MetOx manufactures a second-generation high temperature superconducting (HTS) wire using atomically ordered YBa2Cu3O(6+X) material to conduct electricity. Our YBCO transmits electricity without electrical loss or generating heat in operation. HTS wire can transmit 250 times the amount of current as copper, without loss.
We have prototype production systems in operation and have delivered HTS wire to customers. Key elements of our technology are protected by license, international patents, and trade secret know how.
MetOx manufacturing technology is the breakthrough in high performance, reliable, low cost HTS wire manufacturing that industry has been waiting for. Our systems were never bench top or lab scale. We designed for large scale production from the start.
We have a long standing and continuing technology development and system design relationship with a US based, Fortune 500 multinational technology company. The F500 has and continues to contribute considerable resources to the collaboration.
