Why do Pogo Pins use Tape&Reel packaging ?
First let's introduce what is the Tape&Reel ?
Packaging tape refers to the plastic Tape&Reel widely used in IC, Pogopin,resistor, inductor, capacitor, connector, fuse, switch, relay, connector, oscillator, two, three audion and other SMT electronic components packaging. According to the use of the carrier can be divided into: IC special carrier, transistor special carrier, SMT LED special carrier, SMT inductor special carrier, comprehensive SMD carrier, SMT capacitor special carrier, SMT connector special carrier, etc
According to the use of the carrier can be divided into: IC special carrier, transistor special carrier, SMT LED special carrier, SMT inductor special carrier, comprehensive SMD carrier, SMT capacitor special carrier, SMT connector special carrier, etc
According to the material of the belt, it can be divided into PS belt, ABS belt, PET belt, PC belt, HIPS belt, PE belt and so on.
Belt production equipment: Belt equipment is also called belt forming machine. At present, there are mainly two kinds of belt forming machines: roller type and plate type. The difference between the two lies in the different molding mold.
Production materials: PS, ABS, PET, PC, HIPS, PE and other plastic materials, special requirements can be made of metal.
About Tape&Reel manufacturing material:
Abbreviation for PC
Is a colorless transparent qualitative thermoplastic material. Its name comes from its internal CO3 group.
Polycarbonate is resistant to acid and oil.
Polycarbonate is not resistant to ultraviolet light, not resistant to strong alkali.
PC physical properties
Polycarbonate is colorless and transparent, heat resistant, impact resistant, flame retardant, and has good mechanical properties in common use temperature. Compared with the performance of close to poly methyl methacrylate, polycarbonate has good impact resistance, high refractive index and good processing performance. It does not need additives to have UL94 V-0 flame retardant performance.
PC disadvantage is poor wear resistance. Some polycarbonate devices used in wear-prone applications require special surface treatment.
PS stands for Polystyrene, which is a thermoplastic synthetic resin, and is widely used in electronic/electrical industry...
PS: Belongs to polystyrene, commonly known as hard glue.
Its scientific name in Chinese is polystyrene,
It uses General PurposePolystyrene,
In the plastics industry, it's called PS
Main uses: used for making lamp shade, instrument shell cover, toys, etc.
Physical characteristics: easy to burn, after leaving the open flame continues to burn, softening and foaming when burning, the flame is orange and produces thick black soot beam, and produces a special smell of styrene monomer
Knowledge about belt forming Machine:
1. Plate type belt forming machine is suitable for more than 12mm belt, especially ko greater than 4mm; The formation stability of airborne strip is poor, and P2 and F values are difficult to control, so it is difficult to do precision forming.
2. Roller belt conveyor with concave die and punch forming system, punch precision can ensure the precision of belt forming, the current equipment can reach ±0.05mm, imported belt forming machine can reach ±0.03mm precision.
Since our Pogo pin is relatively small, it is inconvenient and slow to weld on PCB board manually. If we use tape packaging, we can save a lot of labor cost. Therefore, we suggest to use Tape&Reel packaging as much as possible in mass production.
