|Fully automated presentation of Zierick headers at rates up to 1 header/second
Zierick Manufacturing Corporation, a leading provider of PCB connectors and assembly equipment, introduces a new microprocessor-controlled feeder for automated feeding of headers. Designed to mount on various flex cell placement systems with mechanical or vacuum adapter, this new feeder can accommodate pin lengths from 1/4 to 1 in 1/8 increments.
Feeder capacity is 24 of the header strips. New strips can be loaded on therear of the feeder at any time as long as there is room for the strip. At the pick point, the lead header is separated from the strip and presented for pickup. Sensors on the cylinders provide feedback to the microprocessor for control purposes. LEDs on the microprocessor PCB provide the status of all sensors.
Maximum feeder size is 27 long, 3.4 wide at the rear of the feeder, and 2.85 wide at the feeder mounting area. Height is 8 overall (for 1/2 pin length headers) although height in the feeder slot area varies by placement machine model.
