Press Fit – Press Pin – Compliant Pin

These connectors are starting to dominate some sectors of electronics.

Global Datum has engineered solutions ranging through:

  • Simple toggle presses for 50way connectors
  • Wide throat arbor presses with moving press fit nests
  • ASG Press carriers

A Press Fit nest accurately locates a pcb over the press pin support areas.

Connector pin counts vary from a few hundred to tens of thousands (27,000 is our current
record). For each pin a corresponding hole is created (to give the maximum support).

We check that the stress within the support plate does not exceed yield and substitute very high strength alluminium for certain dense connectors.
