The terminal seen in the picture was manufactured for automotive steering position sensors from a 0.0238” thick phosphor bronze material.

In addition to designing and building the terminals, Keats Manufacturing Co. also packaged this product in special packaging and delivered to the client’s location in Europe. One million terminals were manufactured with our precision stamping services. These terminals were plated with bright tin for high corrosion resistance. The reel to reel plating process we performed ensured uniform deposition of tin and significant cost savings to the customer.
