Hi All,

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to change just the ratchet wheel on a Fuji 8x4 feeder to make it 8x2 so we can run 0402 chips, or would we need to change other parts in the feeders as well?

All of the 402 parts that we use come on 8X4 reels; double check the part pitch on the reel.

Thanks, but we don't have the parts yet, I need to know if it's do-able before the parts arrive, or I'll need to buy 20 new feeders if the parts are packaged on 8x2 reels.

I do not think you can modify a 8*4 feeder to 8*2.

Suppliers make a hell of a lot of money out of feeders so I would say they have that one covered.

I think you will have to bite the bullet and buy 8*2 feeders.

If you find out that you can modify them let us know.

Not sure about Fuji but it can be done on Panasonic feeders.

The machine is a CP-6.

Thanks to all for the replies. We may be able to specify the packaging for the parts, but being a consigned kit, it depends on if our customer has already ordered them or not.

Fuji will not sell the reel by itself. also, you need to change the tape guide to 0.7 in order to place the 0402. Tape guide cost you almost a hundred bucks. I don't think it is a good idea to modify the feeder.

That Fuji won't sell the reel by itself is difficult to believe. Is there a part number assigned to the reel? If so...they will sell it.

Why not check the parts lists for both the 8x2 & the 8x4 feeders ?. This should tell you for sure.

I've done that before, and although the parts are identical, they have different part nos.
