About our Connectors

We are driven to solve interconnection challenges with cost-effective elastomeric connectors to your specifications, which can reduce production costs of your electronic assemblies. Our elastomeric connectors are custom build to be stable, innovative, and cost competitive.

Our commitment:

  • Problem Solving - where traditional connectors don’t exist or fail.
  • Cost Reduction - let it be small quantity or mass production.
  • Ease of installation - Reduced Manufacturing and maintenance costs.
  • Obsolete Connector Alternative.

Elastomeric connectors benefits:

  1. Solder-free connections.
  2. Zero Insertion Force.
  3. High-Density Contacts.
  4. Mixed Signal-Power Contacts.
  5. Low and Stable Resistance.
  6. Superior Performance Under Harsh Environmental Condition (Shocks, Vibration, Temperature etc.)

Z-Axis Europe offers revolutionary elastomeric connectors made of tightly spaced parallel rows of conductive filaments embedded in a silicone core. Our connectors are available in a variety of geometries, enabling introduction in numerous new applications.

Why Silicone Rubber?

  • Does not crack or become soft or brittle.
  • Less compression set.
  • Unaffected by aging.
  • Generates no corrosive chemicals.
  • Does not degrade with UV, radiation, oxygen, ozone or humidity exposure.
  • Flexible to temperatures as low as -55oC.
  • Constant dielectric properties over wide range of temperature and humidity extremes.
