  • Publication number: 20210013684
    Abstract: A contact carrier includes a carrier body receiving a plurality of contacts and a fastening element fastening the carrier body to a carrier element. The fastening element includes a first clamping element connected to the carrier body, a second clamping element formed on the carrier body in a shiftable manner and opposite the first clamping element, and a locking device locking the second clamping element in a position relative to the first clamping element. A distance between the first clamping element and the second clamping element can be varied by a relative movement of the second clamping element in relation to the first clamping element. The first clamping element and the second clamping element, by the locking device, exert a clamping force onto the carrier element arranged between the first clamping element and the second clamping element to hold the carrier element.

  • Patent number: 10862259
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing at least one functional region on an electrical contact element such as, for example, a switching contact or a plug type contact. In order to prevent the high environmental burden which is disadvantageous in wet-chemical methods and to overcome the restriction to a very small number of materials caused in hot dip methods in physical technical terms, and to substantially improve the spatial possibility for selection and structuring which is insufficient in both techniques, there is provision according to the invention for at least one material coating to be applied mechanically in a highly selective manner to the contact element in the functional region and subsequently highly energetic thermal radiation such as, for example, a particle beam in the form of an ion and/or electron beam, to be directed onto the at least on material coating.
