There was something I think was called stitch bond.  Wire 
that looked very much like
wire-wrap wire, but probably had thinned insulation was 
ultrasonically bonded to
flat posts on the board.  I have some military-grade gear 
with flat pack chips that
used this much like one would make wire-wrap cards.  But, 
they were very compact
and hardly thicker than a standard PC board.

Then, there was the system that came before wire-wrap.  It 
had rectangular
posts on card edge connectors, and I think the wire was 
stranded. There was
a "gun" that had a roll of little tin-plated clips.  You 
stuck the wire into the
gun, and squeezed the handle.  It drove a clip onto the pin, 
pinching the
wire through the insulation.  I've forgotten the name of 
this system, too.
This was used for connecting up standard logic boards into a 
not for use at the chip level.
