Electric Materials manufactures fabricated components that encompass a vast array of products for both electrical and mechanical applications that are cast, extruded, forged, brazed, machined, or electroplated. Our metalworking capabilities are all based on CNC technology providing you with the tightest tolerances and most efficient production methods.
Electrical Component Manufacturing Capabilities
Electric Materials has the engineering abilities and vertical manufacturing integration to allow us to design and manufacture a complete line of copper and copper alloy components. Our engineering staff has the latest AutoCAD and Design Evaluation Software available to assess proposals. Engineering for both mechanical and electrical connectors centers around established designs and variations for custom applications.
Types of Electrical Components We Manufacture
The fabricated components we manufacture are for both electrical and mechanical applications that need to be cast, extruded, forged, brazed, machined, or electroplated. Many electrical components require more than one of these operations. A significant portion of the machined parts we produce function as electrical connectors. These can be manufactured to existing specifications, or we can review your drawings and provide you with a custom quote.
