Press for press fit connectors | 25 October, 1999

Hi,

Does anybody know where I could get a cheap but efficient press for press fit connectors (200pins and up)? Pneumatic or Hand lever

Mario, If you are looking for a cheap press to do press fit connectors, then you are asking for trouble. Now, and in the long run. ASG out of West Palm Beach makes a very good press. We bought a 5 ton version and are able to press up to about 2500 pins. They have smaller and larger. With the ever increasing need to press the more complex connectors, you need a press for electronic mfg. The ASG press has a computer, is programmable, and records all SPC data. All you have to do is load and unload board. They also manufacture fixtures, and if you have any experience in press fits, you will understand how reliable a good fixture is. You may be pressing AMP and ERNIES now, but what do you do when a customer ask for the Terradyne's and Molex's. Get something that can do the job. 5 ton press = $35k in case you are wondering. Well worth the dollar in time and efficiency.

Happy press fitting, William
