Hello All,

Can anyone tell me a supplier of SMT Leader tape. I remember (but don't know the name) an after market manufacture that sold them in 12" strips with the Adhesive added. I thought they also made Board loders and un-loaders. Or if anyone has other sources, that would greatly be appreciated.

We use a Hoover Davis Tape and Splicer. We buy rolls of blank cover tape and cut leaders as long as we need them.

Hello Cal,

I have left Tempo and started my own business. We manufacture a carrier tape like that of Surftape. Mag-D Electronics Adhesive Back Carrier Tape has a punched Blue Nitto Tape Gap and not two rails. Our Punched Nitto carrier is more accurate and precise than that of Tempo. We can provide 8mm wide and 12mm wide carrier tapes at this time. Please visit our website at to view our Tape Splicing Products and Adhesive Back carrier Tapes. Are you still with The Equipment Advisory Board in Philly? Give me a call when you have time.

I look forward to hearing from you.
