ASTA manufactures high-quality insulated winding material made of copper for use in electrical machinery in the high-energy sector, so-called conductors (CTC) for transformers, and Roebel bars for generators. ASTA has a top position worldwide in these areas.
At our location in Oed, Austria, wire is produced since 200 years at a dimension that is specified by the customer. It is formed accurately down to one hundredth of a millimetre, insulated with special enamel, paper or a netting tape and transposed to CTCs.
"ASTA stands for high-quality copper components used in the industry for high-energy generators and transformers worldwide."
ASTA has an approximate 40% share of the European market and around 20% world market share.
Numerous patents have arisen from the close working relationship with our customers, for example the netting tape or the TG continuously transposed conductors.
