Wire for use in the automotive and aircraft industries
Product category: Wire rod
Copper alloy wire has been around for a long time, but copper alloy wire of exceptional quality and dependability in robust applications is rare. Thats especially true in enhanced, high-performance materials manufactured to solve specific engineering problems. Fisk has been able to produce so many best-in-class products because our employees draw on deep technical expertise, vast resources and that rarest of human elements: great patience.
Fine and ultra-fine wire from Fisk Alloy leverages our decades of know-how in copper alloy manufacturing to offer custom solutions in fine diameter round wire for the spring and connector industries.
Our efforts in specialty and fine wire at Fisk focus directly on the ever increasing requirements for high performance products at smaller sizes, offering clients a valuable tool for meeting the unique challenges presented by miniaturization. From traditional spring materials in beryllium copper, to alternative beryllium-free systems, our specialty and fine wire products bring together our existing alloy and conductor lines to offer unique combinations of strength, conductivity, formability, and resistance to relaxation or softening. With careful consideration of these attributes and a complete range of available plating solutions, we can meet the requirements of a wide variety of parts from electronic contacts to mechanical springs.
BlueBrass® brings both economic and environmental benefits to precision machining by combining performance and regulatory compliance in a single solution.
BlueBrass is a RoHS compliant, lead-free brass with good machinability, high strength, excellent ductility, and ease of recycling. Based on the copper-zinc alloy system and made from common alloying elements, lead is present only in a limited amount for compliance with a growing range of legislative and regulatory guidelines. BlueBrass is recommended for any RoHS compliant machined brass part, and is of particular interest where replacement of traditional leaded brass has proved difficult or impractical due to processing or end use requirements.
BlueBrass performance relies on a unique combination of composition and microstructure. This approach alleviates the need for substitution with elements such as silicon, bismuth, and sulfur — all of which can have negative impact to recycling and product quality, requiring continuous and costly controls in use. Because of its RoHS composition, BlueBrass chips can be safely added to the standard scrap stream without exception. This results in both economic and ecologic benefits throughout the supply chain.
BlueBrass is flexible by design and having a dedicated development team, we can tailor the properties to your unique situation.
Fisk Alloy develops and manufactures high performance alloy wire for electronic components and connectors. Fisk is committed to advancing alloy wire technology so as to provide innovation, excellence and value in all of our wire products.
