Abstract

The cover clip-up tool accurately locates cover to base, ensures excellent cover-to-base sealing, uniform cover deflection and assembly time reduction. Cover with seal 1 is positioned and located in cover locater 2 by three locating pins 3 (Fig. 1). Cover is held in cover locater by vacuum. (Image Omitted) Disk Enclosure (DE) assembly 4, which includes completed file, is positioned onto two locating pins 5 and three mounting pins 6 (Fig. 2). Cover locater 2 is lowered to DE assembly 4. Vacuum is turned off, and cover locater 2 is returned to the up position. The cover is now accurately located to DE assembly 4 (Fig. 3). Cover clips 7 are positioned to cover 1. Cover clip-up arms 8 are activated by air cylinders (Fig. 2).
