Zierick's surface mountable solid pins deliver high retention and great solder joint strength. These pins incorporate a unique design on the pad, allowing the pins to achieve proprietary capillary action, creating a stronger solder bond to the printed circuit board. The capillary action eliminates the need for fixturing, minimizes rework, increases interconnection reliability, and improves quality by eliminating solder joint voids. The pins are compatible with auto placement systems. They are available in 0.040 inches, 0.060 inches, and 0.080 diameters and a variety of lengths. Standard pins are brass with a tin/lead 95/5 over copper finish; copper pins are available upon request.
