I am currently having a problem with uncut legs on one side of axial components from a universal dual head insertion machine. Initially it was thought that the anvil on one side was engaging slow so I stripped down and changed the seals in the botto

Jeff, You assume too much. Not all VCD's had clinch in sensors. Darron did not tell us what vintage this machine is so what habsfan said could be the problem. We need more information to help. Does the machine stop when it doesn't cut the lead? D

If you are going to wavesolder the board after SMT you will have to epoxy the parts on instead of paste/reflow. I used to work for a company that squeeged it on. You will have to research component layout guidelines if you do want to wavesolder. If

Thanks for all of the informations guys, after spending some time rechecking the set ups and checking for worn components in case there was something i missed, i then took some time whilst an operator ran the machine to watch. Whilst doing this i no
