Swiss company HUBER+SUHNER has taken a significant step towards environmental sustainability by introducing lead-free connectors in its electronic connection technology. These connectors maintain the same electrical performance as traditional ones and are now available through the company’s distribution network.
With a strong presence in interconnect technology, particularly in communications, defense, aviation, and industrial applications, HUBER+SUHNER’s lead-free connectors are designed to meet the same high standards as their conventional counterparts. The company’s engineers have ensured that the mechanical properties, including mating forces, remain at a consistently high level.
Lead, commonly added to alloys for improved machinability, carries environmental and health risks. HUBER+SUHNER’s decision to go lead-free aligns with existing European regulations, reflecting its commitment to sustainability, health, and safety. By staying ahead of changing regulations, the company aims to provide reliable and sustainable solutions to industries relying on high-performance electronic components.
