Deringer-Ney’s specialty alloys are famous worldwide for solving performance problems in a variety of applications. For example, our Paliney® series of alloys is widely used in applications where a stable electrical signal is required, even in tarnish-prone environments.
For medical service, our Paliney® In-Vivo® medical series is used in invasive and implantable situations. Their combination of high radiopacity, moderate cost, and good mechanical properties make them the market choice for many applications.
For semiconductor applications, Paliney® 7 and H3C are used in wafer, flip chip, and package testing. Paliney 7 has been used for years in cantilever and buckling beam probes, and H3C is becoming popular because of its 3X higher conductivity and higher hardness.
For potentiometric sensors, such as fuel level, throttle position, and other types of sensors, Paliney® 7 and its derivatives make up the contact springs that rub against resistors. Because of their low corrosion potential, these alloys produce stable electrical results over the life of the devices.
We produce a wide range of parts from our high performance alloy. Stampings, machined parts, wireforms, cold formed parts, bimetallic strip, automatically welded parts, and many other product forms are available.
Our machining division produces many implantable components for dental and medical applications. It is located in Blaine, Minnesota, USA, in the same location as our Medical Development Center.
In addition to metallic parts, our insert molding division will overmold stamped springs, cold formed, machined, or wireformed components. Many of these insert molded parts are used as spring assemblies for potentiometric sensors. 100% gram force testing for springs is routine for us.
Our MicroMfg product line includes small and micro parts produced by cold forming, stamping, wire forming, and micromachining. We are continuously pushing the envelope to make parts smaller and smaller.
Deringer-Ney is one of the largest cold forming companies in North America. We have a wide array of cold forming and cold heading equipment with which we make many different medium to small cold formed parts.
The cold heading and cold forming processes are well suited for precious metal parts production, due to their high material yield.
Our electrical contacts division has been producing products for electromechanical switches since 1950. Our cold formed and cold headed contact rivets are known worldwide, as are our brazed contacts. And we are a major producer of contact assemblies produced by automatic in-die staking and automatic welding. And with our metallurgical background we provide assistance selecting the best value contact material. In addition, we help with ROHS compliance.
We produce continuously welded contact tape in our Nogales, MX facility. This bi- or tri-metallic tape provides an economical alternative to solid contacts and is well suited to automated assembly operation.
Our contract assembly division takes advantage of competitive labor rates coupled with the technical resources of the entire corporation. We assemble products with components produced in any of our manufacturing plants combined with other components provided by you or purchased from outside sources.
