Strip and Sheet

Wieland produces strip, sheets and round blanks in copper and copper alloys from which our customers manufacture components and products used in various sectors, including:

  • Automotive Electronics
  • Communication and Data Technology
  • Apparatus and Plant Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Architecture
  • Metal goods of all kinds

Besides strip made of copper and standard alloys such as brass and bronze, we supply strip in high-performance alloys which are characterized by an advantageous combination of strength, electrical conductivity, formability and temperature resistance. Our strip is available both bare and tin plated. It is produced on state-of-the-art equipment and machinery which ensure a very high product quality.

    Strip in coils and drums

    Coils are the simplest and most common delivery format for strip. Longer strip lengths are traverse-wound into coils which are welded together using a TIG process. An alternative to this is MULTICOIL strip (stacked and joined coils) which can be easily decoiled on horizontal rotary tables. The different delivery formats enable you to process our strip on very different production equipment configurations. Please contact us so that we can support you with the selection of the delivery format that suits you best!

    With Wieland FLEXIDRUM we offer the possibility of using returnable drums, thus reducing the amount of waste.

    Information on the available dimensions as well as on the standard types of packaging can be found in our brochure “Delivery formats for strip”.

    ZZZIP strip ZZZIP strip

    ZZZIP strip

    ZZZIP strip is pre-notched strip. Such flexible flat cables are used, for example, in automotive engineering (clock springs, headliner cables, etc.) as well as in data technology. They simplify the manufacture of flexible, flat multi-conductor cables considerably. ZZZIP strip is pre-notched according to customer requirements. Immediately before laminating, the pre-notched strip is separated into individual leads and directly laminated by the customer. Our experts will be pleased to answer your questions regarding processing.

  • Surfaces and coatings

    Depending on customer requirements, our products are manufactured bare or with factory-applied coating. Moreover, rolled products can be supplied dry or oiled. To improve oxidation resistance they undergo standard passivation.

     Bare strip  Bare strip

    For applications in the visual range with high requirements in terms of optical appearance of the final products, different special qualities are available which are, however, limited to certain ranges of dimensions:

    - Suitable for mirror bright polishing

    - Electrolytically polishable

    - Etchable

    - Bright as rolled

    - Mirror bright rolled

    - Free of Luder lines

    Tin-plated strip Tin-plated strip

    Tin-plated strip

    In electrical and electronic applications, contact resistance of electrical contacts plays a decisive role. The formation of oxide layers can affect the contact resistance or even lead to the failure of connectors. Typically, at least the contact areas are coated. The most common coatings are made of tin or tin-containing alloys. Our strip is hot-dip tinned on state-of-the art equipment.

    Depending on customer requirements, different tin plating versions can be produced. Download for more Information

    We also offer fully and selectively tin-plated or nickel-plated strip. Please let us know your coating requirements.
