Customized electrical terminals designed to integrate with overmolded medical devices are said to be more reliable and easier to assemble. The terminals are supplied on reels or loose for use with various automation systems. Produced in sizes from 0.008 to 0.090 in. thick with ±0.002-in. tolerances, they can provide better strain and flex relief, simplify assembly, and cut costs. The terminals were developed using rapid prototyping with 3-D solid-modeling analysis and can be produced from medical-grade alloys including titanium, platinum, stainless, and copper alloys. They can also be inlaid or edgelaid with precious metals to achieve special properties such as increased wear or conductivity.
