Discrete Contacts can either be sintered or wrought. Sintered discrete contacts are available in a wide variety of materials and compositions. ECL combines refractory metals, tungsten, tungsten carbide and molybdenum with silver and or copper to produce the most rugged of power engineering materials. ECL also produces silver-carbon and silver-nickel materials through unit compaction powder metallurgy.
ECL produces discrete electrical contacts from wrought materials in a wide range of shapes and forms. Silver-cadmium oxides, silver-tin oxides, silver-nickels and other materials with high silver contents are processed through various metal working techniques to conform to customer specifications.
Throughout all types of processing, density and the material microstructures are regularly monitored to ensure products shipped meet all of the specified criteria.
