YAMAHA ALF feeder
YAMAHA SMT | Auto Load Feeder (ALF feeder)
The ALF reel feeder for YAMAHA SMT pick & Place machines with only 5 seconds loading time.
Supply tape components by merely inserting the tape, all without stopping the machine. You can also replace a feeder during ongoing production.
A smart ‘open at the center’ technique on the ALF feeder is reducing part pick-up errors that happen due to static electricity.
The ALF feeder is during production placed in a FES cart and from there the Pick & Place machines nozzles do component pick-up from the ALF feeder.
You can use the ALF feeders on YAMAHA YS / YSM / YRM series mounters with tape-cutter.
- 2 reels can be set at once / loaded simultaneously.
