DISCRETE SOCKETS FOR PICK & PLACE
Mill-Max offers a 7" mini reel to accommodate 8 & 12mm carrier tapes.
Mill-Max offers receptacles (discrete sockets) on carrier tape per EIA-481 to feed automated ‘pick & place’ assembly equipment. Standard reel size has been 13", but for 8 & 12mm wide carrier tapes, the company offers the 7" ‘mini’ reel. A 7" reel holds about one quarter the parts of a 13" reel. This is more economical and convenient for smaller volume customers who want the benefit of automated assembly.
