UK Manufacturers - cable and wire
Alloy Wire International Ltd. is a U.K. wire manufacturer
specialising in the production of high performance alloys, mainly
Nickel Alloys, but including Cobalt and Titanium Alloys.

These alloys might be used in any environment that requires
resistance to heat and corrosion but where the mechanical properties
of the metal must be retained.

Alloy Wire International was founded in 1946 by John Stockdale,
who had worked for Henry Wiggin as the Wire Mill manager. He formed
the company after he realised that there was an opportunity for a
manufacturer of small quantities of electrical resistance wire for
the developing domestic and industrial electrical appliance industry.

Over the next 25 years the company enjoyed a stable existence
without any significant growth. In 1971 the company was acquired by
a small engineering group as a move to diversify their interests.

At this time, Bill Graham joined the company, initially as an engineer
but in 1975 he was appointed managing director, a position he has held
to this day. During the past 25 years, the company has developed
significantly and become a respected company within the wire industry.

In 1991, the owners of Alloy Wire International decided that the wire
industry was not to be part of their long term plans, and offered the
company for sale. This was seen by the management team as an
opportunity to own the company where they had spent most of their
working lives and successfully undertook a Management Buyout from
the group. The current workforce has 100%of the control of all the
share capital of the company, a situation that creates interest,
loyalty and commitment.

Over the years the product range of Alloy Wire International has
changed from electrical resistance wire, to electrical resistance
wire and ribbon, and latterly to the specialist spring and engineering
alloy manufacturer that it is today.

Today's product range is primarily in the high performance nickel
and titanium alloys which are used in spring manufacture, medical
and jewellery applications, chemical and nuclear engineering and in
the aerospace and automotive industries. The size range is from 15mm
diameter to as fine as 0.025mm. Wire can be supplied in coil,on spools
or in straight cut lengths. The profile may be round, square or any
other special shape that the customer may require. The company holds
ISO9002 and Civil Aviation Authority approvals and has in-house testing
facilities for examination and certification of the wire properties.

Founded in 1987 by Des Smith & Simon Rycroft, Elmeridge Cables
provides a comprehensive cable diagnosis, design, manufacturing
and Consultancy Service for applications & Projects, such as rail,
Marine/Undersea, construction, power, voice/data/image transmission
as well as mechanical handling, lifts and other General Use

The Elmeridge problem-solving philosophy is based on the need
to understand customers' needs in depth before deciding on the
best cabling solution and cables supplied by Elmeridge are now
making a vital contribution to projects all over the world.

We have had a long association with one of the world's first
cable manufacturers, Lynenwerk in Germany. Over a century ago
George Victor Lynen's vision centred on the processing of copper
into products for the developing market for electrotechnical

In the eighties of the past century Lynen created the necessary
preconditions in his Hovermuhle factory to meet the new challenge.

In those early years, the methods for manufacture of copper wires
were already known to the "coppersmiths" of the Aache and Stolberg

Already in the 19th century the Lynen-Isaac's company operated a
process for rolling copper wires and rods. Therefore the decision
to take an active part in the developing technology in the
manufacture of electrical conductors was built on skills developed
over the centuries.

The construction of a drawing plant represented the first major
investment in the new endeavour. A chart dated May 1886 kept in the
Lynen archives outline the size and lay-out of this new equipment it
is the erection and commissioning of this which marks the very
beginning of the history of the Lynenwerk. In addition to the
wire drawing equipment a reliable source of energy was required. Water
power, available at the time, was not sufficient.

Therefore, as early as in 1885, plans were made to use steam power.

This required the erection of new buildings for which construction
permits were granted on June 12,1885. The expansion program was
completed in 1886; it resulted in a doubling of the original size
of the plant. After an extended shake-down period, the new 1886
factory was capable of producing goods which met market requirements.

The first finished product was bare wire, drawn on rod breakdown and
fine wire drawing machines in the wire drawing department. Further,
processing of the bare wire resulted in the first finished products:
lightning conductors.

Three years later, the range of manufactured insulated wires was
increased substantially: guttapercha-insulated wires of various
diameters and voltage ratings, two-conductor wires, cables for
lighting and dynamo wires. The preferred insulating material in
those days was guttapercha. The processing of this material must
have required many machines and installations since an entire building
was designated as "guttapercha plant.

Towards the end of the last century, the young Lynenwerk established
itself as a confident, rapidly growing company active on the European
markets. 180 different finished products were already listed in 1886,
including seven-conductor telephone cables and telegraph wires.

Warehouses for Lynen products were established in Berlin, Bremen,
Halle, Magdeburg and Munich as well as in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Zurich
and Brussels. At the turn of the century, the rapid growth of the cable
works required a further expansion of the energy supply. A second, more
efficient steam engine was installed and electrical energy was used for
the first time. In the second decade of the new century, main emphasis
was put on the manufacture of lead-sheathed cables. In 1910 a sum of
41.000 Gold Marks was paid for an electrically powered lead press - one
of the largest investments made at that time for a single machine.

The equipment suppliers of Lynen illustrate the Company's worldwide
connections: taping machines from France, braiding machines from
England and a stranding machine from the U.S.A. (F.A. Selson
Engineering). A 25 years of cable production, Lynen products were in
use worldwide. Starting initially with four warehouses abroad, by 1911
there were already nine. Cities such as Milan, Rotterdam, London, Libau
in Latvia (then in Russia and now in the Soviet Union), Santiago de
Chile and Yokohama in Japan are mentioned in the old records.

Rapid technical development in the following decades required
additional investments. For almost each new product new equipment
was needed. In the late twenties, when Lynen developed plans for the
manufacture of low voltage, paper-insulated lead-sheathed cables, a
hydraulic lead press was procured. Other equipment was constructed and
built in Lynen's own facilities: stranding machines with integrated
paper taping heads, armouring machines with jute serving and steel band
taping heads and asphalt impregnating tanks.

In the mid-thirties, Lynenwerk was among the first manufacturers who
introduced the use of new insulating materials. Preliminary tests were
made to insulate copper wire with plastics. The machines used for this
purpose were originally modified from rubber processing equipment with
successive changes to adapt to the specific properties of the new
materials. After World War II plastic insulation became equally
as important as rubber insulation. In the early 1950s, PVC occupied a
dominating position as an insulating material. Nonetheless, Lynenwerk
concentrated on the development of cables with improved rubber
insulating and jacketing compounds, such as chloroprene. Chloroprene-
jacketed cables were particularly well suited to meet the requirements
for buried cables. These jacketing materials combined good abrasion
resistance, high flexibility, tensile strength - in excess of 150 kg
cm, elongation at break - over 300%, and cold impact resistance to
about -30 C.

They were found to be highly resistant against mineral oils and fuels,
soil chemicals, acids, mechanical damage due to cuts, shear or
compression stresses. They were furthermore weatherproof, ozone-
resistant, and resistant to solar radiation. They displayed a high
thermal stability up to 80 C and were resistant to micro-organisms.

Their water and gas permeability was very low. They were flame
retardant and met operating requirements in the tropics. Even more
stringent quality demands to-day are met by new and further improved
rubber formulations. The flame retardant "Lynilit" cable satisfies the
highest safety standards.

In the sixties, Lynenwerk designed and introduced 'Lyniport' cables
for which patents have been granted worldwide. The Lyniport cable
features a thermoplastic jacket in which glass yarn bundles are
embedded, thus greatly enhancing the tensile strength of the cable,
especially important for aerial cables. In comparison with competing
products, Lyniport cables are lighter and have better transmission
properties. After extensive testing, the "Deutsche Bundespost" (German
PTT) agreed to the introduction of Lyniport cables in its
telecommunication networks in the mid-seventies. In the following
years, the Lyniport system was further improved so that the cable
design could be used for buried and underwater applications. Apart from
its use for telecommunication purposes, the Lyniport construction has
been also approved for power applications.

With Lyniport, Lynenwerk has set a new trend in the cable technology
worldwide. In recent years, Lynenwerk has developed a reputation as a
custom cable manufacturer. Its know-how of over 100 years and its
dedication to the most up-to-date technology serve as an assurance to
customers that it will offer the right solution for any cable problem.
As a result, the number of processed materials grows continuously. By
the use of an increasing number of electronic controls and by
automation, Lynenwerk's production lines have become more versatile.
An integrated test system controls and assures that all Lynen products
meet high quality standards. The Lynen cables are identified by several
methods: green identification thread, VDE tracer tape, jacket imprints
indicating compliance with national, international and European Common
Market standards.

Established in 1979 by my father, Terence Hill, Hilltop Products began
life in a loft conversion at the top of my mother and father's home,
this slightly unusual origin giving birth to the company name Hilltop.

Terry, then an engineer at a local Volex Wiring factory, continually
struggled to find a supplier who could produce high quality coloured
and printed cable markers, usually at short notice, to meet what was
then and remains today, the demanding Automotive Wiring assembly

As such using his experience gained over many years, Terry started
to design and manufacture his own products, and very soon found steady
demand for his services.

>From this Hilltop gradually became more of a family concern and
quickly developed a reputation for competitively priced high quality
products, many of which are individually tailored to meet customer
requirements, and in all cases backed with a service we believe
second to none values which we still hold dear.

Hilltop remains very much a family concern and we are proud to
have amongst our customers some of the U.K's major cable harness
and assembly manufacturer's supplying the Automotive, Aerospace,
Electrical and Electronic Components Industries. We would only be
to pleased to supply names and contacts for a reference to our service
and quality records.

ISO 9002 approved, the company have invested in the most up to date
and efficient sleeving and marking machinery. We work within a
continuous improvement operating strategy, which encapsulates a
combination of individual skills and attention to detail, this
couple with our experience of the industry creates quality service
that everyone at Hilltop are proud of and determined to maintain.
