(SDK; TSE:4004) has started full-scale marketing of ST60-HSM aluminum alloy board[1], which has high heat conductivity and high strength, for use as on-board bus bar[2].

Key Points: 
  • (SDK; TSE:4004) has started full-scale marketing of ST60-HSM aluminum alloy board[1], which has high heat conductivity and high strength, for use as on-board bus bar[2].
  • The industry is aggressively shifting from copper- to aluminum-alloy-based equipment for various components including wiring harnesses and bus bars.\nSDK's ST60-HSM is an aluminum alloy board that has high heat conductivity, high strength and high electric conductivity, and also has high fatigue strength and high heat-resisting property that are required for on-board bus bar.
  • HSM is ab abbreviation of High Strength Metal.\n[2] Bus bar: Bus bar is used to conduct electricity, and many bus bars are made of copper.
  • Thus bus bar is used to conduct large current.\n[3] 6061 aluminum alloy: 6000 aluminum alloy series consists of aluminum as base material, and magnesium and silicon as additives.
