Abstract

In drawing A vibratory feeder bowl 1 is used to feed particularly oriented transistor chips having contactor balls to a work station. The transistor chips move from the center 2 of bowl 1 onto a plurality of tracks 3. The transistor chips are held on tracks 3 by their contactor balls 5. Drawing B shows the integration section where the transistor chips are integrated into a single track from the plurality of tracks 3. When there is no room for a transistor chip to be integrated from a first track into a second track such as in the case of transistor chip 6, the chip falls to the outside. A fall is through feed-through hole 9 and then back to center 2 of bowl 1. In other cases the integration is successful such as the integration of transistor chips 7 and 8 into the lowest row.

Vibratory Feeder Bowl for Transistor Chip Integration

In drawing A vibratory feeder bowl 1 is used to feed particularly oriented transistor chips having contactor balls to a work station. The transistor chips move from the center 2 of bowl 1 onto a plurality of tracks 3. The transistor chips are held on tracks 3 by their contactor balls 5. Drawing B shows the integration section where the transistor chips are integrated into a single track from the plurality of tracks 3. When there is no room for a transistor chip to be integrated from a first track into a second track such as in the case of transistor chip 6, the chip falls to the outside. A fall is through feed-through hole 9 and then back to center 2 of bowl 1. In other cases the integration is successful such as the integration of transistor chips 7 and 8 into the lowest row. The output of the integration section is a line of transistor chips hanging on ledge 4 by their contactor balls 5.
