Anomet Offers Composite-Clad Metal WireMay 15, 2013
The precious metal-clad wire and ribbon can be used to replace pure platinum, gold, and silver in aerospace, electronics, medical connector, implantable device, and sensor applications at one-tenth the cost, with a promised improvement in performance.
SHREWSBURY, MA /Marketwired/ -- Anomet Products Inc. custom manufactures a broad range of composite clad metal wire that can be formulated to improve the performance characteristics of precious metal solid wire at a small fraction the cost.
Anomet precious metal-clad wire can be formulated to accentuate specific performance characteristics, such as strength, radiopacity, and corrosion-, contact-, or temperature-resistance. Featuring a precious metal metallurgically bonded to a core material, such as copper, Kovar, nickel-iron, molybdenum, stainless steel, tantalum, and titanium, the composite clad wire is functionally equivalent to solid wire at one-tenth the cost.
Replacing solid platinum, silver, gold, and gold alloy wires, Anomet precious metal-clad wire typically incorporates 2% or more cladding thickness and is more ductile and formable than filled or plated wire products, claims the firm. Offered in 0.002 in. to 0.125 in. O.D. sizes, typical applications include aerospace, electronics, and medical connectors, implantable devices, and sensors.
Anomet precious metal-clad wire and ribbon are priced according to construction and quantity. Samples and price quotations are available upon request.
