Products and Capabilites

To explore the technologies we have to offer, see the descriptions below, or click on the photos for more information.

 

Cold Heading and Cold Forming

In our Marshall, North Carolina cold forming facility, we make a wide variety of custom cold formed parts with a special focus on small to micro parts. Many include secondary operations such as rolling, pinching, and drilling. Typical applications are cold formed pins, heat sinks, leads, standoffs, cores, and others. Our in-house tooling department helps control both cost and lead time. Rapid prototypes are available. More information.

 

 
 

Electrical Contacts and Contact Assemblies

Since 1950 we’ve been one of the world’s largest producers of electrical contacts and contact assemblies for electromechanical switches and relays. We make cold headed contact rivets, brazed, stamped, and welded contacts and contact assemblies.  Many are assembled using automatic staking or high speed automatic welding processes and we can also offer continuously welded contact tape.   Fast prototypes, application assistance and ROHS assistance are all available.   More information.

Precision Screw Machining

We specialize in producing close tolerance, complex CNC Swiss machined and micromachined components for a multitude of medical, dental and other applications.   Manufacturing is done at both our Bloomfield, CT and Blaine, MN operations.  Parts are fabricated from precious metal and titanium and stainless steel alloys.  Our in-house precious metal alloy fabrication and scrap reclamation provides an significant economic advantage to our customers.    . More information.

 

 
 

Specialty and Custom Alloys

Deringer-Ney produces specialty alloys for a variety of demanding applications.  We are constantly inventing new ones. Typical characteristics include high corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, radiopacity, low contact resistance, and in many cases the ability to age harden via heat treatment to high mechanical strength.  Our alloy products include Paliney®, Neyoro®, and Paliney® In-Vivo series, plus more.  These materials can be produced as fine wire, rod, strip and ribbon.  We can fabricate components from these materials utilizing a variety of manufacturing processes including stamping and microstamping, wire forming, machining, and micromachining, cold heading and forming and precision insert molding.  We can provide application assistance and can also furnish contract manufacturing services to fabricate complex assemblies to meet your needs.    More information.

Potentiometric and Low Current Contacts

Deringer-Ney’s Paliney® alloys are widely used in position sensors, potentiometers, and other low current applications. Typical contacts are bifurcated springs which maintain constant contact resistance in sliding applications.  We provide these as discrete parts or as molded assemblies.  100% automatic gram force control with accompanying statistical data compilation is available for our customers.  . More information.

 

 
 

Contract Manufacturing and Assembly Services

Our contract assembly division in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico 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.  Typical products are switches, disposable medical test devices, semiconductor test parts, and other devices that require careful process and quality control.   More information.
