Manual Conditioner

The benchtop Dana MLCS-1, with a footprint of 10 x 10 in., can recondition packages with 0.5-mm pitch (.020-in.) in less than 90 seconds, restoring lead pitch, sweep, standoff and coplanarity per Jedec standards. The part is clamped into a holding nest and the operator moves a gearshift-like lever through short guided strokes to process the component one side at a time. The leads are oscillated left and right, and then they are combed, while up and down movement simultaneously occurs to correct coplanarity and standoff. Six built-in micrometers set the body size and other measurements, and a .75-in. thick tooled steel base plate maintains stability. Parts with varying pitches are accommodated by changing combs.
