Resistor Lead Forming Tool Design Print E-mail

Two OpenSCAD source files for designing a resistor lead forming tool. Bends resistor and diode leads uniformly and consistently. Files come in the following styles:

  • Metric: lead spacings in increments of 2mm; imperial: lead spacings in increments of 0.05".
  • Narrow: for small resistors with bodies no longer than 6.75mm (0.25"); wide: for medium resistors with bodies no longer than 10.50mm (0.40")
  • Long: a long tool with lead spacings up to 40mm (1.5"); short: a shorter tool with lead spacings up to 30mm (1.0").


Files are fully parameterized, making it easy to change the increments, dimensions, spacings, widths, etc. of the tools by editing the files and re-rendering the tool.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
