OEM Electrical Connectors“An electrical connector is a conductive device for joining electrical circuits together”

Connector technology is forever advancing as companies develop new products for industry and the requirement for specialized connectors or contacts to be of a specific size and layout becomes increasingly common. Connectors and Contacts are used in many industries; aerospace, military, automotive, consumer electronics, telecoms, medical and test and measurement.

Photofabrication have for many years worked closely with connector manufacturers to supply high quality development metal connector. Photofabrication can supply formed, heat treated and plated contacts and connectors that will represent the final fully tooled product in very short lead times. Often Photofabrication can use in house universal tooling to form components resulting in no hard tooling costs. This allows the customer to develop new products at low commercial risk without the need for full scale production tooling.

For prototype and low volume electrical contacts and connectors the manufacturing technique of coice is Chemical Milling, let us illustrate this in more detail:

Main Benefits of Chemical Milling:

  • Low cost tooling
  • High accuracy
  • Industry leading lead times from concept to finished components
  • Customised parts – you design it – we make it! (Guidelines available)
  • Complete manufacture, blank, form, heat treatment and plating
  • Cost effective prototypes
  • Over 35 years experience in the prototype and development of contacts for the connector industry
  • Burr free & Stress free manufacturing method
  • Prototypes – fast turnaround to meet your needs
  • High volume capabilities
  • Various surface finishes available
