Where to get large reel 0402 passives?

Where to get large reel 0402 passives? | 13 December, 2005

Hi,

We used to use large reels of 0603 passives, but now we have moved to 0402 our supplier only has standard small reels. That's actually less components and we have to change the machine more often.

Anyone know any supplier that has the very large reels of 0402 passives? It would be great to change reels less often.

Regards,

Grant

Hi Grant,

Murata do 0402 chip caps on 50K reels - example: GRM1555C1H101JZ01J 0402, 100pf, NPO/C0G 50V 5% (make sure the final letter is included - the J denotes the reel size - D is standard 10K)

Rohm MCR01 series (0402 resistors) come on 6inch, 10K reels.

You will have to wait lead-time for the chip caps though, as not many people will hold these reel sizes as standard, but if it became a problem you could always revert to the smaller reels.

Regarding Chip resistors, if you are a high enough user I may be able to direct you to a source for 330mm reels - e-mail me via my user name if you have any problems.

Hope that helps,

Rob.

Hi,

Great, and thanks for the info. I will check it out.

It's true lead times are long for large reels, but it's worth it when running. We have much faster machines now, but if we are sopped replacing reels all the time, it cuts into up time in a big way.

We use a lot of passives, so the machines run much longer with large reels, but Rohm who we have been using, don't have large reels on 0402, so that's been annoying.

Hi Grant,

What sort of volume of 0402 resistors are you using - I may know someone who would put them on the larger reels.

Hi,

We are using well over half a million a month, so it's not as much as the bug guys, but we really need them from the manufacture direct. I think we have found some, and wow can you get a lot of passives on a 13 inch reel!

Regards,

Grant
