PCB Fixturing Solutions brought to you by SP Precision

May 1, 2002

Kill two birds with one stone!

Here is a simple idea that may be able to save you some money somewhere down
the road. This customer had two PCB's that were very similar in terms of PCB
geometry. Both had LED's and small switches that needed to be held down to
keep them from floating through wave solder. But as you can see in the
photo, the PCB on the right has about twice as many of those components as
the PCB on the left. This situation was easily addressed by creating one
fixture base to process both PCB's, and providing interchangable top hats to
deal with the differences in component location and density. 
This is a great way to lower and distribute your tooling costs between
similar boards. Maybe it is an idea you can put to future use. Until next
time, happy assembly!
