The cost-effective solution for your custom PCB connector pins
Also known as continuous wire contacts, end-to-end pins are designed to be used with pin-insertion machines. End-to-end pins are manufactured using our unique wire-forming machinery and are supplied on continuous reels. Using wire that is pre-plated, end-to-end pins offer a very cost-effective solution for customized PCB assemblies. Adjustments to the pin geometries are easily possible without tooling costs for the customer. Various swage geometries including star-, wing-, harpoon- and press-fit shapes can be integrated into the pins.
Patented compliant press-fit pins for solder-free assembly
The patented ELBIK-x-press® compliant pins with a flexible press-fit zone ensure solder-free board assembly even in multi-contact applications. The critical parameters such as the press-fit force, the retention force and the electrical conductivity are closely defined to guarantee process stability for our customers.
