Products Strip, Wire


Composing strips, wires

Sustainable solutions start at the beginning of the supply chain

Prematerial made of copper alloys meet - like no other material - the highest standards of elasticity and tensile strength, bending and stamping properties but also thermal and electrical conductivity. Our materials turn into durable and modern products. This can be ensured by the sustainable Diehl Metall recycling cycle for resource efficiency. Wire is used to make high-strength signal conducting harness wire in the on-board power supply, strip are used to make metal-plastic compound systems for electronic and electrotechnical applications such as ABS, ESP, transmission control systems or central wiring units.

We develop alloys for today‘s applications and thus shape the technologies of tomorrow

Diehl Metal Applications is, with its locations Sundwiger Messingwerk (Germany) and Diehl Metall Shenzhen (China), one of the world's largest manufacturers of casted strip and wire made of copper alloys. The Miller Company distributes strip made of innovative copper alloys for Diehl Metall Stiftung & Co. KG for the US market. Diehl Metall Shenzhen (China) and it´s partner in Kunshan (China) are slitting centres that enable a fast contact to the customers in Asia.

Diehl Metall offers the following portfolio of alloys for strip and, with reservations, also for wire:

  • Bronze

The continuing miniaturisation of components leads to constantly rising requirements for the strip material regarding thickness tolerance, flatness and surface quality. As one of the few manufacturers Diehl Metall offers low tolerances of strip and wire.

Therefore quality objectives can only be achieved once the pre-rolled strip or pre-drawn wire maintains low tolerances according to the processing stage.

Companies who specialised on the stamping process need strip with narrow dimension tolerances and low residual stress. These properties can be ensured at Diehl Metall due to the 20-roll-cold rolling mills and the state of the art stretchleveling plant.
This guarantees minimal thicknesses of 0.05 mm and rolling speeds up to 1000 m/min.

Raw material savings and efficient recycling due to new copper materials

Not only a growing sensitivity to environment and nature but also the economic need make resource-saving processes more and more important.
The global expansion of the mass demand for technical products and emerging markets increase the absolute need for raw materials and present the danger of raw material shortages.
This future scenario becomes realistic when analysing the greatly increased metal prices.

The use of specific process technologies is pursuing the continuous improvement of the existing product quality while reducing costs by raw material savings. This results in a steadily increasing interest in recycling technologies and the creation of closed material cycles wherever possible - in order to maintain the low use of primary resources.
Diehl Metal Applications can offer valuable solutions to the given objectives by applying our special know-how.
Material savings of 20 percent can already be achieved during the design stage of components by using new copper materials. This also opens new cost effective ways of recycling of surface finished materials and material compounds.

The specialists at Diehl Metall develop material concepts in close collaboration with our customers and partners. This enables us to provide solutions for almost every application.
