Our clients often have non-standard requirements during the manufacturing process, such as the packaging of extremely high volumes of non-electronic devices used in the SMT process. With a deep understanding of component configuration and pre-forming, our skilled team of electrical engineers have designed and manufactured bowl-fed packaging solutions.
Using our vibrating bowl feeding technology enables us to repackage small components on reels ready for surface mounting. Additionally we use our bowl feeders to singulate leaded components during the pre-forming process and many other specialized processes such as polarity testing prior to lead cropping. Manual handling is eliminated, increasing speed and accuracy, and reducing points of failure.
Our client, who is a global supplier for systems vendors in the automotive and consumer goods industries, manufactures precision products made of steel strip and wire. Their client had a requirement to place high-volume miniaturized mechanical components to very tight tolerances on small PCBs. They needed line-ready product in production volumes delivered.
We designed and manufactured bowl-fed tape and reel equipment capable of placing devices to the necessary tolerances and introduced a system of twice daily breadman deliveries in 100% reusable containers.
"We were looking to tape & reel metal heatsinks, and Diehl Controls introduced us to EPS. They have provided good service, and good support in project development. They also offered a great logistics solution for the material transportation."
We are always looking to expand our partnerships and service offering. If you would like us to research and quote on any project, please contact us.
