Wire Flatteners

The MTM Wire Flattener provides the end user with the ability to decrease the coil diameter with no decrease in coil or overall transformer performance.

The simple, compact design allows for easily installation on any MTM winding machine and can also be retrofitted to other makes with automatic or manual wire feed system.

A typically 20% reduction in cross-sectional area is attainable; however the designer will have to take current density and loss calculations into account.  Some wire extrusion occurs during this process.

MTM recommends experimentation to achieve optimum settings and closely watch for cracking or peeling of insulation if flattening of the wire is too severe.
