Carrier tape is commonly used for presenting electronic, mechanical and electromechanical devices to pick-and-place machines for automatic placement onto PCBs (printed circuit boards) or during product assembly, as it introduces increased efficiencies on the line. Carrier tape protects the devices from physical and ESD damage during shipping and storage as the parts are sealed securely in form-fitting pockets.

Component Packaging Solutions from EPS Global

EPS Global offers component tape and reeling as a standalone service or as a complement to our IC programming services in all locations. Our automatic machines use vision-controlled device placement in the tape, checking for pin orientation, laser marking and empty pockets.

We have a large and diverse inventory of standard carrier pockets in our centers around the world, and we also design and manufacture our own carrier tape specific to your project which you can find out more about here. We can take electronic or mechanical components in any format, in tubes, on trays or in bulk packaging.

Reduce Production Time by Utilizing Tape and Reel

Reduce Production Time by Utilizing Tape and Reel

Minimizing production time and costs offers a competitive advantage in the mass production of products. Tape and reeling your electronic or mechanical parts can help you transition from manual to automatic placement during the assembly or surface mount technology (SMT) process, achieving faster throughput and saving you significant labor costs.

What is Component Baking?

What is
Component Baking?

All integrated circuits (ICs) are subject to moisture ingress if left in an ambient environment. You may wonder why this is an issue… how bad can it be if a component takes on a little moisture and how could this affect the functionality of the device? In fact, before we even consider the effect on how an exposed device functions inside a finished product...
