Abstract

Disclosed is the fabrication of circuit card workholders from a high temperature, high strength plastic material, known in the plastics industry as liquid crystal polymer. The principal advantage of this material is that it can withstand the harsh environment of the circuit card soldering operation, and is not wettable by liquid solder. A further advantage is that it can be injection molded in a single piece combining the base pallet, card supports, and locator bushings, all of which are individual pieces in present aluminum workholders.
