Custom Component Tape Feeders | 17 July, 2007

I would like to know if there are any other major, high quality, and capable custom component tape feeders for surface mount components? So far the only hit that I get, over and over, is Hover Davis, does anyone know of any other good options in this field? Any contact information, websites, etc. would be a great help!

Most placement equipment manufacturers produce custom feeders for their users.

Check the fine archives or click here:

The major placement companies MAY work with you on custom feeders, but it is very doubtful. There is no real money in making a custom one-off feeder. Normally you need to work with the part manufacturer to fit a feeder requirement.

I haven't used them before, but I have recently heard that GPAX can create custom tape and custom feeders for odd components.

Their website has some interesting pictures and videos.
