Reduce costs on 42 Alloy frame material
From a capacitor manufacturer's materials department:
The price of nickel is volatile, and we'd like to reduce the cost of 42 Alloy. If possible, we'd like to use a material that isn't so susceptible to price fluctuations.
Costs reduced by switching 42 Alloy to TDS-1 (magnetic stainless steel).
【Before】 42Ni(Alloy 42)
【After】 TDS-1 ※The Electrical Resistivity of TDS-1 is equal to 42 nickel.
■ Reduce costs (Because TDS-1 contains only 1% of Ni.)
■ Lower size (Because TDS-1 has high strength, it can be reduced the thickness)
TDS-1 is slightly different from 42 nickel in a thermal conductivity.
