Abstract

The present invention proposes using tubular essary to attach the support plate to the machine magnetic solenoids, in conjunction with actuator base. When the solenoids are de-energized, the pins between the support plates and the machine plate can easily be removed. The process also pro- base. The actuator pins are permanently attached to vides feedback as to whether or not the actuator pins each support plate; thus removal is not necessary. have reached the appropriate depth/location. If the The pins slide into the tubular magnetic solenoids pins are not properly situated, the system will alert when energized thereby, providing the support nec- the operator to make an appropriate change.

  Since this process does not require tools, and face mount technology) operations such as the there are no removable pieces that can be lost, screen print process effect other processes such as stripped or otherwise damaged, it is much more cost the automatic chip placement processes, the overall effective. Also, because it requires much less opera- quality output for SMT lines is improved. As a tor involvement than the previous process, it is result of the im...
