Disassembly top cover of a 30pin connector | 28 January, 2004

First of all, sorry for my bad english (I'm german)!!!

We have the following problem: we assemble 6pcs. smd 30pin connectors on one of our boards that we produce. These connectors have a top cover, that the pick&place machine can put it on the board. After the reflow process the top cover has to be disassembled. I have an offer for automatic disassembly, but has anybody an idea, how we can do it in an easier way (automatic or manually)?

Martin, may I ask what your offer is? Does the pick and place machine vendor provide you with a special nozzle, which would not require the peel off cover. Custom nozzles from the OEM are quite expensive, because they implement engineering and test. Therefore the OEM gives you some warranty, that the placement head doesn�t crash with the feeder table or the board conveyor. If the machine warranty is already expired and the OEM considers a special nozzle and you got permission from your boss to try it out, then I would use a standard nozzle and have it modified with some features, that the vacuum can pick the connector without loosing it. If you are using a machine from the largest German supplier and if you would send me a drawing of the connector, I may be able to assist you. www.steering-inc.com
