As the industry pioneer, Autosplice offers Press-fit solutions that provide our customers with solderless, internally powerful, gas-tight connections. Press-fit (Compliant) Technology is available in a large variety of sizes, types and features and is compatible with high speed automation.
Press-fit connection relies on normal force, just like a contact system unlike soldered connection which relies on cohesive and adhesive strength of solder joint. Press-fit terminals are assembled onto PCB via high-speed insertion machines.
The “eye-of-the-needle” approach has been proven to provide the most reliable technology for optimizing both initial and on-going retention force. The spring-like design used in eye-of-the-needle configurations provides intimate long-term contact force against the barrel of the hole.
All of Autosplice’s compliant pins, blades and sockets are provided in continuously reeled formats as either individual or multiple-position connector components for insertion by high-speed automatic machines.
