Safeguarding Against Pocket Crushing

When faced with the challenges of loading very heavy and very deep devices onto carrier tape, it is not uncommon to face problems with crushing. The reasons are several, and mainly add up to:

  1. Not enough corner support on deep-draw pockets.
  2. Using take-up reels with smaller 4-inch inner cores. Instead, try a telescoping 7inch core as seen with OX3R0615.
  3. Not taking advantage of wrapping layers with flat interliner. Try our Reelwrap products such as OX3WGHS08.
  4. Inevitably this will result in fewer parts-per-reel (ppr) so be sure to review our Tech Sheet: Calculating Parts Per Reel.
