Hi all,

Is anyone out there placing 0402 with a CP4?

Not sure how reliable it would be and also how do work around the nozzle setup ? we currently have 2.5mm ,1.3mm & 1.0mm so do you remove say 6 x 2.5mm and put in 0.7mm.

Any replies appreciated.

Hi AJ,

Change ALL 12 of the 1.0mm to 0.7mm. The CP 4 can only set nozzle size for S M and L not some of the 12 but all 12.

0402 usually come in 8 x 2 mm tape so you need 8 x 2 feeders or you will waste 1 component for every component you use.

The feeders are the key to success. If you have good feeders and your machine is in reasonably good shape 0402 are not that hard.

Thanks for reply,

So do you use 1.3 or the 0.7 nozzle for 0603 components ( I suppose trial & error will tell me).

In the PD for 0603 I have a min size of 0.7mm and a max size of 1.0mm and the CP4 size at 0.0mm. This way when you have 1.0mm nozzles in the machine it will use that and when you change them to 0.7mm it will use that. Both sizes work OK.

If you do not want to buy a new feeder there should only be 2-3 parts you need to change on your CP-4 feeder to make it an 0802. the only difference between the 0804 and the 0802 are the Link, the sprocket, and the stopper. Everything else is exactly the same on the feeders. If you can find those parts, the modification should take only a few minutes.
