Solder Cup Connectors and Terminal Pins

Mill-Max has long offered a wide range of products with solder cup features, including discrete receptacles, terminal pins, and spring-loaded pins, as well as standard 0.100" pitch headers, sockets, and spring-loaded connectors. This product line expands with the introduction of the 0.050" and 2 mm pitch header connector configurations with straight and right-angle solder tail options; 0.050" pitch sockets; 0.050" pitch spring-loaded connectors; and 0.100" pitch low profile headers.

Mill-Max solder cup components simplify the task of making wired connections between PCBs or devices and PCBs. They provide an appliance designed to accept and hold wires in place, eliminating the frustration of trying to manipulate them while performing the soldering operation. The solder cup also allows the solder to pool and form around the wire, leading to better solder joints and more reliable, robust connections. Mill-Max's manufacturing techniques and equipment produce solder cup features for 2 mm and 0.050" pitch connectors, right angle and low-profile interconnects, and integration into fine pitch spring-loaded connectors.
