Electronics Industry

ADAPT Automation supplies the connector, contact, and pin insertion industry with proven machine technology for fast and efficient production without damaging the coatings or bending the leads. Feeding product via bandolier, tubes, or feeder bowls, ADAPT Automation uses techniques that suit your application.

Case Van Mechelen started his company building pin and contact insertion machines that handle them in bandolier form. Special cam actuated stitching devices were designed and built for high speed insertion into contact blocks, 50 at a time, without damaging or scaring the contacts. This led to banding the contact blocks to the flat wire looms for the infant computer industry when all components were coupled together with looms.
