Composite Clad Metal Wire
Custom manufactured precious metal clad wire that can be formulated to meet specific OEM performance characteristics such as temperature and corrosion resistance or biocompatibility, at about one-tenth the cost of solid wire, is available from Anomet Products, Inc. of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts.
Anomet Precious Metal Clad Wire features a smooth finish and is functionally equivalent to solid wire at approximately one-tenth the cost, claims the firm. Typically replacing solid platinum, silver, and gold wire, these precious metals can be clad to lower cost core materials such as copper, Kovar®, nickel-iron, molybdenum, stainless steel, tantalum, and titanium.
Metallurgically bonded to the core material with 2% or more cladding thick-ness, Anomet Precious Metal Clad Wire is offered in 0.002” to 0.125” O.D. sizes and as ribbon up to 1” W. Metal clad wire is more ductile and form-able than filled or plated products and applications include fabricating medical connectors, micro-switches, and other high-reliability components.
Anomet Precious Metal Clad Wire and Ribbon are priced according to construc-tion and quantity. Samples and price quotations are available upon request.
