Press Welded Connectors
 

Erie Industrial offers custom press welded copper assemblies and flexible connectors, including expansion connections, laminated flexible jumpers, conductors, and shunts. We manufacture these products by stacking layers of electrolytic copper and then applying high current under high pressure, which forms a homogenous bond that exhibits no electrical resistivity across the press weld. This process reduces the temperature rise and increases the current carrying capacity of the connector. Typically used as a substitute for solid bus bar and as flexible expansion joints to connect bus bars, these products are suitable for use in the power distribution, mining, switchgear, and nuclear industries, and they have also been effectively used by chlorine manufacturers and on galvanizing lines.

Offered in custom sizes to fit your specific application, our press welded copper flexible connectors are available in lengths up to 4', widths up to 6", and sheet thickness of .010"-.030".

Overall thickness can be up to 1.25", and current ratings are typically up to 2,000 A, however products rated as high as 5,000 A are also possible. Our ISO-certified facility can handle quantities from prototype to production volumes with lead times as short as 1 to 2 weeks.
