Custom Applications : Custom Lead Forming Applications

Below are two examples of custom applications that illustrate Fancort capabilities.

We have many more in our 47-year history of designing and building surface-mount lead forming equipment.

DEDICATED PROGRESSIVE TOOLS FOR PACKAGES ON LEAD FRAMES

Fancort latest innovation , adjustable, interchangeable individual tools for low to medium volume progressive de dam and de-junk releasing and forming SMT and thru hole ICs from lead frames .

For the longest time, the only way to remove and process these ICs were in very expensive and long lead time progressive tooling . Fancort have a totally new concept , individual tools that work as a set and achieve the same result. Yes, the biggest advantage is that the tools and be adjusted and or reconfigured for future ICs possibly only change 2 of the step one and step two tools..

Progressive Systems for Packages on Lead Frames

Fancort will design and build progressive tools to process any type of plastic, metal or ceramic package that is produced on a lead frame. The tools are compatible with manual or semi-automatic feeding depending on your budget and production requirements. Progressive trim and form tools, depending on the design, normally consist of from three to five punch and die stations that might incorporate the following operations:

  • Dejunk of plastic between leads
  • Removal of dam bars between leads
  • Cutting of tie bars to set lead length
  • Final forming to footprint specifications
  • Singulation of finished device

 

Tooling holes in the lead frame are used for location by the operator to hand feed from one position to the next. Estimated throughput is 200-400 parts per hour depending on the number of stations used to produce a finished part.
