0402 placement with Mydata machine

0402 placement with Mydata machine | 25 August, 2004

Please help.. I have seen somewhere a method of placing 0402 part using Mydata machine with standard 8 mm feeder, but I can not find it now. Does any one know how to place 0402 part with 8 mm feeder without loosing every other part? Thanks for any help.

You can't do it. The pitch of the tape advancing sprocket is not the right pitch on a TM8 magazine. You need a TM8FC magazine.

TM8 Magazines step 4mm min. You need a TM8FC or Agilis. You can make a tray and pick from strips of tape too.

We started placing 0402 with regular feeders and wasted every other part untill we got the correct feeders. The cost for most parts runs less than 1/20 th of a cent. Reels come in quanities of 10,000 instead of 5,000. You will also need the correct tool to pick 0402's. The C-14 tool is required as 0402 parts will get lodged in a A-12 nozzle deforming it. Creating a tray as other reader sugested is also an option but is not desirable due to the care and time required for large placement quanities. OK if you have only a couple of placements per board. Good Luck.
