Pin Straightener

Pins on a module are straightened to be parallel and lie in one plane.

Modules, such as resistor/capacitor packs or other rectangular types with in- line pins, are fed one at a time between a comb and die. As the comb and die are moved together by air cylinders, hydraulic cylinders, solenoids, mechanical linkages, etc., the comb separates the pins by specified distances. The die then forces all the pins against back-stops in a single plane.
