This electronic chip production tooling module includes a bayonet mount with over-center latch. It provides quick change-over while maintaining precision referencing of product to the tooling. The machine interface includes electrical and fluid connections with coded flagging for automatic tool identification and monitoring. A specially designed actuation system supports high speed tool motion while limiting accelerations on delicate electronic components and avoiding part ejection.

Magnet dispenser/feeder

This device is designed to dispense high strength magnets used in the assembly of OEM automotive components. The Dispenser reliably separates individual magnets from a stack and presents them for ready access by the machine operator. The design virtually eliminates jamming and misfeeds common to the hardware it was designed to replace. A locking magazine supports material tracking and control requirements.
