Abstract : The patent describes an apparatus for inserting terminals into a logic plate having a grid of apertures to enclose the terminals including a screen adjacent the lower side of the plate to prevent the terminals from falling through the plate. The plate and screen are supported on a frame that is connected to a means for vibrating the frame. A means is connected beneath the screen for causing a greater atmospheric pressure above the plate than below it. As the frame is rapidly vibrated with sufficient amplitude to cause the terminals to stand on their ends, a vacuum means is applied beneath the plate to assist in drawing the terminals into the apertures.
