A client in the water treatment industry came to Norstan, Inc. in need of a specialty project which required the spot resistance welding and stamping of a brass and copper terminal. The terminals were to be used within a water flow sensing application, and had to meet strict quality specifications as outlined in the customer supplied 2D CAD drawing.

The manufacturing process included spot resistance welding, stamping, heading and assembly. The customer spec called for the use of beryllium copper and brass for the terminals, and silver and cadmium oxide, as well as gold plating, for the contact. The part weighed .006 lbs. It measured .842" long and .281" wide, and held tolerances of ±.003". Upon completion, we performed thorough testing, including a peel test, full dimensional test, and contact torque test.

At Norstan we strive to give our customers the highest level of quality and customer service available. We currently produce between 50,000 to 100,000 per order for this client. To learn more about this project, or for more information on our other products and services, please contact Norstan.
