Expansion of the “tape and reel” packing for 2 mm grid female headers
Fischer Elektronik is increasingly expanding the options available for automatically feeding SMD connectors by way of “tape and reel”. The demand for this form of delivery has drastically increased in recent months. The new assembly systems (SIPLACE) are equipped with corresponding facilities for “tape and reel” as a standard. Options for continued component processing from the bar are only available upon request at corresponding extra costs. A further tape has now been installed for the lying female header series BLY 6 SMD ... in a 2 mm grid. From now on, all contact numbers from 2 to 20 are available in this packing form. The contact numbers from 2 to 10 are delivered in a tape with 32 mm tape width. The reels are each filled with 2,400 components. The contact numbers from 11 to 20 are available in a 56 mm wide belt. These reels are filled with 2,200 components. The outer diameter of the reels is 330 mm for both variants. The female headers can be directly sucked in and placed via the insulator. A pick and place pad is not required for this design.
