Enamelled aluminum wire has been widely used in Asia such as Europe, the United States, and South Korea. In the 1990s, enameled aluminum wire was widely used in Europe and the United States. Before the 1970s, it was difficult to recover copper resources in my country. Enameled aluminum wire was used in cables, power transformers, motors, and other fields.
From this point of view, it should be no problem to use enameled aluminum wire, but due to the abundance of copper resources, the price of copper and aluminum is not much different. People started to use enameled copper wire and got a lot of development in a short time. However, with the fluctuation of copper price and the pressure of cost, aluminum material surfaced and developed rapidly.
Enamelled aluminum wire has been used in Europe and the United States, and international standards bodies such as the International Electrotechnical Commission have also formulated corresponding technical standards for enameled aluminum wire, which also shows that the use of enameled aluminum wire is technically mature. So some customers don't have to worry too much when using enameled aluminum wire.
However, we must also correctly understand the use of enameled aluminum wire, which is different from enameled copper wire, especially its welding problem, which really troubles many customers. It also restricts the development and use of enameled aluminum wire, but after unremitting efforts, the problem has been solved by different customers. Different methods are taken according to different products.
With the further deepening of the understanding of enameled aluminum wire and the better use of technology, the trend of replacing enameled copper wire with aluminum is irreversible and will be further expanded. As long as it is properly designed and used properly, the use of aluminum will be more extensive.
