Magnet wire is used in the manufacture of electric motors, generators, transformers, magnetic coils and many other types of electrical equipment. This insulated copper wire is made by passing bare copper wire from a supply spool through a bath of varnish into a baking oven and to a pickup spool. The bare copper wire is continuously coated with varnish. In the baking oven the solvent. is evaporated leaving a tough insulating film of formex resin on the copper wire.
