wave soldering a board with wires | 30 April, 2020

I currently have a board that has several wires that need to be soldered into it. Many years ago I remember wave soldering power supply boards that also had many wires. In order to keep the wire insulation out of the solder fillet and keep the wires in the board during wave solder we crimped a terminal on to one end of the wire. This terminal had a tab on it and when it was inserted into the through hole it had enough force / friction to hold the wire in place. I cannot remember who made these or what they were called. If anyone has any idea what they are or where I can get them I would appreciate a response.

Thank you
