Reflow Pallet hardware

Hi All,

I am looking for a supplier for the hardware used on reflow SMT carrier pallets. I know that there are many vendors who can make the pallets themselves, but where do they get the locator pins or spring clips. I'm not sure if each vendor just has them custom made or not. We have a tool shop in house that could make them but I figured i'd check to see if there was a vendor.

I am specifically looking for the type of spring clips that hold a PCB in a carrier below or even with the surface to allow screen printing.

thanks

Try Pentagon-ems.com (might be right address?) They make their own hardware and i have purched various odds and ends from them before. Ask for Chad Haima.

Send your gerber data to the above mentioned or any other pallet Mfgr. If the assembly is designed with pallets in mind I am sure that one can be designed for your application.

In a time crunch, kapton tape works great. If you are using durostone or some material like that for carriers, make sure it is clean right after you machine it and the kapton will stick very well. We are low volume so we pretty much always use tape to simplify fixture design. Off the subject some but; non-photo reflective durostone is cheaper than reflective and you can simply spray paint a stripe of high temp. white paint where your sensors need to see your carrier. Hope this help a bit!
