At GCT we’re excited to be our expanding our board to board connector 3D model offering. Customers told us they would like instantly downloadable models, so in response we designed a system to post models online for IGES, STEP and Parasolid files, this allows customers to download a representative selection of models and request the exact full GCT part numbers as necessary.
The board to board range has many possible part number iterations, take for example a thru-hole stacking header, there are selectable options on mating pin, solder pin and stacking dimension pin lengths, sometimes there are choices of multiple insulators, the combinations of options means many thousands of combinations, as such it’s impractical to have all model variations online. We post a sample of models online, which allows customers to view and get a feel for the dimensional characteristics of parts, but for the exact requirement we offer a request system, where models get delivered in maximum two working days. Once requests are validated by our sales teams then our technical product group based at Welwyn Garden City, UK produce the models.
Note when requesting models plating and packaging information isn’t required as these features don’t impact on the model.
At present the board to board connector product range encompasses the following pitch spacing – 0.80 mm x 1.00 mm, 1.00 mm, 1.27 mm, 2.00 mm & 2.54 mm.
If you have suggestions on how we may improve our 3D model service,then please get in touch, I’d be very interested to hear from you. Call +00 44 (0)7917 391765 or email email@example.com
