The following segments give an overview of the usually applied attachment technologies for contact parts to carrier components. They include mechanical as well as brazing and welding methods used for electrical contact assemblies.
Mechanical Attachment Processes
Rivet staking and the insertion and forming of wire segments into pre-stamped carrier parts or strips with punched holes are the most commonly used methods for the mechanical attachment of contact materials.
Riveting (or staking) for smaller volumes of assemblies is ...
