Vision Inspection

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. We can also check dimensional accuracy on parts against geometrical tolerances.

Benefits of Vision Inspection include:

  • Flaw detection
  • Reduction in costly and inconvenient product returns
  • Product traceability down to the day, hour and minute of production
  • More insight into process variables such as tool wear so we can proactively schedule tooling changes
  • Bulk
  • Tape & Reel
  • Vibratory
  • Bar Code Labelling
Quality Control
  • Roll Sorting
  • Laser Sorting

Custom Examples

Telecom Connectors

Bead has supplied Amphenol, previously Telect,with high quality, custom wire wrap pins for our telecom )applications for many years. Their delivery performance and customer service are outstanding. Bead can turn product around quickly whenever we experience unexpected demand. I know I can always count on Bead.


Custom IT Hardware

Bead can tool up custom contact pins quickly and inexpensively. They worked closely with us from development through fruition to ensure our satisfaction. My experience working with them has been very positive.
