Axial VCD/SEQ Clinch Tooling (6241F), Axial Single/Dual Head 8 Clinch Tooling

Only “standard” continuity tooling is offered, this tooling handles 5mm through maximum insertion span

Tooling may be adjusted to yield 45 through 90 degree clinch angles

Radial 8 Head Tooling

The Radial 8 is equipped with 13.0 mm (max component body diameter) head tooling as a standard feature.

The Radial 5 offered two types of head tooling, 10.5mm and 13.0mm.  Since the 13.0mm tooling can handle larger components and the only drawback is a very small footprint increase of 0.33mm (0.013”), the 10.5 mm tooling was dropped as a standard offering on the Radial 8.  This change has simplified the ordering and manufacturing processes.

 

Radial 8 Clinch tooling

Three different styles of clinch tooling are offered to address the highly varied requirements of our customers.

Tooling Pro Con Comments
“N” 90 degree short Short finished clinch length works well for high density applications Hole diameter versus wire diameter must be properly controlled to yield a tight clinch N 90 degree long and N 90 degree short account for over 90% of machines sold.
“N” 90 degree long Tight clinch is possible even when using large hole diameters Higher chance of solder bridging or other density issues Both N style clinches have very few adjustments
“T” style Lead length may be adjusted to suit customer/product More adjustments than either “N” style clinch PC boards are usually designed to use either N or T style tooling exclusively.
