CNC Machining of a Copper Resistor Contact for the Power Transmission Industry

A customer in the power transmission and switching industry came to Hogge Precision in need of a resistor contact. We manufactured the part out of solid 110 copper, using CNC machining. This part was completed in one operation using a multitask machine. We used a single turret twin spindle machine with C & Y-Axis.

The finished product had an O.D. measurement of 4.000 inches, and was 1.143 inches long. We performed all necessary testing and inspections prior to shipment, then delivered 500 units to the client, who was highly satisfied.
