August 25, 2015 - Helukabel publishes Aluminium Cables & Wires - Processing and Connection Technology catalog, which presents its range of aluminum cables and conductors, as well as information about proper processing techniques and the associated connection technology.

With more than 100 pages, everything readers need to know regarding aluminum as a conductor material and the extensive product range is clearly presented.

Traditionally used in ground and medium-voltage applications, aluminum cables are increasingly being used in industrial sectors such as the automotive industry, aircraft manufacturing, rail technology, media technology, solar technology, plant engineering, combined heat and power plants, or in power generation and storage applications.

The catalog discusses the advantages and special characteristics related to the use of aluminum cables, and provides important facts that might facilitate a switch to this lighter and more cost-effective metal, such as aluminum being approx. 70 percent lighter than copper. Catalog users also learn about the lower conductivity of aluminum, which requires a conductor cross section that is about one-third larger than that of a copper cable. Skeptics will find themselves being convinced that the often prevailing opinion - aluminum is not flexible enough – is no longer a valid point due in part to new production capabilities, and that the aluminum conductor certainly offers an interesting alternative to copper in today’s industrial world.
