True Grip Pins offer reliable and robust electrical connections through a simplified approach and fewer defects during the assembly process.
The hybrid True Grip contact pin offers circuit board assemblers:
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.
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.
Our custom pins are used in a wide range of applications.
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.
Drawbacks to our competitors processes include:
