Miniature Contact Secondary Precision Head Turning Machine
This machine automatically feeds contact pins out of a feeder bowl into an escapement and pick and place system, which places the contact pin on a high-speed rotary collet. The collet, which was in a specific orientated position to pick up the square tail of the contact, starts and speeds up to a 10,000 RPM rotation at which moment the three cutting heads come in to make five different cuts on the head of the part. The collet will then slow down, brake and stop, oriented again, ready to pick up the next part. The finished contact pin is blown out of the collet into a container.
