This bracket is so tiny, we use a vacuum system to remove it from the progressive die. It’s made from beryllium copper that is heat-treated and tin-plated. The part has to provide enough spring to ground a circuit to the enclosure. The customer tried outsourcing, but the Chinese manufacturer couldn’t produce the part to print.
EJ Ajax produces the part to spec, and we use a Minnesota-based source for heat treating and plating. The result: The customer gets the desired quality and saves operating expense due to a streamlined supply chain.
