Re-Reeling: 10 components on one roll? We do it!

The SMT pick-and-place machine requires the components on a belt, on a roll, regardless if it is a mass production or just a few prototypes. If the individual components for the automatic production of assemblies in small and very small batches are only kept in the required number, this saves costs. However, a belt section with a small number of components also means an inconvenient manual effort: In order for it to be set up on a reel on the machine, one must splice on a leader and a follower.

Re-reeling service

"more than you expect!" is not just a marketing claim, it really is our program. After all, our customers not only find innovative products in top quality at our company, but also services that go beyond what is customary in the industry. Because we focus on the needs of developers, we always supply components without minimum order quantities. And to ensure that handling small component quantities does not create additional work in production, we offer a re-reeling service. This service is available for the majority of our products, starting at a quantity of 10 pieces! This means: Customers can order individual component quantities in belt gates on a roll with at least 40 cm lead and lag. This means that it is no longer a problem to process the components immediately with an SMT placement machine, even if the batch sizes are really very small.

If you are interested in how exactly the splicing of the leading and trailing edges works at our company, you are welcome to watch a short video that we have made of the process.
