Abstract

A swedging head assembly that simultaneously forms a double standoff on a pin of a pluggable electronic apparatus is shown in drawing A. The stand offs, shown in drawing C, are formed by forcing opposed jaw insert dies 2A together, drawing B. The dies are driven by a set of four eccentric gears acting through a series of pads, linkage plates and slide plates. The width of the standoff is controlled by using interchangeable eccentric pads 4 of varying size, drawing A, over the eccentric gear shafts. The pins are maintained at constant length during swaging by using spring-loaded punches at both ends. In operation, drive gear 5, drawing A, meshing with secondary drive gear 6, simultaneously revolves four planetary eccentric gears 3, whose shaft 7 acting through slidable pads 4, force insert dies 2A together.
