To ensure the best performance with Essex
fine wire, please be sure to exert special care when handling. We suggest the following guidelines:
All incoming shipments should be checked for damage during transportation. The inspection should occur while the freight carrier is present at your location. Any damage should be properly noted on the delivery receipt.
When using a fork lift or hand cart, be careful not to bump the outside of the packaging as this may damage the magnet wire.
Avoid double stacking the wire pallets.
Store packaages on their original pallets and keep unused spools safely stored in their original cartons until needed. Store the wire package in a dry, non-corrosive location. Keep the wire protected from dust and other contaminants.
Spools should be placed back into their original packaging and maintained in a manner to prevent damage with other items, including other spools.
Do not stack spools outside of the original Essex packaging.
When removing spools from the carton or package, be sure that it can be freely removed without the risk of touching anything, including the packaging itself.
To protect the wire enamel, do not remove the spool wrapper until ready to load the spool onto the winding equipment. Use extreme caution when removing the tape from the wrapper and place wrappers back in cartons for reuse.
Care should be taken when handling spools near jewelry, metal objects, or chemicals; contact may damage the wire enamel.
Avoid placing your fingers too far into the carton handling slots; contact may damage the wire enamel.
Carry the spools by using the provided hand holes or handles.
During Manufacturing Process
Check top flanges for any damage; use very fine grit sand paper to remove minor nicks on the flanges.
If the spool is to be returned to its original carton for later usage, please secure the loose end by tying it to the flange.
Keep the spool as straight as possible when inserting into a payoff shroud.
Maintain proper tension control during wire payoff.
During Wire Returns
If the magnet wire must be returned, please contact your Essex representative.
