Insulated Flexible Cooper Bars

Insulated Flexible Copper Bars;

Insulated Flexible Copper Bars are formed by coating folios overlapping each other by a special PVC compound. They are safe connectors.
These flexibles can be easily formed and conserve their shape avoiding deformation for a long period. These connectors are capable of carrying more electrical current than rigid bars hence having several layers that increase the electrical current surface.
Therefore, the flexibles can easily be used in smaller crosssections when compared to rigid bars, whereupon they constitute cost reduction.
The dimensions which are shown on the table are standard sizes. Our production limits are; from 9mm up to 53mm width, from 1 to 12 layers of copper folios, each might has thickness of  0.5, 0.8 or 1.0mm.  

We can produce special sizes within these limits acc. to your order.

Advantages;
Ensures safe and secure joints
Ensures time saving by the help of installation easiness
Ensures size/dimension savings by the help of usage in tight spaces
Ensures cost and design work savings
Ensures easiness for forming and process

Application Areas of Insulated Flexible Busbars:
Inner couplings of Low Voltage Power Panels
Expansion joints of circuit breakers
Expansion joints of transformers
Expansion joints of busbars
As earthing bands
In electrically powered vehicles
In coating stations
As battery connectors
Joints of industrial machinery/equipment

Method Of Application:
These busbars have to be cut and drilled after forming according to position of joint. Drilling and/or cutting previously may possibly cause defection on drill and cause irregular folio ends due to folios gliding during forming.
Drilling and cutting during installing materials are generally actualized using a busbar fabrication machine.
It is highly recommended to tighten material in between anchor place during drilling and/or band saw cutting processes for securing occupational safety and operational quality. For joints applied to busbars, it is also possible to manacle instead of any drilling.
