Through continuous innovation and development, Ningxia Orient Tantalum Industry Co., LTD. (OTIC) has become one of the extremely important rare metals and new materials such as tantalum, niobium, beryllium supply base and export-oriented enterprises in the area of our national high-tech; as well as the first in China, the third in the world in the area of tantalum smelting process, thus OTIC was recognized as one of the state-level key high-tech enterprises by Ministry of Science and Technology.
By most of the experienced domestic tantalum-niobium beryllium smelting and processing experts, relying on the talent, scientific and technological progress and scientific management, after two entrepreneurships, OTIC achieved the result of leapfrog development. After foundation, OTIC has achieved 594 national and provincial-level research projects, 1604 new product preparations, 82 national and provincial-level scientific and technological progress awards, 24 state-level new products, and formed 3 large types, 35 series and 188 varieties of products of tantalum, niobium and beryllium alloys, such as tantalum, niobium, beryllium metal, alloys, compounds, artificial crystal, wood processing and products, beryllium alloys and processing materials for exportation, as well as the main product of capacitor grade tantalum powder of which the production and sales ranked third in the world, and the capacitor grade tantalum wire first in the world.
In recent years, more than 90 percent of the series of export products such as high capacitance tantalum powder of 30,000,40,000,50,000,70,000 μ fv / g and fine tantalum wire of φ0.25, 0.20,0.17 mm sold to the international market. Tantalum powder reaches the level beyond 200,000 μ fv / g; tantalum wire reaches the level of refinement to the φ0.06 mm, the research results of which would greatly increase the potential for the development of enterprises, and meet the need of international market calling for the high capacitance tantalum powder and fine tantalum wire. Tantalum powder and tantalum wire exported to the nearly 20 consumers in united States, Japan, South Korea, Israel, Europe and other countries and regions, and established a good relationship of supply and demand with Kemet and Vishay in United States, AVX in United Kingdom, NEC in Japan and other world renowned capacitor companies. The newly developed capacitor grade niobium powder, the hematocrit of which reached 60,000 to 100,000 μ fv / g, and the sample of which validated by a number of capacitor companies in the world.
