TWI - twisted wire interconnector - 3D interconnection technology

TWI-2200 Automatic Insertion Machine

TWI-2200 Automatic Insertion Machine 
U.S. Patent Pending

The TWI-2200 is an automatic insertion machine designed for use with Twisted Wire Interconnects [TWI]. The TWI-2200 is loaded with TWI’s and the target media such as a PCB or MCM stack. The TWI-2200 then picks a TWI, and automatically places, inserts, and seats it into the appropriate via. The leader is then trimmed and removed. The process repeats as required.
