Multilayer Ceramic Process and Equipment Trays

Various tray designs are illustrated for use in various stages of manufacturing process and equipment of multilayer ceramic products. Tray materials are color coded for product type identification and are compatible to withstand process environments such as cleaning, temperature and equipment handling.

Tray No. 1 includes taper lugs 14 that are used for centralizing of product equipment heads as they are used to load and unload product sheets within the tray.

Tray No. 2 includes locating pads 15 that are used to centralize and orient the tray, during tray load and unload operations from equipment handlers to various process equipments

Tray No. 3 includes gripper projections 17 that are used for machine or manual gripping of the trays and are adapted for locking the trays within parent storage magazines.

Ledge 18 on tray no. 2 is adapted to interlock with the outer wall 19 of tray no. 4, for example, when the stacking of trays is required.

Laminate trays 4, 5, 6 and 7 are designed to hold various types of products utilized during lamination and processing of multilayer ceramic products.

Tags 24 on all the trays provide man- and electronic-readable coding for inventory and equipment control.
