CHAD PATENTED PIE 3-D COMPLIANT END EFFECTOR
PROVIDES UNLIMITED PART HANDLING FLEXIBILITY
FOR THE ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY

January '00, ORANGE, CA - The CHAD 3-D compliant PIE handles virtually any type of component, including axials, radials, header strip, DIPs, SIPs, connectors, transformers, relays, TO-220s, displays, LEDs, surface mounts, small circuit boards, PGAs . . . without the need for tool changes! Mimicking the flexibility of the human hand, the intelligence of the PIE's unique floating 3-D head allows body gripping while compensating for variations in the body to lead relationship. The PIE virtually eliminates the need for assembly sequence requirements common to the use of dedicated grippers and costly vision systems for most odd-form assembly applications. Providing maximum flexibility, the PIE is interchangeable on all CHAD electronics assembly systems.

Known for setting industry standards in odd-form electronics assembly, CHAD has once again made its mark in the electronics assembly industry by offering the most technologically advanced automation product available.
