With more and more printed ink and flex pcb circuits being used in Mil/Aero applications, Nicomatic now offers Micro-Flex. Thanks to our double know-how in both crimp connectors and CMM connector developments, Nicomatic launches an innovative new connector system as well as a flex harness solution aimed at card-to-flex connections.
This new "two in one technology" ensures a high mechanical link and electrical continuity between 2mm pitch CMM micro-connectors and flat conductor Crimpflex technology. One of the major advantages is a small 2mm pitch that allows the reduction of space, but there is also a lower weight feature that enables the replacement of discrete wires and bulky cables still very present in avionics equipment. Nicomatic is able to reduce up to 30% weight through a solution that is thinner and lighter than a traditional cable.
Available in single or double row up to 60
contacts and with latching or stainless fixing hardware ensuring secure
connection under high vibration environments.
Adaptations allow high temperature requirements to
125°C and higher with polyimide insulation. The Microflex technology
is a cost effective solution compared to other cable technologies and
connection systems and offers reliability required for MIL/Aero
applications. Moreover, the assembly process is superior in terms of
crimping and insertion speed.
Compared to crimping one by one of round cables,
the crimping process that Nicomatic has developed is simultaneous for
multiple contacts. The flat cable is crimped in one single operation and
then the housing is assembled separately in one operation. What we
usually see on the market is a contact-by-contact insertion into the
housing, which is a much slower process.
