ELO pin for capacitors


ELO pin for capacitors

Press-fit technology has also made headway with traditional products. The benefits of the ELO pin are realised for smaller quantities too. We are using the ELO pin for the very first time in capacitor manufacturing for northern German company FTCap. The benefits of solderless press-fit technology have also been proven for specific applications in the area of circuit board assembly.

The special shape of the press-fit pins and the high material requirements as well as the overall service delivered by Vogt were fundamental for FTCap. Customised packaging as well as the advice provided by our technicians during the development phase were key to the product's success.

FTCap (also known as "Fischer und Tausche") has been producing capacitors in Husum since 1948 and has remained loyal to its location. The capacitor division has fallen under the ownership of Leclanché since 2004, which produces capacitors in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland. The product ranges complement each other and both the production quality requirements as well as the innovative strength fit well with the FTCap philosophy. The capacitors are either "Made in Germany" or "Swiss made"! This conscious choice of location guarantees high quality standards and a wealth of ideas for solving difficult installation situations.

Just like Vogt AG, FTCap relies predominantly upon customised products that are tailored to the specific needs of the customer. For more than 60 years the employees have focused exclusively upon the development and manufacturing of capacitors and are ideally positioned to deal with the increasing challenges within the market.
