CAP 6T Servo Electric Press

Improve Quality, Lower Rework and Prevent Rejects

The CAP 6T and CAPI 6T (inline configuration) are designed to apply compliant pin connectors to a wide range of PCBs and can handle demanding applications from daughter cards to midplanes to back-planes. These machines offer proven force control capabilities and simplified processing for improved quality and reject prevention. Focused at all but the largest board applications, they hold up to 12 insertion tools and use 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—such as PCB holes out of tolerance (too big or small), missing connectors and bent pins—the cycle is stopped immediately to prevent damage to the PCB and allow for the minimum amount of re-work.
