Contact Pins

High standards for good signal and power transmission at low resistance have to be met in electrical and mechatronic systems. Coated contact pins combine the positive properties of precious and non-precious materials, ensuring an optimal result.

Contact pins are used for signal and power transmission in assembly and joining technology, sensor technology, and in the medical industry. Due to the exterior conditions, contact pins must be highly workable and there must be a high degree of flexibility in the selection of materials.

Heraeus contact pins combine the positive properties of precious and non-precious materials. A non-precious core is coated with precious metals in accordance with ASTM standards. In this way, the contact pin is given precisely the right properties, is resistant to corrosion, and has a long service life at the lowest possible price.

Our contact pins are available in a variety of different materials and lengths according to your specific dimensions. Heraeus can also add a stamp to any location on the contact pin, if desired.

Take advantage of our many years of expertise in handling contacting solutions. We look forward to advising you.
