1997 TMS Annual Meeting: Exhibitor

February 9-13 · 1997 TMS ANNUAL MEETING · Orlando, Florida


Booth #700, 702     Cleveland, Ohio

During the 1997 TMS Annual Meeting Erico personnel will be demonstrating the CADWELL® Process. The CADWELD® Process is a method of making welded electrical connections of aluminum to aluminum, copper to copper, and copper to steel in which no external sources of heat such as electricity or gas are required.

The CADWELD® Process is based on the reaction of granular metals which when reacted produce a molten metal. This reaction, which is completed in seconds, takes place in a graphite crucible. The liquid metal flows from this crucible section into a mold section where it meets the end of the conductor to be welded. The temperature of the molten metal is sufficient to fuse the metal of the conductors and results in a welded molecular bond. Welding alloys exist for aluminum, copper, and copper to steel connections.
