Products


Our production facility can now manufacture more than 3,000 km of superconducting wire annually and output is fully scalable. All conductors are available with typical single piece lengths in the range 1 to 5 km, depending on the shape and final cross section.

Right from the outset, Columbus Superconductors’ deep roots in R&D have continued to influence its strategy and development. The choice of the materials that surround the superconductor, its final cross section and its shape are pivotal in cable design and it is essential to establish the most appropriate sequence of drawing and rolling stages during production. Research focuses closely on these planning aspects, while constantly bearing in mind the final performance expected of the conductor in its definitive shape.

Beyond design work, the company has a mission to perform and actively support R&D in order to achieve superior MgB2 cable transport performance and broad applicability. In this sense, the company is working on an ongoing survey into cost-effective technologies for manufacturing cables and on several ways to produce and improve MgB2. Most of today’s efforts are focused on demonstrating reliability and scaling-up technologies.
