Using Stripfeeders on MyData Tray Wagons

Using Stripfeeders on MyData Tray Wagons | 23 June, 2014

Hello all,

We have a My12 pick and place machine and have had limited success taping component strips to the tray wagon. Because we are a low volume/high mix business, we use a variety of packages. We are considering purchasing a strip feeder from Count On Tools, Inc. to help get a high placement percentage.

Is anyone using a strip feeder? Does it offer any improvement over taping strips to the tray wagon?

Thanks in advance for all advice.

We had both a MY15 and a TP11 both with tray wagons and we taped strips to the tray wagon all the time with great success. we used double sided tape, sometimes with magnets, and then created "trays" as if the tape strip was a matrix tray. (1 x 10,15 or 20 pockets). It worked flawlessly every time. What type of issues are you having?

I agree with AVFM. We have had at least 5 TP machines and a MY12.

We stick carrier tape to scrap circuit boards with double sided tape. Teach it as a tray.

Works perfect.

The Count On strip feeder looks cool but is no necessary in my opinion.

We built a tray that accepts tape. It is made out of a waffle tray and board breakaways. It works very well. We use magnets to mount it on our Y-Wagon teaching it as a tray.

We find sticking tape down to the tray wagon or to a base plate is Ok but not very repeatable - when you peel the empty off and stiock a new on e down you have to relocate it every time so some way of holding the strip in a repeatable way is better. Mydatas strip holder is hopeless - only goes on the Y wagon. The COT adjustable plate looks great but is expensive. We've made our own over the years similar to the pictures above.

I agree with all other posters...strips on the Y-Wagon have always worked out, rather easily. Some people I've met consider it a benefit to having a MyData.

However, I would add that MyData's handle strips in the feeders better than most other pick and place machines out there. Before asking about using the Y-Wagon, I would question why you don't just load the strip onto your regular feeders. IMO, that's why you get a MyData instead of, say, an Assembleon.

Cheers, ..rob

Hello

We work with a TP9-4 and a MY12 both with tray wagons, I like a lot the tray wagon, for big components we use it, but like AVFM we build our own pallets, and some of them were big 3x30 array or even bigger all pallets were done in a ESD material, never had a problem with them,what problems do you have?
