15″ Ultra Component Packaging Reels LOKREEL®

Component Packaging

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.

  • Shipped in halves to reduce shipping costs up to 70%
  • “Nest-stacked” high-density packing decreases needed storage space by as much as 60% when compared with the single-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

(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.
