Rapid Feeder


Pre-order only. Ships 2024.

Rapid Feeder ™ – The World’s Thinnest Feeders ® are only 2mm wider than the tape they feed, allowing you to stack many feeders close together for a faster PNP setup! The feeders are also specifically designed so you don’t need to mechanically index them. No need for a dedicated feeder bank for specific feeder widths, wasting precious machine space. You can mount the Rapid Feeder anywhere along the feeder bank without any gaps between feeders, allowing your SMT tapes to always be 2mm apart!

Designed to work with OpenPNP, you can automatically populate them into the software by scanning the UUID QR code on each feeder with one pass across an axis with your PNP’s head camera. No need to enter each feeder manually. Just scan and fill in the part details!

10mm OD rods for mounting not included.
