New Alloy: Inconel® 617 is now available from Alloy Wire. Learn about Inconel® 617
Electrical resistance wire for heating elements, resistors and heat sealing packaging machines. Also, High Strength Hot Cutting wire for foam cutting, plus ‘Hot and Cold Cutting Wire Assemblies’ for durability and strength at high temperature.
If you’re looking to calculate the resistivity of your wire, please use our Resistance Wire Calculator to quickly and easily calculate your wires resistance to a current.
Electrical resistance wire is widely used in heating elements in a number of applications. The following calculations give a guide to selecting an electrical resistance wire for your application.
An introduction to electrical resistance of flat and round wire, a calculation of element resistance and a temperature-resistance table for 80/20 NiCr.
Heating element for a variety of applications and a guide to the appliance, element type and suggested surface loading range.
A guide to calculations necessary for calculating element resistance for a variety of applications.
A table and diagrams allowing the user to locate the most suited round wire and diameter to form a close wound coil.
Calculations and examples for flat wire elements.
Conversions between imperial and metric.
An overview, diagram and calculation reminders.
A table of resistance wire stock sizes for reference.
All information is given for guidance purposes only. For specific heating element or resistor design please consult a qualified electrical design engineer.
We can now supply the complete ‘hot cutting’ wire assembly for Industrial Foam/EPS cutting machines as an alternative to the customer buying direct from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
At this stage, we are limited in our design and assembly components.
The good news is we can send you a sample of our wire assembly for you to promote and for customers to see our design work. We are also keen for you to send customer samples for us to check and assess feasibility.
Alloy Wire manufacturer and stock wire and flat wire for hot wire cutting, plastic bag sealing and heating elements.
You are welcome to purchase the exact quantity of wire for your application. Our resources have allowed us to develop wires for specific industries that perform even better than the standard product.
Please ask about alternatives that may be more cost effective and durable.
We operate from two state-of-the-art factories which, with continual investment in the latest technology and machinery, produce precision wire sizes from 0.025mm (.001″) to 21mm (.827″) in small batches and medium volumes.
We manufacture the wire you require in the quantity you require it. Our world class manufacturing performance gives you a flexible order quantity ranging from 3 meters to 3 tonnes, meaning you only pay for what you need.
Our lead times are short because we stock in excess of 200 tonnes of more than 60 ‘High Performance’ alloys and, if your finished wire is not available from stock, we can manufacture within 2 weeks to your exact specification.
We are the world leading manufacturer of precision drawn round wire, flat wire, profile wire, bars and wire rope in more than 60 different ‘High Performance’ nickel alloys, also known as ‘Exotic’ alloys.
We produce round wire, flat wire, shaped wire and wire rope to your exact specification and in exactly the quantity you are looking for. With a range of 60 Exotic Alloys available, we can provide the ideal alloy wire with specialist properties best suited to your chosen application.
Our usual delivery times are 2 weeks, however if an urgent order is required, our Emergency Manufacturing Service ensures your wire is manufactured within days and shipped to your door via the fastest route possible.
Every customer has their own needs, their own standards to adhere to and their own projects with unique specifications. Alloy Wire is a partner in finding the right solution first time.
