Bead has a long history of providing pins for a variety of connector pin applications in industries such as automotive, telecom, aerospace, industrial, medical and more.
Bead's contact pins can be used for power, signal, or even electro-mechanical applications as part of a connector.
We supply custom contact pins to some of the world’s largest connector manufacturers, so we know connector users want more features, higher performance and lower cost. Our unique engineering, manufacturing and processing capabilities allow us to provide just that; we design, tool and produce custom contact pins very quickly with minimal tooling charges.
Custom connectivity based on connector pin size, pin shape, base metal & plating, mounting options & other application specific requirements like a retention feature or bent / right angle pin.
We’ll work with your design team to optimize the pin design for your assembly process including pin insertion, packaging (e.g. tape & reel & other requirements. Send Bead your requirements and our engineering team will turn them into a working custom solution. With our unique manufacturing and processing capabilities, our engineering team is able to design, tool and produce custom solutions very quickly with minimal non-recurring engineering (NRE) charges.
