Luma supplies wire which is used as corona wire in large digital printers. The corona wire generates a field of positive charges. The wire is exposed to a high voltage which puts high demands on its durability and strength. Type of wire used is mainly gold plated tungsten and tungsten-rhenium but also cleaned and oxidized wire is used. Read more...More Product Announcements from Luma-Metall AB
The unique properties of tungsten are further enhanced in our tungsten-rhenium wire. Already tungsten wire is a high strength wire and by alloying tungsten with rhenium the strength will be further improved. This is for example a suitable characteristic where the wire dimension has to be the smallest possible in combination with a high strength wire.

Tungsten is remarkable for its robustness, especially the fact that it has the highest melting point of all metals and the highest tensile strength. That makes fine tungsten wire very effective. Also remarkable is its high density of 19.3 times that of water, comparable to that of uranium and gold. This high density also means a high absorption capacity for radioactive radiation and X-rays.
