AGI 's Press Fit Tooling can be manufactured from either 6061 Aluminum plate or G-10. All that’s required to manufacture the tooling is your Gerber file and back side connector part heights if applicable. In 24-36 hours, we will ship your tooling. The plate thickness is based upon back side connector heights. Minimum thickness is ½”.
Our design techniques are based upon sound processing practices. We drill each hole to be approximately .005” - .010" greater in diameter than the barrel I.D. This ensures that the annular ring is supported and cannot be damaged. We also design proper support around the connector to ensure no damage to the PCB occurs. Back side SMD’s and components are pocketed for clearance. The tooling includes (2) tooling pins for locating the PCB in place.

Features and Benefits

  • Engraved identification numbers and other information required for efficient location and positioning of the PCB.
  • Prevents cracking of the PCB and components during the pressfit operation.
  • Dedicated tooling reduces defects and damage caused by operator error.
  • Each annular ring is supported to prevent any damage.
  • All that's required to manufacture the tooling is your gerber file.
  • Provides proper PCB support and prevent stress that can damage adjacent components during the press fit operation.
  • Holes drilled .007" diameter larger than the ID of the hole to provide annular ring support.
  • (2) tooling pins ensure the PCB is located properly.
  • Manufactured from G-10 or 6061 Aluminum plate. In either ½”, ¾” or 1” thickness.
