Connectors & Contacts
Wherever a physical, breakable connection is required in an electronic or electrical circuit there is a need for a connector. These come in a vast array of shapes and sizes and many can be manufactured (or incorporate contacts that can be manufactured) using Precision Micro manufacturing technology.
From minute pin connectors and arrays to integral spring contacts and RFI connector shields, Precision Micro has the skills and the capabilities to meet the majority of micro contact and connector requirements.
For low to mid volumes, our in-house forming capability may well be the preferred manufacturing option, where components are profiled by Photo Etching and formed using modular press tooling.
Because connectors are required to operate across a range of environmental conditions and in many instances need to have improved wear resistance and enhanced conductivity, a variety of surface finishes and coatings are offered. The company frequently provides gold, tin, silver, tin/lead, and sulphur/nickel, coatings complete or selectively plated onto contacts, enabling customers to obtain the fully finished component from a single source.
Flexibility in manufacturing
- A wide range of design types can be achieved using Precision Micro’s manufacturing technology.
- Our modular tooling can reduce lead times for prototypes and initial quantities.
Low risk strategy
- The initial use of in-house forming with low cost modular tooling, requires little initial investment and reduced lead times removes an element of marketing risk.
- Designs can be optimised without incurring a significant cost penalty.
