PIN INSERTION

Pininsert 2100 is a pneumatic or servo-drive table-mount machine for semi-automatic pin insertion into various electrical components. It was designed as stand-alone or inline machine for small and medium production volumes (up to 3 600 pins per hour).

Components are located on the manually-adjustable working table. Operator moves it to the work zone where pins are inserted one at a time in automatic (option), step-by-step and manual operation modes. Table can be motorized on demand.

Interchangeable insertion head makes it possible to produce various applications on one machine.

Camera and laser control assures correct positioning of the components and pin.

STANDART FEATURES

Insertion head
Insertion head, pneumatic or servo motor, comprises of tool set, which could be changed to another one according to the application.

There are several types of insertion heads according to the pin types: end-to-end, right angle, U-band (bandolier) or terminals.

Insertion accuracy is highly stable and equals ±0.05 mm (CPK > 1.68). When using servomotor, insertion depth is controlled by encoder.

Insertion technique involves the use of precut round or square wire with acceptable section from 0.3 to 1.5 mm (with servo-drive head) or 1 mm (with pneumatic head).

Indexation system
The pin is fixed in the insertion head one step before cutting position, which decreases the tolerance of pin length and thus provides cutting and insertion precision.

Pins unreeling systems
There are various pin feeding systems according to each pin type: end-to-end pins floor-mount unreeler, carrier pins unreeler for bandolier pins, terminal unreeler.

Options

Frame & cabinet

Machine and all its components can be integrated into floor mount frame with PLC and HMI units for operation control.

Lighting & safety beams

Safety beams can be installed on the frame to detect foreign object presence and to stop the machine. This feature as well as work area lighting guarantees operator’s safety.

Vibrating feeder for connectors

Option for in-bulk connectors feeding. A bulk supply hopper automatically doses parts into the vibratory bowl and inline vibrating conveyor.

Alignment supports for components

Work table can be equipped with alignment supports. Components are mount onto this support to simplify its positioning.

Automatic motorized positioning

Pininsert 2100 could be equipped with motorized table. In this case its movement to the work area (X axis) and/or from one insertion position to another (Y axis) is performed automatically with a step motor.

Components position laser control

Components position laser control detects wrong positioning, sends an error message on the screen and doesn’t let the machine work till the component is placed correctly.

Low/high definition camera

Camera with integrated logics for pin insertion height control. Choice of definition depends on the dimensions of the components.

Pin presence laser control

Pin presence laser control lets the machine differ empty slots and already inserted pins. New pins are inserted into the empty slots only and other positions are skipped.

Insertion force control

System controls each insertion and compares it to the reference values of insertion force. In case of deviation machine stops automatically or gives an alarm sound.

Force data export to Excel

System allows to download all the insertion data in Excel format.

Poka Yoke

Parts indicated by laser or insertion force sensor as defective are to be thrown into special container. Until these parts are detected inside of the container, the machine wouldn’t continue operation.

Barcode reader

Pininsert 2200 is a CNC floor-mount machine for semi-automatic pin insertion. It was designed for high production volumes: up to 8 000 pins per hour with a single insertion head and up to 15 000 pins with a double head.

Supervised by PC and having fully programmable insertion height, Pininsert 2200 can be integrated into a production line or operated as a stand-alone unit.

Pininsert 2200 can be optionally equipped either with universal clamps for PCB or with Y table and adapting fixtures for plastic connectors.

STANDART FEATURES

Pins unreeling systems
There are various pin feeding systems according to each pin type: end-to-end pins floor-mount unreeler, carrier pins unreeler for bandolier pins, terminal unreeler.

Universal table for PCB
400×400 mm universal table includes movable clamps to fix PCB plates of various dimensions and 10/20 mm stroke anvil to support PCB at insertion point. Thanks to it there is no need to change fixture when changing to new application.

Y table for plastic connectors
Y table allows to load special removable fixture for plastic connectors. Fixtures have centering finger for correct positioning and can be equipped with alignment supports that will fix each connector.

Using two fixtures speeds up the process: while one is operated, operator loads the components to the second one.

Electrical insertion head
Electrical insertion head is fully interchangeable which simplifies change to the new application. There are several types of insertion heads according to the pin types: end-to-end, right angle, U-band (bandolier) or terminals. Insertion accuracy is highly stable and equals ±0.05 mm (CPK > 1.68).

Insertion depth is controlled by encoder and can be programmed to one-hundredth of a millimeter in the PC editor whereas equipment of other brands should be mechanically set. Thus there is no need in mechanical adjustment for each new series.

Insertion technique involves the use of precut round or square wire with acceptable section from 0.3 to 1.5 mm (with servo-drive head) or 1 mm (with pneumatic head).

Indexation system
The pin is fixed in the insertion head one step before cutting position, which decreases the tolerance of pin length and thus provides cutting and insertion precision.

Pininsert 2500 was designed to be integrated into existing connector assembly machine: PCB or another connector is prepared by the main conveyor and pin manipulations are performed by Pininsert 2500.

Up to 4 pin line unreeling & feeding systems
Up to 4 pin wire bobbins could be installed on the unreeler – according to the quantity of pins in one final product item. Bobbin diameter is 800 mm, capacity – 200 000 pins.
Pin wire is unreeled with motorized unreeler and lead in rows (up to 4) through brass tubes to the bending station.

4 pin line bending systems
The device cuts the pin line, pre-bends the pins by 90°, arranges them in 4 rows (one pin in a row), completes the bending of the pins’ ends and transfers them to the insertion unit.

Insertion system
Insertion unit is equipped with 2 digitally controlled axis and anvil, which are powered by a brushless servo motors. All insertion points data is visualized on the screen. Mechanical gripper operated by a pneumatic air cylinder positions up to 4 pins from the bending station to the second electrical component.

Options
