Smart Tape Feeders
High-Precision Design, Built-In Memory Modules,
For the Most Advanced and Reliable Tape Feeder Operation
 

COMPLETED with some of the most useful and innovative features in the industry, Autotronik Smart Tape Feeders are setting a new standard for accurate, dependable, and economical surface mount component presentation. A new slim-profile design maximizes the number of feeders that can be mounted in the space available on the pick and place machine and provides ultra-smooth, electronic actuation and tape advance.

Each individual Autotronik Smart Tape Feeder has a DB-9 interface connector on its front end and, in seconds, easily plugs in to either the 48-port FR-48K or 32-port FR-32K Smart Feeder Bases on BS Series pick and place systems. This interface allows communication between the Autotronik Smart Feeder Control Software and the memory module built into each Smart Feeder. The memory module stores a unique ID number that links feeder hardware with assigned feeder position data, component data, and even tape indexing data.

 
Autotronik Smart Feeders are available for 8 mm to 72 mm tape widths and feature programmable tape index settings from 2mm (for 0201 and 0402’s) up to 36 mm. Optional Bar Code Reader for component data entry and verification isprior to assembly.
