WORLD acquired a new piece of equipment, a Syneo Press Fit machine, to improve its press fit connector capabilities. It is a semi-automated machine which should provide consistent results as well as alert us to problems such as bent pin and incorrect hole size issues. Specifications include:
- 400% more press-force resolution.
- True press position measurement using a Z-axis linear encoder.
- Improved rigidity in the Press-Head structure.
- Zero Gap Press Head. Other designs have a dead-zone (gap between press head and structure support) which must be compensated for in the press profile through software. This can provide problems with very small connector applications.
