Yamaichi is primarily known as manufacturer of a wide variety of connectors and test contactors. The extensive product portfolio also includes board-to-cable connections, such as the Y-Lock system or products such as the non-ZIF connector series HF601 or the high-speed series HF513.
The cable side to be used - i.e. a flexible flat cable (FFC) - has already been purchased. In order to be able to respond even better to special customer requirements and to be able to offer a complete system of connectors and cables, Yamaichi has decided to introduce its own FFC series, the Y-FFC.
The location of the in-house FFC production is the Yamaichi production in Frankfurt (Oder), where up to now e.g. cable assemblies or test contactors, as well as the industrial circular connectors Y-Circ are manufactured.
Yamaichi has invested in state-of-the-art lamination lines, as well as punching and folding machines. FFC's for Yamaichi connectors or other applications can now be manufactured in Frankfurt (Oder).
Yamaichi can respond to a wide variety of requirements such as pitch, number of lines, lengths, surfaces, plug faces or folds. Special customer requests such as shielding or punching holes or slots in the FFC are also possible. Intensive and automatic optical process monitoring ensures compliance with tolerances.
The advantage of Yamaichi as a system supplier is that a customer-specific design is supported right from the design and development phase, which is then tested in the validation phase according to customer specification.
This means there are no limits to fulfilling customer requests.
