MULTILAM Technology

The MULTILAM flexo combines peak performance with cost savings

Applications

  • High demanding contact solutions
  • High-current connectors e.g. in Power Transmission and Distribution (PTD)
  • Connectors requiring high tolerance and misalignment compensation
  • Circuit breakers, disconnectors and busbar connectors
  • Mating, sliding and rotary contacts
  • Dynamic and static contact solutions

The MULTILAM flexo type ML-CUX is a two-component MULTILAM for challenging high-power contact solutions. Its unique design optimally unites electrical and mechanical properties resulting in an excellent current-carrying capacity combined with high flexibility and easy assembly even in plugs and sockets with large diameter. A wide spring deflection based on a stretching principle allows high tolerances and misalignment and offers pivotal advantages for the use and fabrication of contact solutions. The ML-CUX fulfills customer requirements regarding compactness, high power density and reduction of Total Costs of Ownership (TCO). It guarantees long-lasting, reliable and low-loss energy transfer.
