ETCO Incorporated Launches New Flat-Snap Connector Product Micro-Site

ETCO Incorporated, a manufacturer of connectors and wire termination products for automotive, medical and appliance industries has announced the launch of its new Flat-Snap micro-site. The Flat-Snap micro-site will serve as an information center for the patented connector product. Manufacturers can now log on to the micro-site to view how the Flat-Snap product works and download datasheets on current implementations.

ETCO’s patented Flat-Snap wire termination connector is an industry leading solution. It is currently being used in a multitude of manufacturing applications primarily in the appliance industry. Some of the uses include wire termination on heating elements found in dishwashers and electric ranges as well as electric range eye connectors. ETCO wants to show that this type of product can be used in nearly any type of appliance connector application.

Engineered with manufacturing operation safety and simple end user repair access, the flat-snap connector consists of two ears that lock into place once applied to a male connecting unit. Manufacturing line workers and automated systems simply snap the connector into place and pull slightly to ensure the connection is tight. Once in place, it is nearly impossible to move or shift it off the main male unit. The connector is comparable to the faston terminal series of connectors currently available on the market and comes in a variety of metals including brass, tinned brass and a high temperature copper alloy for the aforementioned appliance heating assemblies.

ETCO’s Director of Marketing, Sam Francois states, “This Flat-Snap micro-site is in response to the overwhelming industry interest to ETCO’s Flat-Snap product.” He continues, “Visitors can use the site to download pdf datasheets and get current manufacturing quotes for the Flat-Snap product.” ETCO is initially making the new line of Flat-Snap products available to a limited number of manufacturers and plans to rollout variations of the product for custom manufacturing applications.
