Ground-Based & Airborne Strap Gallery II

Our Copper Thermal Strap (CuTS®)  Design Galleries are not only a testament to our expertise and heritage, but our ability to accommodate a vast array of customer demands.   

The Ground-Based & Airborne Gallery provides a small handful of examples of the countless copper thermal straps designed and manufactured by TAI for national laboratories, universities, and commercial electronics, cryogenics, photonics, semiconductor companies, and defense contractors.

At TAI, we design and assemble hundreds of copper and carbon straps each month.  Our quality and prices cannot be beat, and our design galleries speak for themselves.  The following are just a few examples of some of our previous custom and standard model straps. To learn more about our copper strap design, fabrication and testing capabilities, contact us today!

*Unlike some sites, TAI never uses stolen, manipulated, or photo-shopped images to falsely portray non-existent product lines, customization and plating services, or production & assembly capabilities. For example: many images of TAI's thermal straps are stolen from our website and catalogs, and illegally used to market poor quality, Indian or Chinese-welded, (ETP) copper electrical shunts on These are not thermal strap suppliers, nor engineering firms (unfortunately, some of our customers have fallen victim to this type of false/misleading advertising).
