Abstract

The figures illustrate a device which applies an evenly distributed force when applying pressure in an assembly operation. The device is self-leveling and compensates for any misalignment between parts under assembly and a tool performing the assembly.

Self-Leveling Pressure Pad

       The figures illustrate a device which applies an evenly
distributed force when applying pressure in an assembly operation.
The device is self-leveling and compensates for any misalignment
between parts under assembly and a tool performing the assembly.

      In Fig. 1, inside rollers 5 provide axis points which permit an
assembly, comprising parts 1 and 2, to tilt right to left.  Outside
rollers allow part 1 to move independently of part 2, front to back.
Fig. 2 shows a top view of the device.  This combination of pivot
points and plates permits the assembly to tilt at any angle.
