Coil Winding to Meet YOUR Requirements

We are open to any design ideas our customers may have. Our coil winding capabilities include odd, non-standard shapes and a wide variety of other unique characteristics.

HBR works with wire gauges from 2 to 42, so we can produce your next project no matter how complex your design may be, or how tight the tolerances required, we welcome the challenge. HBR Industries specializes in turning customer designs into tangible products.

We work with both round and flat wire in our custom coil processes in a range of standard and specialty gauges to meet your needs. A variety of materials are available, including:

Our manufacturing expertise enables us to produce custom wound coils that exceed the standard industry callouts of the materials used. With our in-house fixturing capabilities and strategic partnerships with area machine shops, we can produce the tooling and fixturing needed to manufacture high precision, custom coils that perfectly match your specifications.


What Is American Wire Gauge (AWG)?


American wire gauge (AWG), also known as the Brown & Sharpe wire gauge, is a standardized wire gauge system used since 1857 predominantly in North America for the diameters of round, solid, nonferrous, electrically conducting wire.  The cross-sectional area (diameter) of each gauge is a principal factor for determining its current-carrying capacity. Some important aspects of AWG, include:


  • Increasing gauge numbers denote decreasing wire diameters
  • The AWG tables are for a single, solid, or round conductor.
  • When the cross-sectional area of a wire is doubled, the AWG will decrease by 3. This doubles the ampacity.
  • When the diameter of a wire is doubled, the AWG will decrease by 6. This quadruples the cross-sectional area and the ampacity.
  • A decrease of ten gauge number reduces the electrical resistance and increases the conductance by a factor of approximately 10.
  • For the same cross section, an aluminum wire has a conductivity of approximately 61% of copper, so an aluminum wire has nearly the same resistance as a copper wire 2 AWG sizes smaller, which has 62.9% of the area.


American Wire Gauge’s (AWG) Precision Benefits


HBR Industries values the need for an in-depth understanding of wire gauges, and what those differences mean regarding your requirement needs. Properly deciphering wire gauge sizing and knowing what gauge of wire you need can often be a tricky task. That is why HBR Industries, Inc., based on each individual client’s needs and requirements, utilizes the AWG chart as the guideline for all wire related projects.


The shared AWG chart below is based off bare-no film wires. We also have the capabilities to do work with other wires with coating or film, contact us to find out more.


Coil Prototypes, Design Assistance & More

At HBR Industries, Inc., we do more than just standard production runs. We can also create prototype parts and components to test fit, form, and function, along with one-off pieces for your specialized application.

We can work with you, as needed, to enhance your part designs for improved performance or better manufacturability. If you’re not sure which material is best for your needs, if your design dimensions are not quite right, or if you need any help in any capacity to make your parts work or fit the way you need them to, we offer design assistance through our close network of vendors.
