3D Parts TERMINATOR! Zierick Surface Mount Terminals


We’re pretty sure that once scientists get the opportunity to reverse engineer our first Terminator robot, most likely a Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 (the Arnold one), they’ll find a couple of these babies inside. They just need to invent time travel so one can visit us from the future!

I just hope that when the machines become “self-aware” that I don’t get attacked by my toaster for poking it with a butter knife!

For the PARTsolutions PART of the Week, we’re excited to show off this #1286 – Surface Mount Insulation Piercing Crimp Terminal from Zierick’s newly released 3D parts catalog.

These unique connectors were developed as a way to quickly and easily connect wires to a circuit board while using the smallest footprint possible. Now available as a CAD download from the new Zierick 3D parts catalog, these can quickly be integrated into CAD designs in more than 150 native formats.

You can say “Hasta-la-vista” to the days of redrawing components for your CAD design.
