Grounding contact, grounding connectors
Grounding and the dissipation of electric currents play an important role in the electrical engineering field. They ensure that no contact voltages arise in the systems and equipment, that parasitic currents are dissipated and that disruptive electrical couplings are avoided. Grounding is usually performed by means of a permanent screw connection. Recently, however, a plug-in solution has also become available. The heart of such grounding connectors is the grounding contact with ground pin and ground spring as shown here. These can be manufactured in large volumes using Bihler technology – for example on a GRM 80P stamping and bending machine which provides throughput of 100 parts per minute.
Extra-large machining space
The system, which provides an extra-large machining space for the mass production of larger precision stamped and bended parts and assemblies, starts the process by drawing in the strip from the coil. The strip is then cut and the collar drawn. Thread cutting is performed next with the two outer M3 threads and the central M4 thread. The threads are then centerpunched and the entire part is bended, cut and ejected onto the conveyor for OK parts. In addition to the high output volumes, the solution also excels through its particularly short setup times.
