Automated through hole insertion

The modular inserters usually have them built into the feeders, which is part of why each feeder is so expensive. I'm sure I saw one system with a separate clinch unit but they are all dog slow compared to a rad 5 or 8 or 6241D+.

Universal Radial 8

We have a RAD5 and RAD 8, both of which have the Expanded Range Verifier. Has anyone had success verifying the correct value of electrolytic caps? Our machine stops several times a day for a false failure, and Universal isn't much help. Thanks John

Universal RAD 5 Tooling Breaking

Electronics Forum | Thu Sep 09 11:57:22 EDT 2004 | John S

We've recently gone through a spell with a Radial 5 where various pieces of the head tooling would break. We even found a piece broken inside of the wax seal straight from Universal. To keep it running, our techs put on tooling from a Radial 2 and

Universal RAD 5 Tooling Breaking

We had the same problems a few years back. We complained and they came back with the excuse that the supplier of the parts had made a bad batch. They sent us a new part in exchange of the broken one. When faced with premature breakage of parts that a

Steve, all the worn carrier clips (chipped, spring less or damages, etc.)have been changed for working ones. Alignment has been performed to loser and afterward thighter tolerances than the manual recommend to see if it changes anything (no). I check

Unfortunately, I don't get the Jig but the component is always the same LED. I measured a sample of those and they are consistent from the tape and after the leads being cut. About 1-2% of the component from the tape are already bent so I'm still foc

I am currently placing LED's with a RAD 5 machine and developed cutting problems with a specific LED. I am not having problems with other similiar LED's where only the color is different. After dispensing to the clip all is well. After going through

That's a great point about air consumption, don't reduce the 1/2 inch air line requirement, meet the CFM air requirement and of course dry shop air. Check the Auto oiler for the CTA is running correctly, 5W 30 NON Detergent oil only. Attached is a pi

UIC still manufacturers new thru-hole machines. Both axial and radial insertion models are available. They stopped making the multi-mod dip inserters in '91 or '92. And parts are easily acquired for any older models, there were a ton of machines out

I forget which type of CTA that machine has so I probably won't be much help. It's been ages since I worked on them but it doesn't look like you'll find many people that have. That said, usually if you get things aligned properly and it still bends
