EloPin® Press-Fit

Brandauer is the proud, full-service supplier and the only UK supplier of EloPin® Press-Fit.

A press-fit pin enables the solderless connection of the pins to a PCB. With elastically deformed or solid pins which are forced into the PCBs plated-through-holes with insertion-tools/machines, the result is a gas-tight and reliable connection between the press-fit-area of the pins and the PCB.

The EloPin® Press-Fit is a product developed by TBS Sorig, manufactured and distributed by several independent licensees.

As the only manufacturer in the UK with a license to supply EloPin®, coupled with a vast history and successful track record in the manufacture of various compliance pin forms, Brandauer are in prime position to satisfy all press-fit pin requirements.
