The pressure sensitive tape is used as an alternative to heat sealed cover tape. It works usually quite well and is easily applied by the taping machine, but it can create some problems in the tape feeder. In the Surftape, Cal is referring to, the c

I have recently purchased a Tape and reel machine from V-Tech. We are using Presure Sensitive tape and we are not geting good results. Anything bigger that a SOIC14/16 gives us trouble. The cover tape will pull off on the feeder and we will lose part

Hello all, I am looking for a general opinion on splicing tapes. It has always been my opinion that splicing was an after thought for the machines that did not allow feeder removal and replacement during machine operation. If the machine has the ab

Hi Greg, We've used lots of machines over the years & seen lots of different tape related issues - the main one being snap off of the cover tape, usually due to too much glue, over entusiastic heat seal, or a feeder requiring maintainance. Also the

Hi Greg, Remember, splicing isn't just for when components run out - it's also for when you have to pull a part reel from stock, swap it across machines with different feeders, or when the tape snaps. Cheers, Rob.

Hey Greg, As you already pointed out yourself: unless you can do away with covertape pickup-spools (or can figure out a way to empty them without loosing tension on the covertape) your feeders will not be suitable for several consecutive splices. S

Base, You are absolutely correct. This is what I intend to do. In fact, our feeders at one time had reel hangers that would allow for reel removal and thus splicing. Sometimes it is frustrating when people are set in their ways and won't consider

Cheers Greg, It's unusual to have such direct access to manufacturers & their opinions. I'll tell you what really does get us, and splicing doesn't work well on these occaisions - big SMD connectors, requiring deep pocket feeders. You only get m

Hello Rob, We have reel hangers on our feeders as opposed to "buckets". The reels cannot be removed while the feeder is mounted to the machine. Thus splicing is not currently an option. As mentioned above, we felt that it is easier to remove the f

On our machines, the feeder release latch is designed such that the feeder goes offline (machine will not pick from it) before you can actually remove the feeder. This makes it virtually impossible to damage a nozzle or spindle. I'm not sure about
