Copper Extrusions

We specialize in the production of small lot, specialty shaped extrusions from C11000 electrolytic tough pitch (ETP) copper and can provide our customers with a range of options from full bar lengths, precision cut lengths, or fully machined products ready for assembly.

Capabilities

This is a complete system that includes a high-speed induction billet heater, a shuttle press capable of automatic bar pointing, and a standing wave in-line water-cooling system to reduce copper oxide formation during the extrusion process. The process is finished on our 45-foot cold draw bench, which allows us to reduce the extrusion to its finished size with a high degree of precision, repeatability, and hardness.

Complex Geometries

Copper extrusions with tight radii, small features, and sharp angles. Pictured to the right is a part requiring many complex features. The final part is a silver plated, high voltage arcing contact assembly using a copper extrusion and silver tungsten contact tip.
