Abstract

The figure illustrates a disk transfer tool adapter. This tool is placed over an open shipping container with side 1 resting on the shipping container. The process cassette is placed on the opposite side 2 of the disk transfer adapter tool. When the assembly is rotated 180 degrees, the alternating grooves 3 allow 15 disks to pass through the tool into the process cassette at the required 1/2 inch spacing. All incoming parts in the shipping containers are spaced at 1/4 inch. The other alternating grooves 4 hold the other 15 parts in the shipping container.

Disk Transfer Adapter Tool

The figure illustrates a disk transfer tool adapter. This tool is placed over an open shipping container with side 1 resting on the shipping container. The process cassette is placed on the opposite side 2 of the disk transfer adapter tool. When the assembly is rotated 180 degrees, the alternating grooves 3 allow 15 disks to pass through the tool into the process cassette at the required 1/2 inch spacing. All incoming parts in the shipping containers are spaced at 1/4 inch. The other alternating grooves 4 hold the other 15 parts in the shipping container.

The disk transfer tool adapter is then removed from the process cassette, and the remaining assembly is rotated 180 degrees. The tool is lifted, rotated 180 degrees, and placed on the shipping container. The remaining 15 disks are aligned with grooves 3 that allow the parts to pass through to the process cassette.
