Teka’s press-fit header solutions utilize Interplex Industries’ proprietary “eye-of-the-needle” technology. This technology is a proven interconnect technology that eliminates soldering and improves product quality. It allows for the assembly of Teka’s interconnects with a printed circuit board’s (PCB) plated-through hole in such a way that an electrical connection is created and maintained without the application of solder. Interplex’s press-fit technology has been qualified and employed by major automotive companies around the world.
Headers from Teka that utilize press-fit technology include: 0.100”Spacing Headers, Shrouded Headers and Friction Lock Headers.
Jim Zanolli, President of Teka Interconnect Solutions said, “Our new press-fit line of headers is the next step in offering customers high-quality solderless solutions. Teka is committed to delivering standard connectors with unique interconnect features to meet this evolving need.”
