Stanford Adwanced Materials enjoys a long history of manufacturing electrical contacts. Customer confidence in product quality and dependable service reflect the company's ability to deliver the best quality at the right time.
Whether you require discrete silver semi-refractory contacts, silver tungsten or copper tungsten contacts, cold formed rivet contacts or brazed assemblies, make SAM your first point of contact.
Each contact application must be analyzed on its own merits. Electrical circuit considerations, mechanical forces, environmental and service requirements (among other aspects) are relevant to the contact application. As you likely already know, similar applications often use very different materials that depend on the very specific circumstances of the application. Please call or email us with your inquiries and let SAM work for you in your search for the product, component or material that is right for your electrical contact application.
Most common aircraft circuit breakers and relays require direct current, high-reliability circuit protection for control and/or enabling systems or indicating alarms.
Devices for controlling machines, automation, process controls and indicating alarm conditions.
High voltage transformer applications under load experiencing moderate to severe arcing.
Reclosers are electrical contact devices that eliminate contact bounce.
In these types of applications, resistance to arcing is important. Due to the speed that the circuit is turned off, current chopping is a factor.
