Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR HOLDING A PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD
(FR) APPAREIL DE MAINTIEN D'UNE CARTE À CIRCUITS IMPRIMÉS
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for holding a printed circuit board when mounting components thereon, said apparatus comprising a base plate, a mounting means for mounting a printed circuit board spaced from and substantially parallel to the base plate, a plurality of elongate support pins extending through respective holes within the base plate to extend transversely from the base plate, the support pins being independently positionable in height with respect to the base plate to define a configurable support surface for supporting components mounted on the printed circuit board during soldering, wherein the height that each pin extends from the base plate can be adjusted such that the support surface defined by the support pins can correspond to the topography of the circuit board and the components mounted thereon, a locking mechanism being provided for selectively locking the position of each support pin with respect to the base plate, wherein said locking mechanism comprises at least one elongate flexible member arranged to extend around a plurality of said support pins in convolute manner, tensioning means being associated with said at least one flexible member, whereby said tensioning means is adapted to selectively apply tension to said at least one flexible member to grip the pins around which said flexible member extends to lock the position of said pins with respect to the base plate.
(FR) Appareil de maintien d'une carte à circuits imprimés lors du montage de composants sur celle-ci, ledit appareil comportant une plaque de base, un moyen de montage servant à monter une carte à circuits imprimés écartée de et sensiblement parallèle à la plaque de base, une pluralité de broches de soutien allongées s'étendant à travers des trous respectifs à l'intérieur de la plaque de base pour s'étendre transversalement à partir de la plaque de base, les broches de soutien étant positionnables indépendamment en hauteur par rapport à la plaque de base pour définir une surface de soutien configurable servant à soutenir des composants montés sur la carte à circuits imprimés pendant la soudure, la hauteur sur laquelle s'étend chaque broche à partir de la plaque de base pouvant être réglée de telle façon que la surface de soutien définie par les broches de soutien puisse correspondre à la topographie de la carte à circuits et des composants montés sur celle-ci, un mécanisme de blocage étant prévu pour bloquer sélectivement la position de chaque broche de soutien par rapport à la plaque de base, ledit mécanisme de blocage comportant au moins un élément souple allongé disposé de façon à s'étendre autour d'une pluralité desdites broches de soutien de manière sinueuse, un moyen de mise en tension étant associé audit ou auxdits éléments souples, ledit moyen de mise en tension étant conçu pour appliquer sélectivement une tension audit ou auxdits éléments souples afin de serrer les broches autour desquelles s'étend ledit élément souple pour bloquer la position desdites broches par rapport à la plaque de base.
