Nicomatic Micro-Flex

Nicomatic Micro-flex

A very innovative new solution for Mil Aero Applications.

With more and more printed ink and flex pcb circuits being used in Mil/Aero applications, Nicomatic now offers Micro-Flex.


Thanks to their double know-how in both crimp connectors and CMM 2mm microconnector developments, Nicomatic has produced an innovative new connector/flex harness solution aimed at card-to-flex connections.

This new "two in one technology" ensures a high mechanical link and electrical continuity between 2mm pitch CMM micro-connectors and flat conductor Crimpflex technology (£A per crimp contact) and to MIL type relability standards.

One of the major advantages is a small 2mm pitch that allows the reduction of space, but there is also a lower weight feature that enables replacement of  the discrete wires and bulky cables still very present in avionics equipment. Nicomatic is able to reduce up to 30% weight with a solution that is thinner, lighter and more cost effective than a traditional cable.

Contact Arrangement
Blue Bullet From 04 to 60 contacts                                


Nicomatic Micro-flex 2This system is available in single or double rows of up to 60 contacts and with latching or stainless fixing hardware to ensure secure connection under high vibration environments.

Specialised polymide insulation tape materials can handle high temperature requirements to 125°C and above. The Microflex technology is a cost effective solution compared to other cable technologies and connection systems and offers the reliability required for MIL/Aero applications. Moreover, the assembly process is superior in terms of crimping and insertion speed.

Compared to crimping individual round wires, the crimping process that Nicomatic has developed is simultaneous for multiple contacts. The flat cable is crimped in one single operation and then the housing is assembled seperately. This beats the normal 'poke home' contact-by-contact insertion into the housing, which is a much slower process.
