UNIVERSAL SYSTEM ONE-SIDED

Gullwing Trim & Form for Low Volume/High Mix

A family of ONE-SIDED universal SMT lead form and trim systems for processing two- and four- sided Flat packs and Quad packs into a gull wing configuration.
Two models are available that process one side of a package per press stroke for high mix, low-volume production and R&D requirements.
Please note the standard tools have set limits for body size and dimensions.
Fancort can modify these as needed to meet your applications and components dimensions.
Please, also, note all universal tools bend at 90º and will give you a range of 80-90º of spring back. If you want different angles or Omega bends, dedicated tools are a better choice.
Higher quality forming or increased production requirements can be met with our two-sided Flex System that process two sides of a package per press stroke, offered with optional mechanical loading and unloading

F-1B/1: ADJUSTABLE ONE-SIDED LEAD FORMING SYSTEM

F-1B/1

Our basic adjustable one-sided SMT Lead Forming system. This tool allows adjustment of most dimensions on an SMT form, but the foot will be fixed. This unit is an excellent entry level machine perfect for short to high quality production runs.

There are three standard versions of this system. Custom systems will be quoted as requested.

F-1B/1 a standard tool that can handle parts up to 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" with a body thickness maximum of .150 above and below the forming lines.

F-1B/1/SP a special tool that can handle parts up to 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" with a body thickness maximum of .350 above and below the forming lines.

F-1B/1T a special tool that can handle parts up to 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" with a body thickness maximum of .400 above and below the forming lines to handle thick packages. Special customized versions of this tool can sometimes handle .500 above the forming lines.

F1B/1-4 a large tool that can handle parts up to 4" x 4" with a body thickness maximum of .150 above and below the forming lines.
