Digi-reels from Digikey? Likes? Dislikes? | 21 March, 2011

Has anyone had experience with Digi-reels from Digikey? What are your likes and Dislikes? Do they work well with Juki Feeders? We have tried the ones that came in with red tape and they seem to get stuck in the feeders. Anyone else have this issue or other issues.

We don't like them on our MyData's, and recommend our customers not pay the extra money to have them done by Digikey. The small reels tend to get stuck in the MyData magazines, and are difficult to deal with. Since the MyData's handle strips fairly well, the only advantage we've found is that they come with leaders....however, we've noticed recently that the leaders were poorly spliced on, which resulted in us clipping them off prior to loading anyway.

Cheers, ..rob
