Instead of the silver traditionally used to mint quarters, nickels and other currency, modern coins consist of a combination of cupronickel and copper developed by the Attleboro, Mass.-based clad metal manufacturer. Coinage is just one example of how the company works to meet the needs of its customers through providing clad metal solutions. The company is capable of layering together ductile and malleable metals as well as specialty alloys to create clad metals for use in the appliance, automotive, heavy truck, electrical distribution, HVAC, industrial control and telecommunications industries, among others. A top priority for metal producers today is to reduce the impact of high metal commodity costs. EMS provides lower-cost clad products to replace solid copper or nickel whose prices have been driven up over the last 10 years due to speculation and increased global demand. These clads not only offer lower cost for building owners but also meet stringent engineering requirements. “The clad materials we produce offer solutions to problems our customers may be having such as material cost or function issues,” says Jim Glennon, vice president of specialty clads. EMS is capable of producing and shipping both coiled materials as well as final components such as stamped circuit breaker blades or sheets of corrosion-resistant stainless 146 manufacturing-today.com WINTER 2012 engineered materials solutions is capable of layering together ductile and malleable metals. clad aluminum for truck bumpers. One of the company’s most recent products is a copper roofing replacement that consists of a copper skin on each side of a stainless steel core. Other growth areas include metal catalysts, cookware and copper/aluminum to replace solid copper. “We can supply a variety of forms, which gives our customers flexibility,” Glennon adds. “If they are unable to tool components themselves, we can offer that for them.” EMS also produces thermostatic bimetal com- ponents used inside of circuit breakers, appliances and other devices. A Breadth of Knowledge EMS is a global leader in clad metals and thermostatic bimetal components. “What sets us apart is the breadth of clad products we make,” Glennon says. “Many of our competitors pick a certain kind of clad metal to produce, but we have a broad portfolio of products and years of experience working with the materials that go into our products.” http://www.manufacturing-today.com
