Copper Thermal Straps (CuTS®) 

In addition to our Graphite, PGS, and Graphene Foil Strap products, TAI offers OFHC copper cabling thermal straps (CuTS®); also referred to as heat straps, "thermal braids," or "flexible thermal links." CuTS® are assembled on-site (by our experts), using our unique, proprietary, cold press process, and never welded, brazed or soldered (setting them apart from most copper straps, which are typically welded, and simply outsourced & repackaged from 3rd party machine shops, resulting in a host of quality, dimensional conformance, cleanliness, and performance issues). 

Because TAI has complete control over all strap design, assembly, finishing, and cleaning processes (and the proper manufacturing facilities and staff), our CuTS® products are the most affordable thermal straps commercially-available (at just a fraction of the cost of all competing copper, aluminum, and carbon-based straps). The TAI team manufactures hundreds of copper straps each month, and we've delivered (or are currently filling), production orders for organizations like Fermi and Thomas Jefferson National Labs, SLAC, BAE Systems, ASML, the Department of Energy, Honeywell, and more.

While CuTS® are used in space by NASA, ESA, Airbus, and Lockheed Martin (among others), they are more commonly used in electronics and laboratory applications by universities, national laboratories, and engineering companies (specializing in cryogenics, light source/photonics, and medical instruments & devices). To learn more about our copper strap spaceflight heritage and other qualification testing and results, read below, or feel free to contact us at any time.

From a single strap for a cryocooler or focal plane, to production orders of thousands of straps for military cameras, particle accelerator cryomodules, cold boxes, and lithography equipment for the semiconductor industry; our team has done it all, and is here to help!
