Title: Wires - An Integral Part of Human Lives

Wires An Integral Part of Human Lives
Wires have truly become an integral part of human
lives. All electronic equipments feature wires
and it is not possible to create any automobile
sans wires. The same fact suffices for proving
their utmost importance in the human lives. A
wire refers to a single and flexible rod of metal
or strand. It generally features a cylindrical
shape. Wires are meant to accommodate the
mechanical loads. Most importantly, they are
meant for carrying and transmitting electric and
telecommunications signals. A wire is generally
created through a process wherein, a metal is
being drawn through a hole in a draw plate. By
using the wire gauges, a wire can be given a
standard size. The term wire also refers to a
bundle of strands or wire ropes/cables. It is
possible to provide square, flattened,
rectangular or hexagonal shape to the wires.
History of Wires It is believed that wires were
first used in creating jewelry. After that,
during medieval period, wires were drawn in
England. The use of wires would take place in the
creation of wool cards, manufactured goods and
pins. Around 1568, the first wire mill was
established in Great Britain. The founders of the
Company of Mineral and Battery Works were behind
establishing this mill.
  • Uses of Wires
  • Wires are used in numerous things. In fact, the
    list related to the uses of wires is endless
  • Wires are used in wire netting industry.
  • They are used in wire rope spinning and
    wire-cloth making.
  • The biggest use of wires including copper wire,
    steel wire, aluminum wire, nickel wire are being
    found in manufacturing data cables and
    telephones. They are used for the purpose of
    transmission electric power.
  • Wires are used for the purpose of fencing.
  • They are used in the construction of suspension
  • They are used in the formation of scientific
    instruments and musical instruments.
  • They are used in automotive industry in creating
    diverse auto components.
  • They are also used extensively in electronic
  • They are used in motors, generators, transformers
    and speakers coil.

Varieties of Wires The popular varieties
include hook-up wire, magnet wire, coaxial cable,
speaker wire, resistance wire, tinsel wire, etc.
Interestingly, there are only few metals which
are suitable for the wire-making purpose. Such
metals include platinum, copper, silver, gold,
iron, aluminum, bronze and brass. A suitable and
durable wire is that, which possess few specific
physical properties. These properties include
strong in tension, flexibility and superior
quality. However, there are few more metals that
are used in manufacturing special purpose wires.
These metals include tungsten. The wires made
out of this metal are used in manufacturing light
bulb and also vaccine tube filaments. When copper
is blended with other metals including nickel,
silver, and tin, the wires created out of the
intermingling are used in handling diverse
temperatures, in providing lubrication and are
used in providing easier stripping of rubber from
the copper.
Wires may be used for decorative purposes or they
may be used for technical purposes, but there is
absolutely no denial to the fact, that it would
have been impossible to lay the foundation of
that modern world without wires which is entirely
dependent on electronic equipments.
