econopin-gdmA division of Gerhard Designing & Manufacturing, Inc., ECONOPIN is the acknowledged leader in developing and manufacturing bulk wire pin insertion equipment and technology.

The single step ECONOPIN process starts with a reel of bulk or roll stock wire material, and ends with an inexpensive, uniform, highly reliable pinned assembly, ready for further processing. Our equipment is in service at many of the leading industrial and consumer electronics manufacturers around the world.

Each application for an ECONOPIN insertion system represents a custom "design and build" project. The result is a well designed, well built, functional system that meets your needs and produces a quality product economically.

There are two basic, but distinctly different concepts of pin insertion systems that comprise the heart of the ECONOPIN product line.

ECONOPIN 5500 "Sheared Pin" System

econopin-bobbinsThis is a machine that cuts and places a simple, square ended type of pin from bulk wire material. This pin has limited retention characteristics but is ideal for multiple pin applications, such as bobbins, coil bases, etc. for either blind holes or through holes with subsequent forming or bending of the pins. Production yields of up to 3,000 parts per hour are attainable.

Our engineering department is always available for consultation on your existing application or in the development of new products.
