Customized aluminum busbars
Aluminum with high purity has excellent electrical properties. For this reason, aluminum rails are used both as current conductors and for optimized heat transfer at contact surfaces. Pure aluminum produces a closed aluminum oxide layer (Al2O3) under given environmental conditions. This property makes aluminum very corrosion resistant to external influences. However, this oxide layer is not conductive. Therefore, aluminum busbars require thorough pretreatment and preservation.
The EMS Group is certified according to
DIN EN ISO 9001:2015
Busbar manufacturing with know-how
Our well-coordinated production in multi-shift operation ensures that we can react flexibly and produce your components and assembly units in the desired quality.
In addition, we are able to produce single pieces, prototypes, small quantities, but also large busbars with expansive dimensions and in high quantities at consistently high quality.
The real challenge is not high quality per se – but consistently high quality – contact us now!
Conductor material aluminum
From aluminum semi-finished product to lightweight busbar
Aluminum busbars are the lightweight alternative to copper busbars. Aluminum busbars have the advantage over copper that they are much lighter. The installation and also the handling of aluminum busbars is very easy due to the low weight. However, a low density also means that the cross-section, for the same amount of current, must be selected significantly larger compared to copper.The silvery light metal is ideally suited for all non-cutting manufacturing processes. Aluminum corrodes within a short time. For this reason, thorough pretreatment is important!
For the individual design of your busbars, use our engineering know-how – we look forward to hearing from you!
