DMC Power Manufactures Superior Substation Bus Connectors

Onsite_Bus_ImageDMC Power’s revolutionary Substation Bus pipe connectors use our hand held swage tool powered by a 10,000 psi pump to produce a unique, 360° radial swage connection. Swaging gives your Bus a superior connection over a weldment because there is no heat-affected-zone to weaken the pipe.

Extensive comparative testing has shown that DMC Power’s swaging system and Bus Connectors outperforms welded and bolted systems in tensile, bending, vibration Corona/RIV, current cycle and fault current testing.


Substation Bus Connector Advantages:

    • Bus bars can be pre-cut and assembled prior to swaging
    • Swage in any weather condition and avoid expensive construction delays
    • Permanent swage connections mean you never have to tighten bolted connections again
    • Consistent quality of swaged connections no matter who performs the Swage
    • Faster installations mean substantial cost saving; Swaging is proven to be at least three times faster than welding
    • Easy to use! Our simple Bus SOP will train and certify users in less than 30 minutes
