YAMAHA Auto Loading Feeder

YAMAHA SMT | Auto Load Feeder | ALF feeder


The ALF reel feeder for YAMAHA SMT  pick & Place machines  with  o nly 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
