Mascot Standalone Clinch WorkstationElectronics Assembly
Mascot Standalone Clinch workstation in ESD Anti-Static paint with ergonomic workbench and two carousels. Turnkey solution for use in cellular production requiring components to be secured to the PCB before soldering.
Once the component has been placed by the operator an automated mechanism underneath the PCB will ‘clinch’ the component legs in either a North, East, South or West direction. The finished lead profile can be also be set to either an angle or flat to the board.
As the operator is placing the components the Mascot Clinch mechanism underneath the PCB ‘follows’ the Mascot laser to each component location. As the component is placed the clinch mechanism bends over each leg of the component. Once the clinch function has been performed, the laser, parts dispensing systems and clinch mechanism moves to the next component location and the process repeats. A variety of component types are able to be clinched such as axial components, resistors and capacitors as well as ICs.
