Slideways Design Eliminates Rejects on Assembly Machine

The Challenge: The existing part could not maintain a necessary flatness. The warped part damaged leads on the electronic components, which caused boards to be rejected. Static buildup on the part also created rejects.

The Slideways Solution: Using our knowledge of the application and properties of UHMW, we designed a new part comprised of an aluminum base and an anti-static UHMW chain guide. The base is mechanically fastened to the chain guide, giving the UHMW the stability it needs to allow proper setting of each electronic component in the grippers and final installation in the circuit board.
