Suction Tape

Suction Tape | 7 August, 2003

We are planning on placing a smt connector, the spec sheet calls out that "suction tape is added for smt suction". I am assuming that since this is a straight connector and I will be picking it up across where the pins are (male connector)that there is a piece of tape across this area. Does this sound right?

Yes you are correct Barry. The Suction tape provides a flat surface for the PNP nozzle to pick -up. In some cases I have seen a plastic "cap" ove rthe pins to provide the same thing. The cap can be reused.

Both require, unfortunatly, manual removal.

Depending on the connector, nozzzle, and machine...it is possible to have a custom nozzle for this application. See your vendor for more info.
