Continuous cast shapes –
Aurubis SHAPES

Aurubis SHAPES is a cast product characterized by a rich variety of shapes and copper materials. Our shapes are individually tailored to our customers' production processes and end applications. The product portfolio includes both oxygen-containing and oxygen-free copper materials ranging from high-purity to low-alloyed copper materials. Aurubis SHAPES therefore represent the optimal starting product for the fabrication of high-quality strip, foils, plates, pipes, profiles and forgings made of copper materials.

Basis for sophisticated applications

Aurubis SHAPES are ideal for sophisticated applications thanks to their consistently high quality. The range of materials extends from high-purity copper (purity of 99.99 %) to age-hardenable CuCrZr alloys and other high-performance alloys.

Aurubis SHAPES form the basis for a wide variety of products that require high electrical or thermal conductivity in combination with excellent strength and outstanding surface properties. They are thus not only a reliable basis for established applications but also a significant driver of state-of-the-art technologies.

It is particularly important to us to meet customers’ individual requirements and specifications so that we can ensure optimal processing and functionality in the following applications:

  • Cable strip with the highest standards for welding suitability and surface quality
  • Molds for foundry technology
  • Lead frames
  • Plumbing pipes and industrial tubes for air conditioning technology

Furthermore, Aurubis offers several processed products and special shapes such as anode molds, which are directly produced from our Aurubis SHAPES.

  • Aurubis SHAPES are used in forward-looking e-mobility
  • In power electronics, inverters require materials that offer high electrical conductivity along with tight dimensional tolerances
  • This allows a great deal of energy to be transmitted in large cross-sections
Applications in demanding environments
  • Aurubis SHAPES can be used to produce high-strength connectors that provide the requisite level of conductivity.
  • These include copper-iron alloys, which meet stringent requirements for strength and conductivity in connectors that are decreasing in size
  • Aurubis SHAPES made of CuCrZr alloys combine high strength and good electrical/thermal conductivity
  • CuCrZr alloys form the basis for sophisticated products such as those found in rocket propulsion technology

Multimetal supplier Aurubis produces high-quality metals as well as semi-finished and finished products at its plants and production facilities as it pursues its mission to become the world’s most sustainable smelter network. We not only have an enormously high-quality approach to our own semi-finished and finished products; our focus on sustainability and the environment has been a daily incentive to us to continue improving for more than two decades. With our new label,  Tomorrow Metals by Aurubis, we indicate that sustainability plays a role in all our activities. The four pillars of environmental protection, awareness of our carbon footprint, recycling and responsibility – for people as well as the supply chain – serve as guiding principles to help us achieve the goals we have set for ourselves. As a result, customers acquire products that are not only excellent quality but also sustainable and low-emission, as a basis for processing along the entire supply chain.

Aurubis – a customer-oriented partner

Supply security

Aurubis produces a wide range of metals and semi-finished products and makes an important contribution to the circular economy through multimetal recycling. Supply security is ensured through fully integrated production from anodes to cathodes to copper products. This is also reflected by redundancies with four ROD plants and four tankhouses.

Innovation capacity

The metal extraction processes at Aurubis are continuously improved so they remain state-of-the-art. We draw on the unique expertise of our specialists in the extraction, processing and recycling of metals and complex compounds.

Strong partner

Aurubis is a solidly positioned MDAX company and is thus a strong, financially sound copper supplier for the long term. We offer customer-specific price hedging solutions with full pricing transparency

Copper on account

Aurubis offers customers an option called copper on account (Wandelkupfer), which enables them to secure supplies for their own supply chain using copper positions. Customers can flexibly procure copper from Aurubis and provide it to their own suppliers through copper accounts.

Sense of responsibility

For Aurubis, responsible corporate governance is an integral contribution to securing the company's future. The 2030 sustainability targets establish the framework for this purpose. They are a component of the Aurubis corporate strategy and are divided into the focus areas People, Environment, and Economy.
