Radyne Corp. shipped its new oxygen-free copper-wire bright annealing system to a supplier of electrical-grade copper and aluminum wire. The inline atmospheric bright annealing system maintains the highest quality surface finish and interior strength for copper wire by eliminating traces of alkali, minimizing carbon deposition and stress relieving. This system anneals copper wire in sizes ranging from 10 gauge to 2 gauge (.102 inches to .258 inches) in diameter at speeds of 700 feet/minute or more. The power supply used for this application is a newly designed TFN induction power source.

Radyne is one of 40 companies making up the Inductotherm Group. The Milwaukee, Wis.-based company designs, manufactures and sells advanced induction power supplies, coils and machine automation for a variety of applications.
