Abstract

Proposed is a pin scorotron that utilizes snap type fasteners, enabling vertical assembly of the major components by robotic machinery. As shown in the Figure, scorotron 2 includes a dual pin array electrode 4 mounted between an insulating central support member 6 and an insulating shield/clamp 7 having a plurality of apertures 8 which engage a plurality of lugs 9 located on support member 6 which snap together. Control grid 10 is subsequently mounted in tension to the central support member 6 between the grid contact 12 and the grid plunger 15 and spring 16.

VERTICAL ASSEMBLY PIN SCOROTRON (Cont'd)

Proposed is a pin scorotron that utilizes snap type fasteners, enabling vertical assembly of the major components by robotic machinery. As shown in the Figure, scorotron 2 includes a dual pin array electrode 4 mounted between an insulating central support member 6 and an insulating shield/clamp 7 having a plurality of apertures 8 which engage a plurality of lugs 9 located on support member 6 which snap together. Control grid 10 is subsequently mounted in tension to the central support member 6 between the grid contact 12 and the grid plunger 15 and spring 16.

The elimination of fasteners and molded-in inserts on the proposed scorotron makes component members capable of being easily recycled and refurbished.
