pre-punched tape diagram
Re-flex II uses pre-punched and pre-slit tape to meet the most demanding of requirements for the most complex tape forming applications. The rotary punch process used to create pre-punched tape ensures the highest accuracy and repeatability and results in a cumulative tolerance of sprocket hole spacing, P0, of ± 0.2mm (± 0.008in) meeting IEC/EIA standards.

By indexing against the sprocket hole the Re-flex II ensures a very accurate P2 position and even pitch spacing (P), enabling reliable operation of pick and place equipment.

Re-flex II allows the use of different tape materials to meet any pocket design characteristics:

  • Three-layer (PS-ABS-PS) - Polystyrene (PS) and Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)
  • Single Layer (PC) Polycarbonate
  • Single Layer (PS) Polystyrene
