I know for a fact that VCD stands for Venture Capital Device. A VCD is a device for providing legitimacy to speculative investments, government grants or funding. Importantly it must appear to be complex and require much research to provide the proof of concept proto type (which won't work), thus allowing the maximum amount of funds to be sequestered...

AI usually stands for Artificial Intelligence, examples of AI are found in those govermnment departments which approve funding for VCD's...

The full name of the machine is Universal VCD-Sequencer5. This is an Auto Insertion machine which known in short as AI machine. This machine primary function is to insert PTH (Part Through Hole) components into PCB (Printed Circuit Board).

Universal is the machine manufacturer company.

Wonderful acronyms - PTH (Part Through Hole) !!! You haven't said what VCD stands for. How do you measure (or even define) insertion quality?

I bet the originator of that word would never have guessed the follow-on play! Some things just fall into place.

Something like this

Your best bet is a specialised circuit board manufacturing forum, perhaps the following

VCD is Variable Center Distance

The machine can change to the spacing of the pc board.(.500,.600 etc.) and insert, cut & clinch the leads.

Haven't worked on them for 20+ years but spent a lot of time training at the factory in N.Y.

Whats the problem?

Re: Universal VCD AI Machine

I have 1 unsolve problem with the insertion. After the part insertion, cut & clinch; there was a dented mark at the component lead bend area (lead shoulder). This mark caused by the driver tip. We tried some adjustment in program and the dented mark was reduce. However the mark still visible slightly. Is there any way we can eliminate this problem. I heard that this mark is normal for Auto Insert. Is that statement true?

Thank you for your help and advise.

Jetsonraj,

Yes, some marking of the lead is normal due to the softness of the leads (copper & tin) As long as there is no exposed copper and dent is minimal there should be no problem. IPC will have min. distortion specs. Polishing the driver tips may help a little. Remember even on semi auto lead formers there are tool marks.

Thank you for the advise. Appreciate for the information given. Do you also have experiences with Locater CS400 ultra cut&clinch machine?
