Abstract

The Harsh Environment Protective Rail System illustrated in cross section in the figure was developed to protect printed wiring boards from surface damage due to physical contact with process equipment during printed wiring board manufacturing. Polyimide film 1 is contained in channel 2 of Polyimide Bracket 3. This creates a soft, flexible product contact point 4 that protects the printed wiring board surfaces from damage. The rail system is fastened to process equipment with conventional fasteners at bracket mounting sites 5. The rail system can be used in the following environments: High Temperature Solvents Acids Salt Solutions Molten Solder.

Harsh Environment Protective Rail System

      The Harsh Environment Protective Rail System illustrated in
cross section in the figure was developed to protect printed wiring
boards from surface damage due to physical contact with process
equipment during printed wiring board manufacturing.  Polyimide film
1 is contained in channel 2 of Polyimide Bracket 3.  This creates a
soft, flexible product contact point 4 that protects the printed
wiring board surfaces from damage.  The rail system is fastened to
process equipment with conventional fasteners at bracket mounting
sites 5.  The rail system can be used in the following environments:
  High Temperature
  Solvents
  Acids
  Salt Solutions
  Molten Solder.
