Abstract

The figure illustrates a disk transfer tool adapter. This tool is placed over an open shipping container with side 1 resting on the shipping container. The process cassette is placed on the opposite side 2 of the disk transfer adapter tool. When the assembly is rotated 180 degrees, the alternating grooves 3 allow 15 disks to pass through the tool into the process cassette at the required 1/2 inch spacing. All incoming parts in the shipping containers are spaced at 1/4 inch. The other alternating grooves 4 hold the other 15 parts in the shipping container.
