Exton, Pa.-based Showmark LLC, a manufacturer of winding and production systems for the wire industry, has released a line of precision flattening mills. According to the company, the mill is ideal for producing copper-based tabbing or interconnect wire for solar module production.
The mill produces wire with a flatness tolerance to within +/- 2 microns. It features carbide flattening rollers that can be easily adjusted for different wire thicknesses by turning a hand wheel, Showmark adds. A digital readout indicating the roll gap is included for assisting in the setup.
The mill is available as a stand-alone bench-top unit with a complete drive system, or it can be incorporated by Showmark into a fully integrated flattening, coating and respooling system.
