Electrically Conductive and/or Corrosion Resistant, Custom Phosphor Bronze Stampings (Wire Form Stampings)
Phosphor Bronze Stampings cover a wide range of products and frequently unique, OEM, specialty and custom designs that generally involve specifications for wire form stampings with a particular electrical conductive or resistant metal substrate and/or metallic plating/coating. Particular grades of Phosphor Bronze with various percentages of copper and tin in the alloy is ideal for different types of applications including wire form stampings. Phosphor Bronze for metal stampings is actually an alloy of copper and tin and varying percentages of these two metals offer increased corrosion resistance (tin) and additional strength offering wear resistance, durability and stiffness. Copper is the electrically conductive part of the metal and various grades of Phosphor Bronze offer differences in overall friction (usually low friction), high castability of durable yet unique designs meeting the needs of a wide range of market sectors involving wiring, electrical cabling, circuit boards, electronics, batteries, switches, automotive applications,Aerospace Hardware/Aerospace Fasteners, various electronics parts for manufacturing and assembly, the Plumbing & Electrical sector along with construction, HVAC work, repair services, and residential or commercial wiring in buildings of all sizes.
There are of course many usage applications for Phosphor Bronze Stampings. Some of the common types of uses in the automotive, aerospace/aviation sector, electronics and other businesses that use these types of wire forms is extremely diverse. Many of the common types of wire forms and stampings used in the automotive sector include, but are not limited to: automotive wire forms, automotive contacts (e.g. contact assemblies), battery terminals, circuit boards, connecters, plug contacts, and other parts and components such as automotive crimp terminals, brackets and clips, lugs, relays, shields, spring contacts, steering position sensors, switches, and many other types of automotive wire forms and automotive mechanical fasteners.
Some other industry-specific examples include Phosphor Bronze Stampings for industrial applications. A few examples of the product types include: bearings (and sleeve bearings or thrust bearings), bushings, gears, pinions, screw machine parts and components, shafts, springs (e.g. industrial springs such as compression springs, torsion springs, extension springs, industrial-strength springs and/or other types of commercial-grade springs), thrust washers, valve parts, and many other types of parts.
The electrical conductivity and/or resistance of the specific design of Phosphor Bronze Stamping as well as the connected parts, components or assemblies can include basic wire form designs such as industry-standard Lock Washers, specific types of Cotter Pins, Ring Cotters, smaller springs or mechanical fasteners, or completely unique designs. Many of the specific types of electrical-related uses include a wide range of products that include: battery holders, cable assemblies, circuit board parts, coaxial cables, control and instrumentation cables, electrical connectors, electrical flexing contact blades, electrical receptacles, electrode materials and components, electrodes, electromechanical spring parts/components, electronic and precision instrument parts, fuse clips, fuse holders, resistance wire, screws, shims, studs, switches/switch parts, test points, triaxial cables, wallplates, washers, wire brushes, wire terminals, and many other types of OEM, standardized, specialty and unique custom wire form parts and wire form stampings.
Of course with all of the electronics in so many products, Phosphor Bronze Stampings are useful in a wide range of market sectors. We can meet a wide range of production standards: ASME standards and specifications, other industry/manufacturing standards, and Government/U.S. Military/Navy (AN, MS, NAS and NASM) specifications.
