The Journey from Ores to Processed Bare Copper wires

Wires are the most basic units of the electrical and electronic world. They are the lifelines of the automated world. From the simplest of gadgets to expensive industrial transformers, wires made of copper guarantee that we are never pushed back to the Dark Ages. The bare copper wires are the romantic elements gracing the machines like poetry. They are used as grounding wires to prevent shocks, and also as transmission wires to pass on important messages through Morse codes. In recent times, the 150 years of consistent performance and sustainability of the bare copper wires have met a strong competition from the fibre optic cables.
