Ideal for taking up more component devices in a single reel, the 15” LOKREEL® Ultra is injection-molded using specially formulated high impact polystyrene (HIPS) material and finished with an application of an anti-static agent for ESD protection. An assembled reel is comprised of two inter-locking flanges suitable for winding and transporting carrier tapes packaged with components. Each LOKREEL® Ultra flange is built with the same durable structure as our premium 13” LOKREEL® PRO.
(Note: this reel is not designed to be unsnapped)
LOKREEL® Ultra reels have an outer diameter of 15” (381mm) and a 1/2″ (13mm) diameter arbor hole. The hub diameter is 6″ (152mm), suitable for most carrier tapes. Reel halves are available in a variety of hub diameters and hub widths. Hub widths include 4mm, 8mm, 16mm and 28mm, which combine to produce reels for EIA standard carrier tape width of 8mm, 12mm, 16mm, 24mm, 32mm, 44mm and 56mm. The table demonstrates LOKREEL® Ultra half combination and the reel widths they produce.
