Individual terminals and pins are poorly
suited for pick-and-place carrier tape packaging due to their geometry. So it’s
often necessary to add an accessory to the part to accommodate packaging and
automated assembly, especially in high-volume production
environments that necessitate automatic assembly but don’t require an
insulator. Mill-Max’s new spring-loaded pins
fill that void in automated assembly with the introduction of removable
pick-and-place caps.



The spring pins with removable caps in the new 806 Series keep parts centered on the carrier tape pocket by
presenting a large, round target surface for vacuum pick-up so that caps can be
easily removed after the soldering process. These removable caps are made of
high-temperature nylon 46 and are suitable for most soldering processes.

The removable caps, attached to the body of
the spring pin, slip over without compressing or damaging the plunger. And the
four-finger design makes the cap easier to remove. Also, the closed flat top ensures
a reliable vacuum pick-up.

Mill-Max’s new spring pins also feature
precision-machined external components and high-reliability internal springs.
Moreover, the gold-plated components and springs ensure conductivity, corrosion
resistance, and durability.

806-22-001-30-0XX191 Series of spring-loaded pins is available in nine
surface-mount options using standard Mill-Max spring pins 0900-X and 0907-X.
Next, the 806-22-001-10-00X191 Series is available in four through-hole-style
spring pins 0906-X.
