If anyone is placing 0402 components using a Quad 4C I would like to hear any tips or advise. We have a job that is loaded with them.

We have a 4C and it places 0402 components without any problems. The tricky part is getting the machine to pick them up out of the feeder it takes patience but you will get it. jake p.s. you must use a repeat pickup so you wont have a ton of fallout.

Try calling Quad, I know that they were in development of a feeder designed specifically for 0402. The problem has always been the pick of such a small part, but the placement is very reliable.

By way, have you heard that Quad is being purchased by Tyco!! Hopefully this puts them back on track.

As long as you perform a repeat pickup on the part with an ordinary feeder you will be fine.

I place 0302's on my Quad 4c's all the time. Use a repeat pick-up just like a waffle tray part but make sure the z height is perfect on your pick-up or you will bounce the other parts out of their pockets. Also change your mod code to only try once otherwise the blow-back will blow them out of their pocket. Good luck.

Tyco has recently completed development work on the ThinPRO feeder. This feeder provides exceptional performance for 0201 and 0402 applications. The feeder is compatable with the IV-C, QSV, QSX, QSP-2, and APS platforms.
