Flat Platinum Wires: Applications & Specifications

Durable, flexible, and inert in even the most challenging working conditions, platinum is routinely deployed for precision wiring applications. The transitional metal’s malleability makes it relatively easy to work despite its high density. This means that both pure platinum and many of its high-performance alloys can be readily drawn into round wires of varying gauges. These rounds can be used directly or treated as an intermediary to high-performance flat platinum wires.

Why Use Flat Platinum Wires?
Electrical engineers are always looking towards the next innovation to improve upon existing products and systems. Though round cables often suffice, it is often hard to immobilize them within insulation. Gradual shifting of individual conductive elements ca...

How do Electric Fusion Machines Actually Work?

Electric fusion machines are high-technology sample preparation systems used to create homogenous discs or beads from raw mineralogical materials – not to be confused with electrofusion devices, also known as butt welders.

What is Electric Fusion? 

The reason the verbiage here sounds so similar is that both methods of electric fusion rely on similar principles to complete different objectives. Electrofusion welding involves the heating, or in some cases pressurization, of two contacting workpieces until they form a joint. This is typically carried out via electronic resistance heating as opposed to open flame or plasma torch welding. Analytical scientists rely on remarkably similar principles when preparing a mineral or metallic sample for X-ray fluores...
