The Process And Characteristics of Silicone Wire Production

High-temperature silicone wire is made of high-quality silicone rubber and high-purity tinned copper stranded wire, and is widely used in household appliances, lamps, industrial machinery and other industries. So what processes are involved in the production of silicone wire? What are the characteristics? The following editor will take everyone to understand together.

What processes are involved in the production of silicone wire?

Silicone wire and cable manufacturing involves various processes, from non-ferrous metal melting and pressure processing, to plastic, rubber, paint and other chemical technologies; fiber material winding, weaving and other textile technologies, to metal material winding, metal strip longitudinal packaging, welding metal forming processing craft etc.

The various materials used in the manufacture of wire and cable not only have many types, varieties, and specifications, but also have a large quantity. Therefore, the usage amount, reserve amount, batch cycle and batch size of various materials must be approved. At the same time, as an important part of management, do a good job in material quota management and focus on saving.

In the production of wires and cables, from the entry and exit of raw materials and various auxiliary materials, storage, transfer of semi-finished products to product storage, delivery, and large flow of materials, rational layout and dynamic management are required.

Wire and cable manufacturing adopts special production equipment with industrial process characteristics to meet the structure and performance requirements of cable products, meet the requirements of continuous length and high-speed production, and form a series of special equipment for cable manufacturing. Such as extrusion machine series, drawing machine series, stranding machine series, winding machine series, etc.

The manufacturing process of wire and cable is closely related to the development of special equipment and promotes each other. New process requirements promote the production and development of new special equipment; in turn, the development of new special equipment promotes the promotion and application of new processes. Special equipment such as wire drawing, annealing, extruding series lines; physical foam production lines have promoted the development and improvement of wire and cable manufacturing processes, and improved the product quality and production efficiency of cables.

What are the characteristics of silicone wire?

The silicone high-temperature wire is made of high-quality silicone rubber and high-purity tinned copper strands. It has the advantages of high temperature resistance and insulation. Widely used in high-temperature places such as household appliances, lighting equipment, industrial machinery, and electric heating products. Silicone high-temperature wire has good acid resistance, alkali resistance, anti-fungal properties, can resist high temperature and humid environment and various greases, and has good cable flexibility, water resistance and pressure resistance.

The rated temperature of the silicone high-temperature wire is relatively high, basically up to 150°C to 300°C, and the rated voltage is about 600V. The silicone high-temperature wire uses silicone rubber as the insulating material, and the insulation thickness is uniform, which is convenient for stripping and cutting. Take UL3239 produced by Zhongzheng Electric Wire Company as an example. The temperature is 150°C. The rated voltage is 3KV-50KV DC voltage.

Silicone high-temperature wire is suitable for the long-term allowable working temperature of the cable below +180°C. It can be used in the temperature range not lower than -60°C. Silicone high-temperature wire is used for electrical connection between mobile appliances in high-temperature environments such as power generation, metallurgy, and chemical industry. Household appliances, lighting equipment, electronic equipment, electric heating products, heavy machinery, electric power equipment, industrial machinery, electric heating products, microwave ovens, fax machines, printers, copiers, scanners internal wiring, instruments, motor leads, high temperature environments, such as electronic equipment, combustion equipment, etc.
