Many manufacturers of motors, solenoids, coils and other assemblies continue to use traditional, manual soldering techniques for magnet wire connections in their products. This can be costly, both in terms of the time required to make these manual connections, and in terms of quality, given that such processes are difficult to control and may result in poor connections.

TE Connectivity (TE) offers alternative solutions for terminating magnet wire, whether it is copper, aluminum or a combination of both. The terminals and splices are supported with application tooling ranging from hand insertion tools up to customer specific machines. High speed, fully automated, integrated systems provide uniform terminations reliably at a very low applied cost. No pre-stripping, soldering or welding of magnet wire is required.

MAG-MATE terminals and SIAMEZE terminals utilize insulation displacement connection technology, while AMPLIVAR terminals and splices utilize compression crimp technology.
