QF Series, Fuji Compatible tape feeders are designed for reliable operation in a light-weight, ergonomic design. They require very low maintenance while accommodating tape widths up to 120 mm as well as deep pocket components. Hover-Davis QF Series feeders come with useful diagnostic and maintenance tools.
QF Series feeders offer versatile electronic multipitch operation. Pitch selection via a selector button means that a single feeder can be used for several component pitch types. The result is that less feeder inventory is required compared to traditional fixed pitch feeders.
Their smooth, motor-driven feeder advance is electronically controlled. This leads to fewer component mispicks. QF Series also offers a reversible tape index drive – easily controlled via push button. Indispensable when loading or unloading, this feature can dramatically reduce component loss.
Two standard reel sizes are available, 15″ or 18″. Maximum pocket depth is between 4 mm and 22 mm, depending on tape width (8 mm up to 120 mm). This eliminates the need for custom feeders.
