Feeder Finger Releases Embossed Tape Finger for Juki

SAN DIEGO, CA ― October 2018 ― Feeder Finger, a division of Automation Technical Services, today announced the release of their embossed tape Finger for its key partner, Juki Automation Systems. Due to market demand, the teams at both Feeder Finger and Juki collaborated to design, build and test a finger specifically made to handle embossed tape. This product expansion is expected to garner pre-orders at SMTA International with full production available in November 2018.

Juki customers have embraced the Feeder Fingers for their existing Juki lines with orders consistently growing monthly since 2017 when the two companies signed their worldwide sales agreement. The ability to handle cut tape drove demand and now customers are looking to ensure that they can utilize all types of tape.

ATS designed the cut tape solution to precisely fit each feeder model. The high-quality anodized aerospace machined aluminum replaces the existing tape guide. Feeder Finger allows for an unskilled operator to easily supply tape components by merely inserting the tape itself without the need for splicing or complex routing of the cover tape through the feeder. Buy what you need and save on extra costs now associated with cut tape solutions in the market.

Please stop by the Juki booth Oct. 16-17th during SMTA International to see a demo and place your order. Staff will be on hand at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois to answer all questions while also demonstrating the full line of complimentary Feeder Fingers to help ensure that the 21 percent market share Juki appreciates is serviced to handle modern workload demands, such as cut tape. With 40,000 Juki machines installed worldwide, Feeder Finger growth is expected to continue throughout 2019 with this new addition to their offerings.
