Abstract
An automatic ejection devices was devised to insure that sticking, due to shrinkage of the encapsulation alloy around mold surfaces, would not interrupt a continuous flow of parts through the process. Also, a series of manual operations required in the process were automated, eliminating the need for human intervention with the exception of staging the blades at the start of a run.
