Cold Headed Leads & Pins
Custom designed pins and leads used for connectors, semiconductors, quartz oscillators, glass-to-metal seals, pin grid arrays, hinges and fasteners applications

Sussex Wire is a contract manufacturer of cold headed pins which are used as terminal pins, connector pins, and other PCB pin components where strength, precision shape – especially with high concentricity – and good smooth surface finishes are required. These qualities ensure proper automatic connection with a high mean-time-between-failure rate and serve applications which require disconnection and reconnection multiple times for service or maintenance. PCB pins are manufactured using a wide variety of materials that are cold formed while maintaining contact integrity, incorporating oxygen-free copper alloys (CDA 102, CDA 2102), copper-core alloys, copper clad steels, stainless and low expansion alloys for hermetic seal applications, and many others.

Some of these parts are notable due to Sussex Wire's unique ability to form a very large head on a small shank, thereby replacing a more expensive and less precise alternative, i.e., brazing two components together, as in the electronic pins shown below. The concentricity of these parts is quite nearly perfect.
