Storm's flexible tooling translates into a more efficient ability to facilitate custom bus bar designs that are manufactured in a shorter lead time whether it's a large or small production run.
To further shorten production times, Storm's new CNC (computer numerical controlled) punching and precision cutting machine can be programmed to robotic-ally produce copper busbars and punch multiple holes the entire length of the busbar while cutting ground bars to exact lengths, all from the same long sheet of conveyor-fed copper bar.
Storm Copper processes well over 1,500 tons of CDA 11000 Electrolytic Tough Pitch Copper in a year. Most of which goes into the production of bus and grounding bar designed to exact OEM specifications. Storm also offers in house electroplating to save OEMs the cost of third party plating.
The benefits of using bus bars center on electrical considerations, like better thermal control or higher capacitance (the capability to hold an electrical charge) as well as improved resistance stemming from lower inductance and impedance. Bus bars also improve the reliability of a power or electrical grounding system.
