  • Is solid or twisted wire too heavy for your needs; is it too fragile and breaks down after repeated bends?

  • Or maybe you can't reach optimum electrical or mechanical performance with your current wire choice?

  • Are you sacrificing attributes and making expensive tradeoffs?

Now is the time to investigate conductive yarns and fibers and see why they are rapidly becoming the smart choice for engineers and designers in a variety of areas: such as aircraft, space, smart clothing, EMI* shielding, and much, much more.

* ElectroMagnetic Interference

2015 should be a strong year for our industry.  The availability of composite conductive yarns and fibers is increasing due to advances in the field and more efficient manufacturing.  More end-product users are demanding greater efficiencies of their products, including reliability and weight savings.  Finally, The Economist predicts partly sunny outlook in 2015 for most of our relevant industries:
  • Automotive--partly sunny
  • Defense and Aerospace--partly sunny
  • Health Care--partly sunny
  • IT hardware--partly sunny
  • Metals and Mining--partly sunny
  • Retailing--partly sunny    (Source: The Economist, The World in 2015, pp 121-124)

"The trend continues to be SWaP--reduced size, weight, and power," says J.C. Ramirez at ADL Embedded Solutions in San Diego.  And SWaP is the keyword, and the basis of our industry--conducutive fibers to reduce weight, increase strength and flexibility. 
Remember SWaP!
