Custom Panels and metal components

Protocase builds copper bus bars, from your design, in 2-3 days. Bus bars can be designed flat or formed, depending on your needs. These may be part of a full enclosure design, or ordered as separate or a stand-alone component for your unit. We build in all the hardware and fasteners that you need. Typically, Copper Bus Bars are unfinished; however, powdercoat finish is also an option (typically with masking specified on contact areas).

Why use Copper Bus Bars?

A well-designed copper bus bar, used either alone or in conjunction with a circuit board, can perform multiple tasks including distributing large amounts of current, mounting components, and dissipating heat. Their judicious use can enable functionality as well as reduce cost.

Copper Bus Bar Examples


Custom copper bus bars are made from copper alloy C110, a general purpose copper designated in ASTM Standard B152.


Copper bus bars are typically unfinished for ideal electrical conductivity.
However, you can opt for select compatible finishes:

  • Resicoat
  • Tin plating*
  • Powdercoat (with masking for connection surfaces)
  • *Completed by a third-party supplier for additional leadtime

    Graphics & Labelling:

    While not as common, you can complete your fully finished custom copper bus with graphics and permanent marking for labeling, serialization, branding and decoration.

    We offer several in-house options to suit your specific requirements:
