Important Electrical Components Manufactured with Precision Metal Stamping in Minneapolis, MN

November 9th, 2015 · 1 Comment

It might sound hard to believe, but Thomas Engineering Company has been producing high-quality precision components for the electronics industry sine 1962! To keep up with the rapidly changing world of electronic technology, we’ve maintained high quality equipment, state of the art production methods, and top-of-the-line engineers. Today, we remain industry leaders in electronic connector component production with our capabilities in thin-slotting and precision metal stamping in Minneapolis, MN.

We specialize in stamping parts for electronic connectors and other close-tolerance components. Some of these parts are key in producing each of these major types of electrical connecters needed to join and adapt between circuits, terminals, wires, or cables.

Terminal blocks, boards, or strips are used to connect individual wires without physically joining the ends. These connectors often join together items in one enclosure and are flexible enough to work with an expansive scope of wire sizes and terminal counts. We provide parts of terminal block connecters that range from the largest to the smallest sizes.

Posts and banana connectors are basic forms of electrical connectors that are often used in audio and test equipment. These simple connectors bind bare wires to a post that can then be connected to an adaptor or power source.

Insulation displacement connectors work even if the wires connected are still covered in insulation. Removing insulation is time consuming, but these connectors can be rapidly assembled, bypassing the need for insulation stripping by slicing directly through to the conductor in a single stroke.

Plug and socket connectors are some of the most well-known connectors outside electrician and engineer general knowledge. These connectors use a male and female plug to bind two conductors together. Common examples include VGA and USB plugs, headphone jacks, and common household appliance electrical plugs.

Blade, ring, and spade connectors work in similar ways to connect a differently-shaped section connector to a receptacle. Blade connectors connect into the receptacle with a flat or crimped conductive blade. Ring and spade connectors conduct with an attached bolt or screw.

These are some of the most common and simply-categorized kinds of electronic connectors. Our production lines make the small parts that help complete the different types of connectors.
