Electrical Contact Assemblies

Electropak Ltd manufactures a range of electrical contacts that are used in electrical switching, control and connector applications. Contact assemblies manufactured by Electropak include; solid contacts, fixed contacts, moving contacts and bi-metal contacts.

Bi-metal Contact – Welding Button Contact – Silver Electric Contact

Manufacture of the assemblies often involves a solid or bi-metal contact being attached onto a copper or beryllium copper backing strip. The processes used for metal joining include; riveting, spot welding, brazing and soldering.

The materials used for the contact include silver and silver alloys such as silver nickel. The choice of contact material and backing strip material is dependent upon the application of the part.

Welding button contacts manufactured by Electropak are more suitable for higher temperature applications such as motors and thermostats. These often involve a bimetal contact welded onto a machined part or backing strip.

Electropak has extensive machining and fabrication facilities meaning we can manufacture a range of fixed and moving contacts.

We manufacture electrical contacts for the rail, marine and medical industries. Also, our AS9100 REV C approval enables us to manufacture electrical contacts and contact assemblies for the aerospace and defence sectors.
