PCB Magazines Series 100 / 180 / 300
can be filled when standing vertical or laying horizontal

There is a system behind it


The cab PCB magazines can be filled when standing vertical or laying horizontal. The system is totally adjustable for width and can be assembled according to your individual requirements. For different size PCBs we offer PCB magazines with a height of 100, 180 and 300 mm.

All magazines have 32 slots, each with a 10 mm clearance between them, thereby providing maximum use of available space.


The precision molded slots are funnel shaped at each end to simplify the insertion of each circuit board. The location of each mounting slot is shown by yellow and white positioning strips. These enable boards to be loaded while avoiding the risk of being loaded by hand in the wrong position.

Magazines Series 100 / 180 / 300 - Details

Fast and easy assembly

Fast and easy assembly

The magazine walls can be secured to the profiled rails in any position required. Two identically sized circuit boards are inserted between the walls, into the adjustment slots at the extreme ends of each wall. The second wall is then pressed firmly onto the boards and screwed tight.

Rigid and stable

Rigid and stable

The magazine walls are constructed in sandwich form, and are therefore particularly rigid. For heavy mechanical and thermical force the magazine walls can additionally be reinforced by the use of a steel rod.

Slot lock

Slot lock

To prevent damage to the PCB board during insertion, we offer slot locks which cover slots not in use.



At the corners of each magazine are male and female connectors which allow the racks to be stacked upon another. The lower edge of each magazine- side has a molded recess which allows the magazine to be gripped and lifted without problem.

Vertical mounting

Vertical mounting

Before soldering, the circuit board must be stored horizontally. The magazine can therefore stand vertically.


Transport containers

For transport purposes, the PCB magazines can be loaded into containers. These containers have norm sizes of 600 x 400 and 400 x 300 mm. Retractable handles enable the magazines to be removed with ease.

Flexing of the magazine walls under loading

When the PCB Magazine is correctly assembled, each side wall may flex less than 1,0 mm to ensure a secure mounting of the PCB. The flexing was calculated using 16 circuit boards, with a clearance of 20 mm between each other and a weight per board of 500 g.

Critical loading can occur as follows:

  1. When the magazine is laid on its side on a flat surface, and then lifted.
  2. When being transported in the vertical position, and the position is changed to the horizontal.
