Stored Energy Concepts designs and develops electrically-initiated devices that use the energy stored in pyrotechnic mixtures to accomplish mission critical tasks for security, medical, and ordnance applications.
Since 1996, we have grown a reputation for delivering quality, reliability, and innovation to our customers. We strive for zero defects and the highest reliability, with millions of products produced for customers around the world.
From expressing conductive gel on patients in critical condition to currency degradation, Stored Energy Concepts is your solution for the custom design and manufacture of dependable electro-energetic devices (EEDs). We supply fully finished products or components to more complex systems.
Stored Energy Concepts has the ability to not only design and manufacture pyrotechnic and electro-energetic devices, we also offer expert advice. We provide technical and engineering consulting, as well as highly specialized processes such as bridgewire welding.
The team at Stored Energy Concepts delivers value to customers through a culture of superior quality and client-focused innovation. Our ability to solve problems and provide technical support can facilitate your most challenging projects.
Third-Party Manufacturing - Bridgewire Welding Experts
A highly specialized process, bridge wire welding is performed under a microscope, resulting in an ultrafine wire spanning a dielectric gap between two or more metal parts to create an electric circuit. Stored Energy Concepts can offer its capabilities as a third-party manufacturer.
Engineering a Solution to Achieve Your Success
Our labs and technical know-how are available to support your needs for experiments, tests, development, and research. From technical consulting to identify your unique needs, through engineering and production we are committed to our customers’ success.
Precision Contract Manufacturing
At Stored Energy Concepts, we prove our quality and integrity through full traceability of each step in the supply chain, including manufacturing. To every project we bring our expertise, precision, and efficiency, from small production runs to very high volumes.
Pyrotechnic Gas Generators
Gas generators are electrically initiated and pyrotechnically powered to produce gas pressure that accomplishes mechanical work. The size, electrical sensitivity, and output specifications of pyrotechnic gas generators can be tailored to your requirements.
A piston actuator is electrically initiated and pyrotechnically powered to create, in milliseconds, linear action to move and retain a load or puncture a diaphragm to release a gas or a liquid under pressure, or simply indicate that an event has taken place.
A bellows actuator is electrically initiated and pyrotechnically powered to produce linear or non-linear motion. The assembly is hermetically sealed.
Retractable actuators are electrically initiated and pyrotechnically powered to produce linear motion, retracting a piston into the housing when triggered.
A pyrotechnic actuator or explosive piston actuator helps to achieve your goals through a piston to induce the desired mechanical motion.
All actuators transform raw energy into motion. The size, electrical sensitivity, and output specifications of actuators can be tailored to your requirements.
Cartridge Actuated Devices (CAD) & Propellant Actuated Devices (PAD)
We design and manufacture energetic and pyrotechnic CADPAD devices, including actuators, pin pullers, thrusters, puncture devices, and more.
Igniters are used to reliably initiate the next fire function in an explosive train, for example, an airbag inflator or a pyrotechnic smoke or heat composition. Power output, leads length, and housing geometry of igniters can be customized for your needs.
Currency degradation systems include exploding dye packs and ink spraying systems activated by piston actuators. Dye packs for money are utilized in banks and ATMs to prevent robberies around the world.
Currency degradation systems include pyrotechnic dye packs, often depicted as exploding dye packs. These devices quietly emit a cloud of smoke that leaves everything in its path stained, hence the old verbiage, "caught red handed".
Bridgewire welding is a specialized process comprised of microscopically spot welding, bonding, or soldering various alloys of resistance wire to two or more electrical contacts across a hot wire circuit. When the proper electrical energy is applied to the circuit, the wire heats to a temperature to ignite an explosive material in contact with it.
Stored Energy Concepts can be contracted to design the bridge system from your specifications.
Our core values are expressed in everything we do: quality, integrity, positive attitude, and feedback with a culture of respect. These values, along with our methods and strategies make our organization the best of the best.
