Copper Wire Annealing

Hello Spectre,

I was again conversing with a member of the Morris family and it was an older son, Robert Morris, who left Syncro shortly after the sale in 1975. George L. Morris retired from the company a few years later. Robert is now retired as well but still has some activities in the machinery resale business.

Another son, Kevin C. Morris, is the President and CEO of a large international company with no ties to the wire and cable industry.

Hello Raoul,

Wow, that's one big copper conductor for in-line electric annealing! (0.257626 inches or 6.543707 mm) I am personally not aware of any company that manufacturers electric in-line electric annealers for copper wire that large. However, sometimes Mr. H.G. Queins ( www.queins.com/de/welcome/ ) ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) has knowledge of such esoteric machinery.

If there are no in-line electric annealers, then the next logical step would be to review copper batch annealers such as those manufactured by Ebner Industrieofenbau Gesellschaft m.b.H in Austria ( www.ebnerhicon.at/ ). Make sure however you have a detailed discussion with them about hydrogen embrittlement and delayed hydrogen embrittlement so that you are comfortable with that subject. You must not end up with hydrogen embrittlement. See thread www.wirenet.org/forum/viewmessages.cfm?forum=12&topic=493

Hello Raoul,
Here is one source for inline annealing AWG 2.
Niehoff provide several annealers (electrical or inductive) also for bigger diameters (rod break down)
One annealer for the AWG 2 could be the R 800.
Please contact us.

Best Regards
Frank Knobloch

Greetings from Toronto,
Peter is forgetting the possible use of Plasma Annealing systems ( www.plasmait.com ) for which neither speed nor diameter present a problem.

However, if the wire can be annealed with a "simple" resistance annealer, as Frank correctly indicates, it will be the most practical solution.

Willy, we did not forget you. We reviewed the Plasmait web site and the maximum diameter we could find in the annealer section was 5 mm. which is a little smaller than 4 AWG.

Frank, we did not forget you either. We went to your web site in Germany. The largest in-line electric annealer you show is the R 560 and the largest single copper wire is 5.60 mm. or about 3.5 AWG.

We also checked the SAMP and Lesmo web sites and found no larger in-line electric annealers.

We believed those to be the four best options.

Gentlemen, if we cannot find it on your web site, we do not read minds.

None the less we are very pleased that you responded.

Best regards to the both of you,

PS. Frank We noticed that for some reason, you are adding two copies to your original posting each time. If you are having some sort of problem, please contact me at ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) and we will see if we can correct it.

Willy. Please always leave a space before and after a web site addresses or an E-mail addresses. Then the links should work properly for you. If you still have problems and you know how to write HTML, the modified HTML pre-written commands here are very easy to use.

I read the original problem with interest and thought that a long time ago Syncro had an annealer that would do this size. I also thought about plasma annealer but the only one I have seen for copper wire was also on an enamelling system and while the line speed was fairly high (not compared to same size wire drawing) the wire was small. One problem I could perhaps see is that the wire on the enamelling system was fairly clean entering the annealer.. not sure about 2 awg being similarly clean.
