PLANSEE - High Performance Materials for Power T/D

PLANSEE is a world-leading manufacturer of products made from refractory metals and metallic composite materials. The privately owned company is part of the Plansee Group and has been manufacturing innovative powder-metallurgically processed high-performance materials for 90 years, and covers the whole production process, right from the raw material to the finished product.

The PLANSEE top materials for power engineering are tungsten-copper (WCu), copper-chromium (CuCr) and tungsten carbide-silver (WCAg).

As switch contacts, PLANSEE materials demonstrate their unbeatable wear resistance and optimal burn-off behavior. PLANSEE contact materials are utilized all along the supply chain for the reliable separation and closing of circuits.image

PLANSEE switch contacts hold their own at even the highest loads: voltages of up to 1,200 kilo volts, short circuit currents of up to 50 kilo amperes, temperatures of up to 20,000 °C and switching speeds of up to 25 m/s. And that at lifespan of over 40 years.

In PLANSEE's powder-metallurgical manufacturing process, the company manufactures metallic composite materials with optimal property profiles for power engineering. With challenging joining technologies and fully automated manufacturing processes, PLANSEE produces high-precision components and switch contact systems at the PLANSEE Powertech production site in Switzerland.

From the raw material to the finished product, we have everything in hand: thus we guarantee reliable high quality across the supplychain, and can respond to new market needs in record time. Customers value PLANSEE's ready-to-install contact systems.
