13″ Lite Component Packaging Reels LOKREEL®

Component Packaging

LOKREEL® Lite plastic injection-molded packaging reels are an exceptional choice where price is a key concern. LOKREEL® Lite reels are designed to achieve a combination of structural integrity, lower weight and lower cost than the premium reels. The LOKREEL® Lite is built with the same durable hub structure as the premium LOKREEL® Pro. The flanges have larger windows to reduce the amount of plastic used and yet still support up to three labels as large as 3″ x 4″ (75mm x 100mm) each.

  • Shipped in halves to decrease shipping costs by up to 70%
  • “Nest-stacked” high-density packing reduces needed storage space by as much as 60% when compared with the one-piece molded assembled reel
  • Halves configuration offers flexibility in managing the different reel widths needed during production—from 8mm to 56mm
  • Reels assemble with simple twisting motion, requiring no gluing or fasteners

LOKREEL® Lite reels have an outer diameter of 13″ (330mm) and a 1/2″ (13mm) diameter arbor hole. The hub diameter is 4″ (102mm), suitable for most carrier tapes. Reel halves are available in a variety of hub widths from 4mm, 8mm, 16mm and 28mm, and combining of any two widths would produce a reel for EIA standard carrier tape with width of 8mm, 12mm, 16mm, 24mm, 32mm, 44mm or 56mm. The table demonstrates LOKREEL® Lite half combinations and the reel widths they produce.
