Copper Contact Terminal for the Fire Detection Industry

Copper Contact Terminal for the Fire Detection Industry

We designed and manufactured the tooling, then completed the multi slide stamping and integrated assembly, which included attaching the pan head screw to the terminal.

Each part weighed .010 lbs., and measured .018" thick, .882" long, .320" wide and .475" high as well as meeting tolerances of ±.005" and ±1°.

The quality process ensured that the outer edges of the bends did not fracture or show grazing. The burr side and grain direction were as indicated by the customer specifications.

The terminal was supplied in the wire-ready position for 16 AWG and the strip-out torque had a minimum of 10 in-lbs.
