Hi Adam, Good question. I know I am seeking a lot of details. Here's the deal. Five years ago I acquired the assets of Contact Systems. Since then I have been re-manufacturing the CS-400E machine which if you are not familiar with is a light guid

I am in the process of programming my first PCB on the CS-400E machine and am having problems. I am too impatient to wait for the manuals on order so I thought I might see if someone out there might have some suggestions. I have done some research o

Hi Dave, The short answer is "it doesn't". The mascot is simply a light guided assembly system. The major difference is the CS-400E machine has the fully programmable cut and clinch unit doing it's thing under the board while it is being assembled.

Bob has been very helpful so far. He was very reasonable on the price for the manual too. I think I'll have this thing in production by Monday Morning! So far I've replaced the 5V Power Supply, re-aligned the X and Y, and re-laminated the table to
