I looking for some information about Lead cutting and forming equipments. In specific PPM information abour Tape feeding vs bowl feeding. For TO-92 components. Actually we have a tape feeding system and we have like 15000 PPM's, and we measuared the position of the components vs the tape's guiding holes and this comes around 0.7mm max. The information that we looking for will give us and Idea if changing from tape to bulk will be consider as a PPM reduce factor or not.

Contact John Sprovieri at "Assembly Magazine" [ ]. He wrote an article on lead forming that appeared in the August 2003 issue.
