Assembly Machine for Printed Circuit Boards

The high-speed assembly machine forms and inserts components and cuts off and clinches the leads to a printed circuit board. It has split forming and inserting tools and split cutoff and clinch anvils. One set of forming and inserting tools and cutoff and clinch anvils A is mounted on the frame of the machine and is not moveable.

The other set of forming and inserting tools and cutoff and clinch anvils B is mounted on slideable rods and can be moved to accommodate different size components. Centering tool C is geared to the moveable set of tools and remains centered between the forming and inserting tools regardless of the size of the component. The centering tool maintains the component against the board while the leads are cut off and clinched to the printed circuit board D.
