FOUNDATION

Founded in Berlin by Otto Dunkel

1937

Invention of the springwire contact

Otto Dunkel has one of his best flashes of genius while observing a man sweeping away leaves with a twig broom. That very moment is nothing less than the springwire contact’s hour of birth. Inspired by the individual twigs of the broom, Dunkel turns the contact into lines, in other words into individual springs.

The result: constant contact resistance and steady application pressure contact. This enables a weak point in communication systems – the unreliable connector – to be overcome.
