Solutions | Solid Wire Pins

Bead's precision pin tips reduce insertion and mating forces by up to 35%. This makes them ideal for all your PCB, connector and wire wrap applications. Square and round solid wire pins are available in a wide variety of configurations, including: straight, right angle, offset, stars, flanges, serrations and barbs. Standard sizes are available from stock and custom pins can be designed and produced quickly with minimal tooling cost.

Our precision manufacturing process is high speed and scrapless so our customers get high quality and low prices — even for custom pins.

Bead Electronics

All of Bead's round pins have spherical radius tips; square pins feature our "parabolically revolved" tip. With no burr and smooth transitions between tip and body, our pins offer:

  • Lower insertion force
  • Lower mating force
  • Less marring of mating surfaces
  • Less debris


Our Competitors' stamped or milled pin tips have burrs and abrupt transitions that increase insertion and mating forces, scratch mating surfaces and create conductive debris.
