Static Control Handling Tools
Precision modern electronics require sensitive handling and semiconductors, wafers, memory chips, processor units and hard drives are just some of the items which require protection from static electricity. These range of critical ESD workplace tools are all insulated and designed to mitigate the effects of static, helping to protect your working environment.
Accessories such as ESD pliers, tweezers, soldering and testing & monitoring equipment and tools will ensure that a technician is properly grounded before commencing work on a static-sensitive device.
Bandolier Brass Shims
Bandolier Brass Shims are designed to easily pierce through all types of paper and plastic leader tapes. Can be used with the Semi-Automatic Splice Tool and splice tape of any width.
Non-adhesive brass shims with 5 holes matching the spacing of SMT Leader Tapes. This product is detectable by automatic pick and place machines whilst not interfering with the running of the equipment.
Double Splice Tape
Perforated Double Splice Tape guarantees perfect and reliable joins in all types of carrier tape.
Used for splicing purposes in SMT processes and production areas, the Double Splice Tape provides precise joining without the need for any additional tools.
Semi-Automatic Splice Tool
Semi-Automatic Splice Tool is very simple and easy to use. Combine usage with the bandolier type shims for increased productivity.
Use this tool for professional splicing of SMD tape, paper or embossed connecting reels.
Single Brass Shims
Single Brass Shims are designed to meet standards of EIA-481B. Can be used with Component Reel Splice Tool and splice tape of any width. Supplied in boxes of 4,000.
Non-adhesive pure brass shims with 5 holes matching the holes of SMT Leader Tapes.
SMT Component Reel Tool
Ergonomically designed specifically for SMT Carrier Tapes of all sizes.
SMT Component Reel Splice Tool for use with single brass shims for increased productivity in joining tapes.
Splice Carrier Tape
Flat leader punched-hole tape for use with all major SMT pick and place feeders. Comes with cover tape attached top.
Available in a range of colors: Black, White and Transparent.
Choose from: 8mm, 12mm, 16mm or 24mm widths. (Other sizes available upon request). NB: White supplied only at 8mm width.
Splice Tape Connectors
Splice Tape Connectors are used to join new reels to depleted reels in the SMT industry. This avoids machine downtime and increases efficiency.
Splice Tape Connectors help increase production throughput and yields by approximately 15-20% and are suitable on all SMT pick and place feeders.
Splice Tape Extenders (PET Type)
Splice Tape Extenders (PET Type) reduce waste of component reels that do not have a leader at the beginning.
Tape Extenders add an extra 19” of tape as a leader and feed into SMT Feeders as a piece of cover tape. Available in a range of widths, quantities 250 per pack or 500 per pack, depending on the size chosen.
Splice Tape with Shims (combined)
Splice Tape with Shims combined. Can be used for all pick and place feeders. Increases throughput and yields by approximately 15%.
Available in yellow. Choose from a range of sizes. Available in 250 or 500 pieces per pack, depending on the size chosen.
ESD Floor Marking Tape
This self-adhesive, high visibility Floor Marking Tape is designed to be used to mark the boundaries of ESD Protected Areas. It adheres very well to synthetic flooring such as PVC floor tiles, and can also be confidently used on concrete floors, where it can be expected to withstand traffic, dust particles and remain intact for several months.
Choose from a wide range of colors to clearly mark your EPA boundaries.
ESD Grid Tape
This self-adhesive, general purpose ESD Grid Tape is used within the EPA to mask or hold together components and circuit boards. Manufactured from a silicone-free, low-residue polypropylene and coated with a static dissipative surface, it is ESD safe. Fully printed with a grid pattern and the ESD caution logo for clarity. This product conforms to ES 61340-5-1/5-2.
Available in two widths as standard, but get in touch if you have other needs.
Hazard Marking Tape
Our highly visible Hazard Marking Tape designed to mark hazardous areas. The 108ft (33m) long rolls of tape are manufactured from a heavily plasticized film that is then coated with an aggressive pressure-sensitive adhesive for a strong hold. The tape is ideal for hazardous working areas that need to be clearly marked out to prevent unauthorized access.
Suitable for use in factory and manufacturing settings, and all hazardous areas.
