FENN is pleased to provide metal forming machinery solutions for the processing of superconducting materials. Superconductors are materials that conduct electricity with little or no resistance. This means that, unlike the more familiar conductors such as copper or steel, a superconductor can carry a current indefinitely without much loss of energy. They also have several other very important properties, including that no magnetic field can exist within a superconductor.
Superconductors have drastically changed the world of medicine with the advent of MRI machines, which have meant a reduction in exploratory surgery. Power utilities, electronics companies, the military, transportation sectors, and theoretical physics have all benefited strongly from the discovery of these materials. Research persists today as the world continues to understand best methods of utilization.
Over the years, FENN has designed and build a variety of metal forming equipment used to process superconducting material, as it is prepared for its final purpose. Drawbenches (wire drawing machines) and wire flattening and shaping equipment are examples of machines that have been utilized for various superconducting material applications.
