Abstract

The tool is a cutoff and bend tool for use when a terminal replacement assembly is inserted into a circuit board. It prepares the tail of the terminal 3 by forming a pad that is wired into a net circuit. The tool is lowered to the board. After hammer 15 hits the board, the carriage 5 continues downward, camming anvil 18 into position. The downward motion of the carriage continues until stop 17 hits lock nuts 20 on cutter 14 and drives the cutter 14 into the tail, pre-bending the tail and cutting it off against anvil 18. The carriage 5 is then retracted and the spring 10 causes cutter 14 to continue forward after anvil 18 is released to the open position, allowing the tail to bend flush with the board and 90Πto the terminal's body.

Cutoff and Bend Tool

The tool is a cutoff and bend tool for use when a terminal replacement assembly is inserted into a circuit board. It prepares the tail of the terminal 3 by forming a pad that is wired into a net circuit. The tool is lowered to the board. After hammer 15 hits the board, the carriage 5 continues downward, camming anvil 18 into position. The downward motion of the carriage continues until stop 17 hits lock nuts 20 on cutter 14 and drives the cutter 14 into the tail, pre-bending the tail and cutting it off against anvil 18. The carriage 5 is then retracted and the spring 10 causes cutter 14 to continue forward after anvil 18 is released to the open position, allowing the tail to bend flush with the board and 90OE to the terminal's body. Further, retraction of carriage 5 causes stop 19 to contact lock nuts 11 and retract cutter 14 to a lock position where follower 13 is positioned in a slot in the body of the cutter 14.
