HPW wires can be wound particularly compactly. The high level of production know-how, state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies and continuous quality assurance guarantee exceptionally robust and high-quality wires. Due to the material-specific defined annealing process, the wires can be wound efficiently and are used internationally

WIND ENERGY

High-performance polymers, multilayer coatings or glass fibers, among other materials, are used to insulate flat copper wires in the wind energy sector.

Due to the specially developed annealing process, HPW’s wires show outstanding mechanical properties. This leads to superior performance during processing, especially when it comes to compact windings.

The high level of production know-how, state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies and continuous quality assurance guarantee exceptionally robust and high-quality wires that extend expensive maintenance cycles of the turbines under extreme weather conditions and on the high seas.

WATER POWER

HPW's wires are used in generators and transformers for the production of windings used in hydroelectric power generation.

HPW offers a wide range of different insulation structures to support customer requirements. Due to their specific insulation as well as the innovative manufacturing processes, the flat wires meet the customers' requirements for robust and high-quality wires in a special way.

RAIL AND MARINE

Especially for rail and marine applications, the winding wires used must be space-saving and durable. More power and a longer service life are achieved by products with HPW high-performance wires due to the possibility of tighter windings and optimized insulation processes.

Internationally renowned customers appreciate the special insulations, such as polyimide films. Thanks to extremely temperature and stress-resistant polyimide films, the wires can be used efficiently and precisely for high-performance requirements in the application.
