Highly conductive, hard wearing metal-graphite collectors for current transfer in mobile equipment.

Electrical Carbon UK Products - Linear Collectors

Gerken Group linear collectors are used where current has to be transferred to mobile equipment through a rail or track. Typically, linear speed is relatively low, but current density is high.


Strong, highly conductive, carbon materials with a very high copper content are produced in a variety of shapes.  The complexity of shapes, together with the materials used and the quantities required, lend themselves to manufacture by pressing to finished dimensions from metallurgical powders.


Gerken has a standard range of components produced in this way and the capability to design and manufacture bespoke parts for customer requirements.

Electrical Carbon UK helps customers in the UK and Ireland to utilise this technology - proven reliability in service.
