Weld Pin Through Hole Connection for Printed Circuit Boards

Through-hole electrical circuit connections are made, by inserting a weld pin into the hole extending between conductors on opposite sides of a circuit board and performing a welding operation.

Weld pin 10 has head 11 which intimately contacts printed-circuit conductor 12 adhering to one side of paper epoxy substrate 13. The weld operation forms bulge 14 in pin 10, so that it makes intimate electrical contact with conductor 15 on the opposite side of substrate 13. This type of electrical connection is particularly suitable for paper epoxy circuit boards 0.062 inch thick.
