At the beginning of our current management (1974), a foundry established in Casorezzo (close to Arluno) produced copper wire bars, which were used to laminate copper rod, pickled in specific tanks and then wire-drawn in Arluno.

Year by year, the development of new technologies allowed us to streamline its processes, improving the productivity and quality of our solutions. Affinazione e Trafileria di Arluno has been continuously updating its procedures: today, several automatic and increasingly faster machineries have supported and enhanced the former, basic manufacturing methods. Currently, the production line can simultaneously draw up to 32 copper wires, on 2000 Kg. reels.

In 2015, a new production facility was acquired in Crova (near Turin). Alongside the headquarters in Arluno, this second site has allowed us to manufacture a wider range of products and many new measurements have been added: micro-capillary (from mm. 0,05), silver-plated wire, alloys.



Our manufacturing process is based on converting electrolytic copper rod into capillary wire.

Vergella in fase di sbozzatura
Copper rod is obtained by modern systems of continuous castings, using high pureness cathodes (up to 99,99%).

The wire-drawing process consists in many passages of wire through dies: these transitions reduce the diameter and extend the wire, producing few waste.

Diamond or compax (synthesized blend of diamond powder)

To ensure this process, done at the required temperature, drawing machines are equipped with tubs and lubricant emulsions. These help and facilitate working to dies and pulling rings.

Simultaneously, on the same machineries, other procedures take place: copper wire is annealed (passing through electric furnaces) and wrapped (statically or dynamically) on plastic or iron reels, up to Kg. 2000 of capacity.

At the end, the final product is finished copper wire, ready to be sell and transported.

Thanks to its chemical and mechanical characteristics, copper wire is largely employed in electric cable production and electronic field (automotive, appliance sector, for example).
