LOKREEL® component packaging reels are ideal for shipment and storage of any component packaged in carrier tape. For this product, we utilise a blend of virgin and regrind high impact polystyrene (HIPS) material that offers high quality and exceptional protection at a reduced price.
LOKREEL® Pros have an outside diameter of 13″ (330mm) and a 1/2″ (13mm) diameter arbor hole. Reel halves are available in a variety of hub diameters and hub widths. Hub diameters include the standard 4″ (102mm) hub suitable for most carrier tapes and the 7″ (178mm) hub designed to protect devices contained in deep pocket and narrow pitch carrier tapes. Available hub widths include 4mm, 8mm, 16mm and 28mm. Any combination of these hub widths will combine to produce a reel for EIA standard carrier tape widths of 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 44 and 56mm. The table demonstrates LOKREEL® Pro half combinations and the reel widths they produce.
