This movie illustrates Zierick’s capability to design and create complex tooling in-house. Combined with our terminal development capabilities, Zierick offers a unique advantage in the electronic packaging industry.
This movie shows Zierick's new family of SMT connectors.
They are highly reliable and provide an
economical way to connect a wire to a
Surface Mount Printed Circuit Board.
These innovations consist of a surface
mounted insulation piercing crimp terminal
and a special tool which crimps
the wire into the terminal and locks it
This time lapse movie demonstrates the Zierick Header's forgiving tolerances and its ability to center itself on surface mount solder pads.
We began by placing a double row header and a single row header off the center of its corresponding pads. As the board is heated, the solder begins to melt. First the single row header will begin to move into place. As the capillary action draws the solder, it pulls the header assembly tightly to the PCB. Then the larger double row header will move into place. Notice how the solder wicks up the cavities as the board heats.
