Machine No. 6869
This machine automatically cuts off and stitches five contact pins from a double carrier strip, inserts them into a plastic connector housing, pulls the five contact pins home to a preset depth and cuts off the tails to a specific length. The loaded connectors are then fed out of the machine, tested for missing pins, and automatically placed on a pressure sensitive tape, which automatically is wound on a spool with paper between the subsequent layers.
INSERTION HEAD – An integral die set which cuts the contact from the carrier, in which, guides and controls it, untill loaded in the insulator. A trap door can be easily opened with a thumb screw, for ease of cleaning and service.PART CONFIGURATION – Each type of header requiring cutting can be handled by the machine including headers made out of “endless” extrusions.
When a connector is cut, material is actually removed, making the cut connectors stackable.
CUTTING SAWS – Standard saw blades used, commercially available.
CONTROLS – Ties in to main Assembly Machine or has individual control box. Cutting speed and feed controlled separately.
CYCLE RATE – On demand, automatic or adjustable to automatic Assembly Machine speed. Up to 1000 cycles per hour Cycle rate determined by tooth load, speeds and feeds.
NUMBER OF CUTS – Up to 50 cuts per single machine cycle, 5 inch total length insulator standard.
DISCHARGE – Automatic positive header sections removal, separated discharge for limited numbers of different cut lengths possible.
SPECIAL FEATURE – Headers not fully loaded with contacts can be cut to any combination with the empty tail end discharged separately.
