Coating System - High Load Contactor Switch
New Technical Solutions and Equipment Design with a perspective on Product Quality and Product Cost.

Market: Industrial / Manufacturing


Develop a high Load (500V, 4000A) electrical contact system for a racked continuous coating line.


Product Development Process Deliverables:
  • Researched and identified existing technologies for the base contactor which could be customized for the application.
  • Provide full CAD models and designs supporting the modification of the base contactor for automatic engagement and disengagement.
  • Provide full CAD models and drawings of the structural and conductive mounting hardware to implement the contactor system on an existing coating line.
  • Facilitated the fabrication of components and assemblies leading up to assembly and system test.

  • Provide System design and supported implementation within a targeted 3 week period of time.
  • Although modified, the base contact system is purchased and enhanced from an existing supplier who could provide key service components on an ongoing basis.
