GCell Multipin Press Fit

Force-Distance controlled pressing of multi-pin connectors to PCB

The Gcell unit provides Force-Distance-controlled pressing of multi-pin connectors. The Gcell is designed in such a way that the charged force works symetrically to join the connector and PCB. Four robust multi-bearings ensure a uniform application of the forces until the actual force is equal to the theoretical value.

The Gcell is semi-automated with manual loading/unloading of a built-in drawer. A data-matrix code is easy to read either on top or bottom of the PCB. Due to the "POKA YOKE" principle (fail-saving system), the upper and lower press tools for the new connectors and PCB configurations can be exchanged within minutes by the system user.
