Machine Tool Wire MTW - UL 1015 Stranded TC
MTW-UL 1015 Stranded TC is one of the machine tool wires used in commercial and industrial applications. The cable has outright versatility and extra high strength suitable for extreme demanding applications. It is due to its top notch design and unique properties that this cable can operate well in the harsh conditions.
It is constructed using copper conductor, one of the world’s leading electrical conductor. Copper is often used in the manufacture of machine tool wires because it is readily available, has excellent conduction, very flexible and strong. MTW-UL 1015 Stranded TC has two categories of conductors: Stranded and tinned copper used for sizes 22 AWG to 8AWG and solid tinned copper used for sizes 22 AWG to 10 AWG, there are both designed as per ASTM M-3.
The cable is designed with a PVC insulation material. The insulator is color coded to aid in identity and avoid confusion during wiring. The insulation system is water tight, flame and heat retardant. It protects the conductors against mechanical nicks.
We use the machine wire for circuits which use 600V power. The cable is predominantly used in the machine tool wiring. Since it has high temperature rating of 1050C the cable operates well in extreme harsh environments. The copper conductor is tinned to reinforce the cable strength and electrical conductivity; this makes it even a better option for applications which need ultra-high strength.

Frequently Asked Questions- Machine Tool Wire MTW - UL 1015 Stranded TC
I want to install Machine Tool Wire MTW - UL 1015 Stranded TC, what instructions should I follow?
Just like many other cables and wires, when doing installations, there are things you need to follow. With Machine Tool Wire MTW - UL 1015 Stranded TC, it is designed to work within specific temperatures and voltage applications. You should not exceed 105 degrees Celsius and the voltage should not be more than 600 volts. Anything beyond those ranges will render the wire dysfunctional within a short time. It may also represent safety hazards for your installations. For example, you could damage the wires or pose risks of having fire.
How can I identify Machine Tool Wire MTW - UL 1015 Stranded TC?
If you are buying UL 1015 Stranded TC wire or doing an installation and want to know if it is the right wire, look at its appearance and the labels or markings. This wire is made of tinned copper strands. So, when you strip out the insulation, the strands have an outer coating that looks silvery or grayish. This is the color of tin. The same strand will look coppery on its core part or the center part. This is the color of copper and it may also appear reddish. You can also check the insulation which is made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
What are the approvals and certifications for the UL 1015 Stranded TC wire?
This wire is industry approvals such as UL Standard 758 – Styles 1344, 1335,1231,1032,1028,1011, and 1015. It also meets UL Standard 1063-MTW, SAE J378, and UL CT Tray rated. The wire also meets other standards such as CSA AWM I A/B and TEW, UL THHW, and UL Standard 1426-BC-5W2. When it comes to flame tests, this wire has met UL VW-1 and CSA FT-1 flame tests.
In what applications can I use UL 1015 Stranded TC wire?
This wire is intended for use in internal wiring of home or commercial appliances in applications where there is exposure to oil, but within temperatures not exceeding 80 degrees Celsius. Where there is no exposure to oil, the temperatures can be as high as 105 degrees Celsius. It is considered a machine tool wire so it had found usage in most machine tools.
