Electrical contact spring gives long life

In electronic devices, certain components may require one or more spring contacts to achieve reliable electrical connection.This is where Abssac can help with its bespoke precision electroformed products. Utilizing a bellows spring contact, the electrical connection can become a non permanent connection particularly when the parts are to be inserted, removed and re-inserted.

The two types of spring contacts best suited for these applications are gold-plated wire mesh cylinders and gold-plated miniature metal bellows. These are available as standard stock items or custom made to individual specification. Our electroformed bellows type contact springs are manufactured from electro deposited nickel, and then are gold plated to enhance their conductivity. They are both flexible and dynamic and are designed to provide a lifetime of reliable interconnection.Furthermore, they can help overcome tolerance build-up and thermal expansion problems in critical assemblies.

Typical applications include:
