Especially for electrical components
Pure copper for electrical or electronic plant and components is increasingly produced by hot-pressing. This is because the metal becomes so dense when subjected to the pressing process, with applied pressures of several hundred tonnes.
A contact block of several kilograms can be manufactured in one operation, and the amount of machining required is minimal. Previously, electrical conductors were either cast, which led to poor conductivity, or machined, which can be very costly.
Beyond the above, there are many special alloys available, according to the properties desired. Data for these can be supplied on request.
