Basis for power engineering: semi-finished products made of copper materials
Whether high-conductivity, processability, mechanical and electrical requirements, connection technology for electronic components has to fulfull various requirements using a high variety of different connectors, such a miniaturized spring-type terminals, press-filt connectors, high current connectors.
Due to their excellent characteristics in conductivity and ductility, semi-finished products made of copper materials are used for transmitting current and signals within the semiconductor industry, in power generation, for power transmission, transformation and distribution as well as for conversion. For every application Wieland offers rods, profiles, tubes, strips and wires - individual and tailor-made for modern information technology.
For sockets and pins for connectors and other electrical components, we provide rods, wires and profiles, made of the copper alloys with the most suitable characteristics. In addition to low-cost brass materials, the materials portfolio includes specially developed copper materials for demanding applications of turned connectors. Depending on the technical requirements, materials with high electrical conductivity or high mechanical strengths as well as a combination of both of these properties will be applied.
