Polyimide discs for vacuum picks?? | 30 October, 2013

I was looking for thick polyimide discs that are usually applied by a connector manufacturer for a pick surface. Every disc I have found online is .001 thick unlike the more rigid ones. We are hoping to find a source so we can manually apply to some connectors in house. Any ideas??

Vince,

We see the same disks on some parts incoming. SMT PEM nuts in tape and reel are very common. We get the parts from PENN Engineering. One of them is SMTSO-M3-4ET. PENN Engineering may be able to steer you in the right direction on who their supply is coming from - worth a shot.

Email sent! Good suggestion.. I knew I had seen them on components other than connectors!
