Press-fit connections are created by pressing a connector pin into a contacted PCB hole
. At ept, we work with flexible press-fit technology.
The contacting facilitates an electrical connection between the different layers of the circuit board. To do this, a hole is drilled through the board and copper is applied as the carrier material.
Contacting takes place using a defined and controlled force
– an enormous advantage for consistent quality and fast, problem-free processing
. What makes this particularly special is that the press-fit pin has a larger diagonal than the diameter of the PCB hole
. The flexibility is in the press-in zone.
Press-in tools allow several connectors to be pressed in at the same time. In contrast to soldering, the PCBs are not thermally stressed. A gas-tight, durable, mechanically and electrically conductive connection with low contact resistance is created between the press-fit pin and the hole wall.
In addition to tried and proven press-fit technology featuring our Tcom press® press-fit zone, ept offers many other types of termination technology products
. Soldered connections, THR, SMT
– we offer a suitable solution for every application.
