Abstract (en)

A process for pressing electrical connector cups from sheet metal comprises the steps of cutting from sheet metal a generally cylindrical blank with one end open designed to become the head end of the connector, forming the blank by introduction from said open end of forming members for shaping the blank like a mushroom with part of the mushroom wider towards said open end, and inward deformation of the edge of the open end to provide head ends of the connector for passage with reduced diameter. A coaxial electrical connector comprises a mushroom-shaped external cup provided in accordance with the above process, an intermediate insulating layer (30) in the cup and a metallic central member (31) providing the central electrical contact. <IMAGE>
