Specifically designed to enhance line operation and productivity. With a durable light weight construction and easy loading features the SSF feeder will accommodate any line configuration. The SSF tape feeders incorporates many unique features that make operation simple, maintenance minimal and cost of ownership the lowest in their class. The use of stepper motor technology means that tape indexing is smooth and repeatable. Component loading is simplified by the introduction of reversible tape indexing that significantly reduces component loss at set up. SSF feeders are drop in compatible and require no modifications to the machine of programs.
