The invention relates to a copper alloy having the following composition (in % by weight): in each case 0.05 to 0.5% of at least three elements selected from the group consisting of Ag, Ni, Zn, Sn and Al, remainder Cu and unavoidable impurities, optionally 0.01 to 0.2% of one or more elements selected from the group consisting of Mg, Ti, Zr, B, P, As, Sb. The invention also relates to a current-carrying structural part made of a copper alloy and also to a cage rotor having a plurality of conductor bars and two short-circuiting rings, which are cast in one piece from a copper alloy.

The invention relates to a squirrel-cage rotor for an asynchronous machine, said squirrel-cage rotor having at least one laminated rotor core that comprises a plurality of grooves and said squirrel-cage rotor having at least one rotor cage comprising electrically conductive rotor bars that are embedded in the grooves of the laminated rotor core in such a manner that the rotor bars comprise at their two end regions an overlap beyond the laminated rotor core, and said rotor cage comprising short-circuit rings that are attached at the end face to the laminated rotor core and comprise a plurality of slots that are arranged in the region of their outer periphery and the end regions of the rotor bars protrude into said slots. The short-circuit rings comprise in each case at least two metal composite discs that comprise at least a first metal disc and a second metal disc that is connected in a planar manner to said first metal disc and is embodied from a different material thereto. Adjacent metal composite discs are arranged at least in part in such a manner that the first metal discs are facing one another. The rotor bars are bonded to the first metal discs in the region of the slots.

A heat exchanger tube with a tube axis, a tube wall, a tube outside and a tube inside. Continuously running, axially parallel or helically circling inner ribs are formed out of the tube wall on the tube inside, each inner rib having two rib flanks and a rib tip. A continuously extending groove is formed between adjacent inner ribs. The rib tip has at regular intervals recurring elevations which have an essentially frustopyramidal form. The inner ribs are raised in the radial direction on the contour line which is defined by the transitional edge of a rib flank to the rib tip and protuberances advancing out of the rib flank are formed in this region. Furthermore, the invention relates to a method for producing a heat exchanger tube.

The invention relates to metal formed parts, a method for producing the formed parts, use of the formed parts and the use of alloys to produce formed parts. Formed parts are produced from copper alloys with the composition (percent by weight) Sn: 2 to 8%, Zn: 2.5 to 13%, Pb: less than 0.25%, Ni: maximum 0.6%, optionally phosphorous, remainder Cu, but at least 84%, and unavoidable impurities, wherein the production of the formed parts includes at least one hot pressing process. The formed parts produced in this manner have outstanding corrosion resistance, very good material properties, high dimensional stability and surface quality and thus are particularly suited for use in water-carrying piping systems.
