SMAINTECH,

Good Morning, We have installed the Gridlock tooling pin with stealth mode on our DEK's. It is a hard tooling pin array that resets the height if the pin for every board. The pin comes up until it comes into contact with something then locks at that position. Some people on the forum have mixed opinions about them. This system does have some problems using warped boards but we have had pretty good luck with them all in all.

Good Luck

CL

We had the same problem with our E5. I had the shop make us a template for each two-sided board out of some 1/16" acrylic. The template had cutouts in it to drop the pins through where the bottom side parts weren't. Seemed to work fairly well, no complaints from the operators.

we do a similar thing but make the template from paper, we just print out an image from the gerbers (to size) showing both sides in different colours, we set this down on the table (had to work out first where the correct position was) then we place the pins on top of the paper. from this you can see where the parts on the underside of the board will be, helps greatly with the set-up

Good morning,

I am not a sales representative, unfortunately. Ask Novatec the quote.

There is a quick change dedicated tooling solution.

It involves a "h-tower" and a machined vacuum (or non-vacuum) plate.

There are two 8mm threaded holes on the table that are there for support tooling interface. The tower or tooling bolts to those.

On a machine that has a tower, the tool swap out time is les than a minute.
