The X-Stream Series Tape Feeder System is the reliable, precise automated tape input peripheral for the BPM Microsystems automated programming systems. The X-Stream Series offers a broad range of carrier tape sizes, from 8 to 56mm. Tightly coupled with BPWin™ process control software, the X-Stream Series intelligently advances the feeder on command, ensuring the feeder presents the next device as needed.
The X-Stream Series provides easy setup and fast changeover. Intuitive buttons control tape advance and reverse for simple pick point adjustment and calibration. Each feeder body includes an input reel holder, accommodating reels up to 15 inches in diameter. An ergonomic handle eases operator handling and installation.
Small CSP package handling requires smooth indexing, accuracy, and repeatability. The 8mm and 12mm X-Stream Series feeders are specially engineered to include a pick window with a spring-loaded insert. This stabilizes vibration by applying downward pressure to the carrier tape, resulting in the precise presentation of small components to the APS nozzle.
Designed for high-speed pick and place machines, X-Stream Series feeders are robust with minimal service requirements. If an unexpected error does occur, the onboard diagnostics feature and electronic calibration make troubleshooting fast and easy.
