CAP 6T Servo Electric Press

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.
