Keeping It Reel
Newark InOne, a small-quantity distributor of electronic components and test equipment in North America, announced that its warehouse in South Carolina now automatically re-reels cut tape orders for surface mount passive components, for any length 18 inches or longer ? at no extra charge. A seamless operation, and reportedly a first among catalogue distributors, Newark InOne ships the reels the same day.
?Our new re-reeling service saves our customers time and money,? said Paul Tallentire, president, Newark InOne. ?Typically, small-quantity distributors offer cut tape reels as an option, and charge an additional fee. Moreover, reels are usually available only in standard length increments, and the service can add a few days to the order.?
Newark InOne applies a leader and trailer to each reel according to Electronics Industries Alliance (EIA) standards, to assure that it can be properly machine-fed.
Complementing its new re-reeling service, Newark InOne has added more than 9,000 passive products to its offering, from market leaders such as Vishay, Taiyo Yuden, Bourns, J.W. Miller, Kemet and AVX. Full reels and cut tape can be ordered online at www.newarkinone.com or by calling 1.800.4.Newark (463.9275).
