Tools and Presses


Xmultiple has tool and press manufacturers we recommend to our customers for use in their contract manufacturers or customer's facility for press fit connector assemblies. These approved manufactures have a wide variety of press fit tools which are required for the different Xmultiple connector series. The presses include simple lever presses to the hydro pneumatic presses.

For assembly of RJ45 press fit connectors a flexible and reliable press is recommended which is manufactured by well-known tool and press manufacturers of this type of equipment. These companies have presses for the small, mid and high volume sized production needs. These presses are available with different controls, such as a simple step control, a PLC control, or a PC control. The press in force can be monitored on a display. Listed below are some of the recommended presses for RJ45 press fit connectors.

In most cases Press Fit RJ connectors can be assembled to the printed circuit board manually. Manual, hydraulic- and pneumatic-powered presses are used for RJ45 press fit connector assembly. However for more fine control of forces and distances Servo-Electric press have more computer control however their cost is much higher.

Servo-Electric presses are controlled by PCs and they have been developed for highly controlled installation of press-fit connectors with pin counts over 10 pins. In these presses an electric servomotor drives a ball screw to provide the pressing force.

Servo systems are designed for precision control of speed and position. Servo-Electric presses can be semiautomatic or fully automatic and are controlled by a personal computer. Please call us for a recommended press or tool for your application and production level.
