Due to such reasons, it has been difficult to use palladium-cobalt alloy plating solutions that are available on the market such as PALLADEX PC-100 as a substitute for gold plating solutions for electrical contacts
in mass production level.
In addition, MEC BETRAS has a significant business in electrical contact
rivets, which we have identified as a strategic growth opportunity within the overall metal fabrication markets," Rafferty said.
The transaction is part of Technitrol's overall plan to exit electrical contact
products, now classified as discontinued for purposes of financial reporting, and transition to a single-segment company focusing solely on its core business - the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic components.
AMI DODUCO is a global leader in electrical contact
technology and fabrication.
Held in Pittsburgh, the conference was attended by about 130 engineers internationally to discuss electrical contact
properties in power and signal distribution.
Based in Philadelphia, Technitrol is a worldwide producer of electronic components, electrical contacts
and assemblies and other precision-engineered parts and materials for manufacturers in the data networking, broadband/Internet access, telecommunications, military/aerospace, automotive and electrical equipment industries.
The seller is AMI Doduco, a Technitrol company and world leader in the manufacture of contact materials, semi-finished products and electrical contacts
that also specializes in electromechanical components, surface coating technologies and precious metal recovery.
This facility will be fully automated and incorporate innovative manufacturing techniques, resulting in lower labor costs, higher quality electrical contacts
, greater operating efficiencies and higher production volumes.
AMI DODUCO, a Technitrol (NYSE:TNL) Company, recently presented two publications at the 52nd IEEE Holm Conference on Electrical Contacts
in Montreal, Canada.
This Indianapolis, Indiana-based company is a manufacturer of high current electrical contacts
, Tungsten base metal alloys, and resistance welding consumables serving the automotive, transportation, utility, die casting, medical, military and metals industries.
Specialty coatings with Ni, Au, Ag, Ru, Rh, Pt are available for solder-wetting, etch-resistance, protective layers, and electrical contacts
Manufacturers then employ one of several proprietary methods for managing particle deposition and wire formation that include template and percolation-based approaches, each suited for distinct applications and both capable of producing conductive nanowires that are automatically connected to the circuit's electrical contacts
The key aspect of the technology is that nano-wires can be self-assembled between electrical contacts
without the time consuming and expensive manipulation that typically hinders the production of nano-devices.
