How to Implement Splicing in Your SMT Factory | Increasing Productivity, Efficiency and Costs

Aug 08, 2017 | By utilizing the advantageous methods of tape splicing with splicing tools to join component reels together, you reduce the need to reload feeders. In addition, leader tape extenders add extra length to a part reel reducing the waste of components, thus saving costs, materials, and time. Splicing shouldn't only be considered when components run out - tape splicing should also be considered when you have to pull a part reel from stock, swap it across machines with different feeders, or when the tape snaps.
