Abstract

A locating device for transporting pinned substrates uses a centering notch to assist in the accurate placement of substrates. The device is capable of placing substrates in a crowded environment. The locator 1 engages pinned substrate 2 using side rails 3 that support substrate 2 by centering between exterior pin rows 4. The substrate 2 is also located on the locator back rail 5. The locator has a tapered centering notch 6 on both sides of opening to assist in position location on a centering fixture (not shown). A positive stop 7 for the fixture center assists in substrate placement. The locator has a cylindrical handle 8 suitable for use in a robotic application. The device is adaptable for use by turrets, air cylinders, etc.
