LED clamping frame

Precision & clean stamping

With the LED technology as basis, the design of head and tail lights form a new possibility to create a car’s specific identity. The small units are assembled from LED elements, PCB’s and plastic housings.

These clamps are used in the newest LED based headlamps in cars. With the clip functionality around the part, a stable mounting to keep the PCB with the LED’s and a plastic housing together is realized. Tight tolerances are combined with demands on surface finish and cleanliness. The parts are assembled under cleanroom condition.

Why KeyTec is succesful in springs

Springs are used in numerous applications and in a lot of different functions, either static or dynamic. The springs we manufacture can be used just for ease of fixation, good dynamic properties (i.e. special attention edges of the springs), combination of spring function and electrical contact etc. As such our springs are used in automotive applications (i.e. LED lights, camera’s,  bezels, EMI shields etc), in medical applications (sensors) and in house and building applications (power distribution, lighting armatures).

KeyTec has extensive know how on the achievable tolerances for these stamped springs in all kinds of different materials. Especially in applications with a dynamic functionality we are able to provide options with specific requirements on part edges. We start with a close cooperation in the engineering phase with DFM and supply of prototypes. We have different ways to make these stamped springs with progression tooling, with Bihler bending machines as well as specific bending machines for really small springs.
