Welcome to Feeder Finger what is it and how does it work
The Feeder Finger is a precision machined Tape Guide that replaces the original guide on your existing OEM feeder. It utilizes a plow blade to detach and separate the cover tape. The cover tape is detached from the side opposite of the tape sprocket holes and folded and creases out of the way of the pick and place as the component tape indexes through the feeder.
The Feeder Finger works with both paper and embossed tapes depending on the feeder type and utilizes cut tape as short as three inches 76mm or full reels.
Feeder setup is merely pushing the tape to the sprocket and indexing the feeder attaching a leader or routing and collecting the cover tape is no longer required.
