At Hoyt Corporation, we are all about vertical integration for our supply chain. From in-house production of contact materials to in-house production of copper-based extruded shapes for contact backings. Hoyt is the only North American producer of electrical contact assemblies to operate our own extrusion mill in Central Pennsylvania. This service is made possible by our high powered copper bar mill that incorporates a 900-ton Loewy hydraulic extrusion press. This is a complete system that includes a high-speed induction billet heater, a shuttle press capable of automatic bar pointing, and a standing wave in-line water-cooling system to reduce copper oxide formation during the extrusion process. The process is finished on our 45-foot cold draw bench, which allows us to reduce the extrusion to its finished size with a high degree of precision, repeatability and hardness.
With these resources, we specialize in the production of small lot, specialty shaped extrusions from C11000 electrolytic tough pitch (ETP) copper, and can provide our customers with a range of options from full bar lengths, precision cut lengths or fully machined products ready for assembly. All work takes place in a controlled setting, is highly automated, highly accurate, and capable of very fast cycle times.
Our vertically integrated philosophy for electrical contact manufacturing production ensures we have total control over quality, cost, and schedule, and can offer a level of value that is unmatched in the industry.
