SuperPower Inc., a subsidiary of Furukawa Electric Company of Japan, is once again participating in the SuperConductingCity Exposition at the 2014 Hannover Messe, the world’s premiere trade fair on energy and industry technology topics. SuperPower also announced a new product offering to highlight an innovative technology and manufacturing advancement made over the past year.
“We are pleased to announce the addition of 30 micron substrate thickness option to our standard offerings of 50 and 100 micron substrate second-generation high temperature superconducting wires,” says Yusei Shirasaka, president of SuperPower. “This new geometry was developed at the request of a number of our customers who will benefit enormously from the additional current density they will gain from this even thinner wire. Our 50 and 100 micron substrates have already been half the thickness or less of our competitors’ wires, offering an enormous advantage for coil configurations. The 30 micron option will give an even greater benefit in current density that leads to smaller size and lower weight of devices.”
“Advanced Conductor Technologies has been anticipating this new, thinner profile conductor for incorporation into our high-current density Conductor on Round Core cable,” says Danko Van der Laan, founder and chief executive officer of the company located in Boulder, Colorado. “The 33% reduction in conductor profile in combination with much better mechanical properties, will contribute an increase of up to 50% to our extremely current-dense, flexible cable that will be incorporated into devices such as the next generation of accelerators and high-field scientific magnets.”
SuperPower will be in the Energy section of Hannover Messe, hall 13 booth C50 of the SuperConductingCity exhibition, along with industry partners Karlsruher Institut für Technologie and Oswald Elektromotoren GmbH as well as other superconductor industries.
