  • Föhrenbach Application Tooling developed a full range of connector assembly machines.
    The concept of the machine starts from a basic assembly platform and the selection of the contact stitch heads. The platform depends on the requested machine output, level of automation and connector type. The contact stitch heads are integrated on this platform.
    connector assembly Different types of standard stitch heads are available, the type depends of the contact type and machine output. It is possible to have different stitch heads on one production line. Single contact and gang insertion are possible.

    Connector examples

    Lots of connectors types are possible: single or multiple row, male or female, fixed or variable pitch, selective insertion,...

    Single head semi-automatic

      Semi-automatic connector assembly line   The operator loads the machine with empty connector housings, the insertion head automatically inserts the contacts into the connector body. Once the connector is finished, the operator removes the finished connector. Depending on the applied connector type, the machine can be equipped with different insertion heads and connector holders.

    Multiple head semi-automatic

    Semi-automatic with multiple heads   This machine type is the same as the ‘Single Head Semi-Automatic Assembly Station’. In this machine concept, a turn table or a conveyor system is passing the connector holders by the different stations. Each station can be equipped with an insertion head or a test unit. As a result, this machine can complete during each cycle a complete multiple row / mixed contact type connector.

    Full automatic production line

    Full automatic assembly line
    Turn table based set-up
      Connector feeding, contact insertion, accessory mounting, printing, testing and packing can be automated.
    This are highly dedicated assembly machines for high volume production.

    Lots of different test are possible: electrical tests (short circuit, continuity, high voltage,...) and optical (true positioning, co-planarity, body colour,...).
    At the end of the line the connectors can be packed in tube, tray or tape-on-reel.
