Tooling Solutions for SMT Process

~ Shape Memory Tooling VacuNest

Board Support Tooling is critical within any printer, dispenser and pick and place machine to run a repeatable process. A custom dedicated machined tooling plate is the ideal solution but you must plan well ahead, have the plate designed and then manufactured, even then it's only a custom fit for that version of the board.
