At ODU, we develop customized solutions based on our vast pool of know‐how and expertise. Our decisive advantage? Every single step of the production and development process takes place in‐house. From consulting to final inspection, we ensure that our connections meet the customer’s requirements in every respect – no matter how challenging and customized they may be.
A prerequisite of reliable contact technology is that the required contact properties are combined in an optimum manner. These include the contact resistance, contact safety and mating cycles. ODU’s strength lies in optimizing these features in accordance with the specific requirements of our projects – by drawing on our vast experience and strong development and manufacturing expertise in the field of contact technology.
State‐of‐the‐art test procedures ensure maximum reliability even under the most challenging conditions:
By developing products and creating reliable simulation forecasts at the same time, we can quickly design a solution that is cost‐effective for you.
In addition to metal processing, our range of manufacturing options also includes a wide variety of plastic processing methods, numerous electroplating and chemical coating processes, as well as our in‐house mold and tool shop.
With 75% in‐house manufacturing, we can implement changes flexibly and quickly during product development. Lastly, our state‐of‐the‐art equipment ensures a high throughput and maximum cost efficiency in series production.
The contact obtains its specific electrical and mechanical properties (contact resistance, wear resistance, etc.) from the application‐specific surface coating. As a leading supplier of high‐quality coating systems, we integrate surface engineering aspects into all development and production steps from the outset.
Barrel, vibrobot, rack, or conveyor systems are used for coating procedures – these are selected according to the specific product requirements.
All preliminary products come together during assembly: the finished contacts, insulators, housing parts and many other components. To ensure economical production for our customers, we place particular emphasis on efficiency and quality in our assembly processes.
Our proprietary, fully automated assembly machines are tailored to the end product and thus ensure cost‐optimized solutions in series production.
The termination area of a contact is often underestimated in terms of its impact on the performance and functionality of the overall connector system. Just like the contact area itself, it must guarantee constant transmission – even under extreme conditions. ODU offers advice and support when it comes to selecting and combining suitable connection technologies, and offers various joining processes such as:
