The square through hole section firmly engages the PCB while the unique flange defines a consistent seating plane and presents a large soldering surface for strong reliable surface mount processing.
Traditional pin-through-paste processing causes conductive material to be disbursed creating contamination, defects and scrap. The True Grip pin needs only a doughnut of solder under the flange to produce a strong reliable joint. This reduces the amount of solder required by up to 33% while minimizing debris and achieving a better mechanical and electrical connection.
Our True Grip contact pins are inserted by applying pressure to the flange - no more bending that can occur when traditional contact pins are inserted by applying pressure to the pin tip.
Bead has many vision inspection systems available to produce your pin. Using an automated solution for inspection allows us to verify the diameter, thickness and length of each and every contact pin produced.
Benefits of Vision Inspection include:
