Tungsten copper alloy (Copper Tungsten Alloy, CuW, or WCu) is a pseudo-alloy of copper and tungsten. As copper and tungsten are not mutually soluble, the material is composed of distinct particles of one metal dispersed in a matrix of the other one. The alloy combines the properties of both metals, resulting in a material that is heat-resistant, ablation-resistant, high thermal and electrical conductivity, and easy to machine. Parts are made from the WCu alloy by pressing the tungsten particles into a desired shape, sintering the compacted part, then infiltrating with molten copper. Sheets, rods and bars of the alloy are available as well.
An electrical connector is a conductive device for joining electrical circuits together. The connection may be temporary, as for portable equipment, or may require a tool for assembly and removal, or may be a permanent electrical joint between two wires or devices. There are hundreds of types of electrical connectors. In computing, an electrical connector can also be known as a physical interface (compare Physical Layer in OSI model of networking). Connectors may join two lengths of flexible wire or cable, or may connect a wire or cable to an electrical terminal. Although cable glands are often called "connectors", a technical distinction can be made in the terminology, which differentiates them from quick-disconnect, conducting electrical connectors. The distinction is often not made. Higher voltage applications bring a diverse set of challenges in design and wear of electrical contacts. Some of these high voltage contacts are operated in oil, others in air, others in a vacuum and still others in varying gases to deal with the unique requirements of high voltage applications. Some of the problems encountered will be high wear, arcing and sticking (or welding).
Our copper tungsten alloy materials are used owing to their unique physical properties.
Copper tungsten alloy electrical contacts have good resistance to arc erosion, mechanical wear, contact welding and good conductivity.
Copper tungsten alloy electrical contacts are widely used as contact tips and contact electrode.
