Depending on what kinds of machines you run and feeder style, self adhering leaders work well to minimize the need for a long leader. We use them on every reel. We can generally load most feeders with only waste of about 4 parts by use of leaders (

Leader Tape for SMT components

Is there someone who can tell me where I can buy rolls of leader tape for SMT component tapes. Is there a good way of bonding leader tapes, maybe a special instrument to do the job. Thanks for any help.

We use a Hoover Davis Tape and Splicer. We buy rolls of blank cover tape and cut leaders as long as we need them. www.hooverdavis.com

They work okay, better than no leader tape. Of course to attach you may throw a couple of parts away as well. What you really need to do is discontinue buying strips.

It is a very simple practice to leave a leader when breaking down a setup. This way the next time you're going to use the reel there is about a foot of cover tape to use. Seems to work in our SMT production area. Max.

"Why dont you guy look at the world leader in solder recovery" Why don't "you guy" try some punctuation? Why don't you provide some data to support your claims of "world leader" in a technical forum? You could be the world leader in bull$h!t and I
