Abstract

The previous method of manufacturing connector was to stamp the pins from flat stock. This did not four smooth sides or good surface finish. Physical were not accurate. This improved design uses wire pins (1) that are mounted on a bandolier (3) notched at (5) below the bandolier grip to allow the pin to be broken off. There is less scrap material pin manufacture the bandolier is reusable. The extruded pin, is more accurate, and surface finish is on all four sides.

Break-Off Bandoliered Pin

       The previous method of manufacturing connector was to
stamp the pins from flat stock.  This did not four smooth sides or
good surface finish.  Physical were not accurate.  This improved
design uses wire pins (1) that are mounted on a bandolier (3) notched
at (5) below the bandolier grip to allow the pin to be broken off.
There is less scrap material pin manufacture the bandolier is
reusable.  The extruded pin, is more accurate, and surface finish is
on all four sides.

      Since the pin is to be molded into a housing, the other of this
configuration is the elimination of the spots (2) where the bandolier
grips the pin.  The section on the base of the pin is the only
exposed and that portion is buried in the plastic housing.
