Copper Bus Bar

Providing Copper Bus Bars to OEMs for over 30 years

MetPlas offers complete copper bus bar manufacturing. The copper bus bar process includes CNC machining and precision bending to the most exacting of customer specifications.  MetPlas’ approved platers can provide both tin and silver plating for bus bars.

Copper bus bars are typically used in high current, low voltage distribution and control equipment. Typical bus bar applications include busway systems, low and medium voltage switchgear, panel boards, switchboards, and feeds to heavy electrical uses in commercial and industrial buildings.

Bus bars can be made from copper or aluminum, but copper bus bars provide better electrical conductivity. Because of copper’s greater electrical conductivity, smaller bus bars can be used, reducing costs. Copper bus bars have better resistance to corrosion, providing longer life cycles as well as improved performance in harsh environments.
