Press Release Summary:
Designed for tape and reel feeding to Sigma Series modular mounters, GT-24040 dual tape feeder measures 4 x 1 mm and processes 4 mm wide embossed tape used for 0402 mm (01005) and 0603 mm (0201) parts. Ability to pick chips from 4 mm wide tape instead of 8 mm tape reduces waste, dust and static electricity generation, as well as moisture influence to pocket.

HITACHI Intros New 4mm Emboss Taping Feeder at IPC/APEX 2014 Exhibit
Dallas, TX, USA — Hitachi High Tech Instruments will exhibit, among other modular mounter innovations, its new GT-24040 4mm Emboss Tape Feeder this coming week in Booth #448 at IPC/APEX 2014 in Las Vegas, NV. The new feeder is designed for 4mm wide tape and reel feeding to its Sigma Series modular mounters. The GT-24040(4mm X 1mm) is a dual tape feeder and processes 4mm wide embossed tape used for 0402mm (01005) and 0603mm (0201) parts, According to HTA's Tom Simpson. "Our new GT-24040 is a greener solution overall," he states, "In part because it has the ability to pick chips from 4mm wide tape instead of 8mm tape; this greatly reduces waste." Dust remediation is also a major advantage of the GT-24040; there's less dust generated from packaging materials, the pocket, and less dust under the tape cut. There's less static
electricity when peeling, and less moisture influence to the pocket.
The new feeder will be on exhibit along with HTA's new self-loading SL-Feeders, 'splice-less' 8mm feeders that eliminate production interruptions once required for reel splicing, and other innovative product developments. Hitachi High Technologies America will exhibit these innovations with the new G5S Mounter in Booth #448, March 25 – 27 at IPC/APEX 2014 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas.
