Was wondering if anyone has a general chart matching SMT package size with tape feeder size. E.g 0602: 8mm Tape 2mm pitch. Cheers.

You might want to check out the empty feeder tape supplier websites. If you have a part they want to make sure it's easy to find the right tape size so you can buy it from them.

Oddly enough, I find it more often than not that the supply type is not mentioned in the data sheets. And if the original author was saying 0603 in a metric package, then it would be in 8x2 tape. Even in the US, some companies use the metric names

Hi, most common parts were mentioned already. For all the rest you will have the simple counting we all do. Distanse between two holes in the tape is 4mm. You dont need special software for that. packages for passive parts you will learn fast.

Actually 0603 is 8mm x 4mm pitch. 0201 and 0402 are 8mm x 2mm pitch. 0603, 0805, 1206, 1210 are 8mm x 4mm pitch. Tant Caps 3216 & 3528 packages are 8mm X 4mm pitch. 6032 and 7343 are 12mm X 8mm pitch. ICs, Diodes, Transistors are various sizes and d

Maybe..... ...but it's not like I was wrong. I was only trying to help. And I certainly didn't belittle him in any way shape or form. So why do have to get all up in my Biz-nass about it? Huh? You wanna go? Let's go! Go ahead...make your move...I've

Does anyone know of a handy dandy reference guide showing what the standard feeder tape size is for most common SMD packages? Just trying to figure out what the capacity REALLY is of all these pick and place machines I'm looking at, that state capaci

Genny, you may want to look at the brds you will be running and identify the various packages. I do not know what a standard package is. Most chip resistor and capacitors, 0402, 0603, 1206, 1210's are on 8mm feeders, but ic's vary quite a bit. Also r

chips up to 1411 ( I have not seen a 1411 component yet, but 1210 is a good number ) in 8 mm, IC up to SO8 in 12 mm, IC up to SOL 20 fit in 16mm tape. This is just a basic rule. You may also find SO 20 in 24 mm tape. More important is the reel width,

Because most placement machine mfgs' feeders vary in width sizes its best to get the reference from them. Like how many 8mm slots does their 16mm consume, and so forth. Std. Sizes I've seen are: 8mm, 12mm, 16mm, 24mm, 32mm, 44mm, 56mm, 72mm, 88mm, 10
