CAP/CAPI 6T Servo Electric Presses
These presses offer proven force control capabilities and quality assurance in an automatic press. With greater control and simplified processing, the result is improved quality and reject prevention.
The CAP 6T and the equivalent CAPI 6T (inline configuration) are fully capable of handling the most demanding applications today and is focused at all but the largest board applications and can also hold up to 12 insertion tools and uses a lower support fixture. The key attributes of the CAP/CAPI 6T are to precisely and accurately apply each connector to the pre-programmed force, height, and speed requirements. Each parameter can be individually programmed for each connector. Connectors can be pressed to height or force based upon their individual specifications. If an error is encountered, the cycle is stopped immediately to prevent damage to the PCB and allow for the minimum amount of re-work. This allows the CAP 6T and CAPI 6T to detect problems and avoid damage to the PCB due to common errors such as PCB holes out of tolerance (too big or too small), missing connectors, and bent pins.
The CAP 6T was designed to apply compliant pin connectors to a wide range of PCBs. It is fully capable of handling the most demanding applications today from daughter cards to midplanes to back-planes.

The CAP-6T can be upgraded with an automatic transport system used to increase throughput capabilities. Once a press sequence has completed, the machine will unload the PCB, load the next one into pressing area, and gently descend the PCB onto the press fixture. The In-Line CAP-6T can also be configured in shuttle model using an additional bi-directional buffer. In that case, the operator place the PCB to be pressed on the outside buffer, press the start button, which will start the press process. The machine will then load the PCB onto the fixture, execute the press sequence, and upon completion will return the PCB on the outside buffer allowing a more comfortable handling of large PCB.
