Flat pack leadforming

Flat pack leadforming | 19 November, 1998

I have a requirement to reform the legs on flat pack devices (en-masse) due to materials handling problems. I am aware of the pitfalls in reworking any IC in this way however I have no choice in the matter. I have found one suitable machine on the web: Leadstar 800 conditioning system which is well out of my budget. Does anybody know of any cheaper alternatives or companies that may provide this service.

Thanks in advance
