Universal Flux Clean Fixtures for the Auto Tool

      Disclosed is a fixture which holds integrated circuit modules
for cleaning, regardless of product size.

                            (Image Omitted)

      The fixture uses angular dividers in a tray to trap each row in
place by the top edge of the product.  The tray 1 is made from sheet
steel, and is bent to provide a channel for the angled divider to
slide.  The tray also has a 60 degree angle at the bottom to trap the
first row of product. The product (P) is placed into the fixture on
its pins and seated up against the angle at the end of the tray.  The
dividers 2 have walls at a 60 degree angle and are placed between
each row of product, thereby, trapping each row. The number of rows
and quantity of product and dividers in the fixture is determined by
product size.  A leaf spring 3 is used to hold the dividers and
product in the tray.  Once loaded, the trays can be placed in the
cleaning tool vertically to allow the product to be submerged into
several dip tanks in the cleaning process.  The trays and dividers
also have holes provided for the drainage of chemicals.
