The latest addition to its range of advanced tooling technologies. HD Grid-Lok is a new, high-density tooling solution designed to support the entire PCB assembly and drive enhanced productivity without the need for manual intervention.
Taking Grid-Lok proven technology to the next generation, HD Grid-Lok�s newly introduced 12 mm pin pitch can be set up in seconds to provide complete and flexible board support. Activated at the touch of a button, this breakthrough tooling fixture completely eliminates set up overheads, requiring minimal intervention from the line operator and eliminating the delay associated with dedicated tooling fixture configuration.
The flexibility of this automatic tooling system is ideal for high changeover manufacturing environments, delivering effortless integration at the product changeover stage to eliminate the potential for human error. Based on a modular foundation philosophy, HD Grid-Lok conforms to any given board profile to deliver cost-effective manufacturing on demand. For all subsequent boards, the system can be reset in seconds to meet diverse assembly requirements.
The new system easily conforms to individual substrate topographies, with pins automatically locked into position to emulate a custom-tooling plate on even the most densely populated boards.
