PPM's new Cut Tape Feeder

PPM has released a new "Cut TapeFeeder" for working with less than a reel of components. Manufactures are now able to pick from short sections of taped components.

The feeder is leader less, manually indexed, latches into the feeders bases of the Quad Q Series machines & C Series machines. The cut tape feeders are available in 8mm paper, 8mm plastic, 12mm, & 16mm.

PPM's New 8x2mm 0201 Feeder

The standard 8mm fat feeder, by itself, cannot index a 2mm pitch on smaller components. PPM offers a new 8mm feeder with 2mm indexing and improved indexing and repeatability that reduces or eliminates mispicks. The feeder is interchangeable with all Quad model pick & place machines. The feeder will no longer index two components
at a time.
