In recent years the demands our customers have to meet have grown considerably due to the more extensive electric systems now found in cars and the need for more power output which accompanies them. For more power output and higher current flow, wires with larger cross sections are required. At the same time, however, there is also the challenge of reducing the weight of the vehicle. Our customers are solving this predicament more and more frequently by using aluminum wires, which are lighter than copper but must be designed with larger cross sections in order to ensure the same conductivity. In close cooperation with customers and OEMs we have therefore specially developed the LS series for this category of wire cross sections, the large splices. Now cross sections of up to 200 mm² are no longer a hurdle, and so-called cascade welding (the welding of connections with different metals such as aluminum and copper) is entirely possible.
