The recent proliferation of mobile handheld electronic devices has created a massive market for metal battery contacts. Due to vast variety of battery types, materials and shapes used in the typical handheld device, it’s critical that you choose a manufacturing partner with thorough knowledge of spring materials and plating to facilitate designs that are reliable, cost effective and robust. Some battery contacts are designed as wireforms/springs, some are designed as stampings made from sheet or strip materials, while others are hybrids of the two. Battery contact manufacturing requires a multidisciplinary approach, and you need a next-gen production partner with a vast breadth and depth of expertise on the subject matter.
