Irvine, Calif. Bivar Inc. has launched a new line of card guides, PC-board ejectors and handles, all manufactured in compliance with the European Union's Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Restriction of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directives calling for lead-free materials and processes. Applications for the new products include the latest PC-board packaging technologies in telecommunications, computer peripherals, plant system enclosures, as well as test and medical diagnostic instruments and equipment.
The new lines of snap-in and vertical, standard-mount card guides include the ECON-O-GIDE and STAT-O-GIDE snap-in card guides, COMP-O-GIDE industry compatible card guides, CIRC-O-GIDE circular card guides, TEMP-O-GIDE flame retardant card guides, and GRIP-O-GIDE deep channel card guides.

Delivering up to 31 styles, the company also offers a lead-free VERT-O-GIDE, a dual-channel vertical guide for 1/16-in. PC-boards. This vertical guide saves significant space, while also offering a packaging sub-system that saves up to 25% in guide use when used in tandem board installations.
The new lead-free line also includes the CARD-O-PULL PC-board ejectors, inserter/extractors, PC-board handles and CUT-OUT-COVER connector cut-out covers to complete the full offering of precision molded products.
