Services - Tape & Reel


Surface Mount Tape and Reel

We are proud to offer a full range of surface mount taping capabilities, and not just for the everyday components. We process components as small as 0201 chips as well as giant connectors, metal stampings, PLCC 100's, MLP's, Large QFP's, MicroBGA's weird oddform parts and things that don't even have a real name. We tape from 1 part to millions and can handle components over 7" long and over 1" deep!


Coplanarity and Colinearity

We also offer true Coplanarity (3D) or Implied Colinearity (2D) inspection on our automatic equipment. What ever YOUR requirements are, we can accommodate them. We recently did this for a customer that absolutely wanted to insure there would be as close to ZERO rejects as possible. We already inspected the components for every measurable vision scan there was but our client wanted more. We added a special camera to verify all components were still properly placed in the pocket AFTER THE COVER TAPE WAS PUT ON! Extreme? Remember, our goal is to make your life easier and solve your problems.

But Automatic Inspection has limitations...You can't properly inspect a lot of mixed manufacturers because their tolerances will usually be different enough to make a set of data impossible. That's when we go to the tried and true Manual Inspection. But either way, you can count on ACT to provide the highest level of quality and service available.

Because we support component manufacturers, distributors and EMS providers, we see a wide variety of components from PSOP44's to 3x3MicroBGS's. That means you can be sure, that somewhere in our dynamic inventory of literally thousands of different carrier tapes, we probably have one that will fit your components perfectly, and if we don't we can make it.


And you don't have to worry if we have equipment that can handle your components. We maintain a diverse array of equipment designed to meet most any need.


Lead Refurbishing
