Current electronic and electrical products are developing in the direction of refinement, ease of installation and long service life. The POGOPIN spring thimble connector is small in size and has a retractable design, which can well meet the needs of current electronic and electrical products, so POGOPIN spring thimble Connectors are loved by many connector manufacturers.
POGOPIN spring thimble is a very simple part, but it has very high requirements on the process. If there is no good quality control and perfect manufacturing process level, it is particularly prone to power failure and PIN card, or too short life. The process of POGOPIN spring thimble is particularly delicate and complicated. From lathe processing, electroplating, assembly, every link may bring serious hidden dangers.
Should be processed with Japanese automatic lathes, so that the precision of the parts can be guaranteed to be within +/-0.01MM. Most factories use cutting machines for processing, and accuracy cannot be guaranteed. Secondly, the surface finish processed by the lathe, especially the inner surface finish of the POGOPIN spring thimble needle tube is very critical. Most factories do not have surface roughness testing equipment, that is, there is no parameter to supervise this.
The thickness of the plating layer has a great influence on the cost structure. The gold plating of the high-quality POGOPIN spring thimble is 16U", but most of the products are in 1～2U", which has a big gap. Secondly, the quality of the gold plating in the hole has a great influence on the electrical properties (impedance) and mechanical properties of the PIN.
Poor assembly process can cause serious problems such as skew of the needle, large gap between the height of the needle, pin stuck, and peeling of the nozzle.
