How To Use SMT Feeder Correctly?

How to use SMT Feeder correctly? View the blog from SZTech-SMT to use and manage your feeder in an accurate way!

Selection of Tape Feeder

1. Belt feeders are generally divided into 8mm2P, 8mm4P, 8mm4E, 12mm, 16mm, 24mm, 32mm, etc., where (P) stands for paper tape and (E) stands for adhesive tape.

2. The feeder should be selected according to the actual width and pitch of the material belt during operation. Generally, 8mm2P can be substituted for 8mm4P, and 8mm4P can be substituted for 8mm4E, but it should be noted that 8mm2P cannot be substituted for 8mm4E.

Installation of belt feeder

1. Open the feeding cover and tape the guide rail on the feeder tape.

2. Place the material reel on the Feeder reel stand.

3. After passing the upper tape and transmission tape of the material through the guide rail groove of the material tape and the main frame, remove the upper cover tape from the head end of the tape to the place where the material is absorbed, and place the transmission tape in the slot of the guide rail.

4. When the sprocket clamps the moving groove of the transmission tape, pull down the tape guide rail. In the state where the strip guide rail is flatly attached to the transmission tape, finally, adjust and confirm whether the transmission tape is normally included in the sprocket.

5. Hang the fixed and separated upper cover tape flatly between the gear and the forming gear to remove it.

6. Use the swivel arm to push the reel to the pick-up point.

Modification of Feeder transmission distance

1. The 8MM belt feeder has 2P and 4P spacing, and special feeders should be used respectively.

2. The 12MM belt feeder can adjust the spacing of 4MM, 8MM, 12MM according to the type of parts.

3. The 16MM belt feeder can change the transmission distance of 4MM, 8MM, 12MM and 16MM.

4. The 24MM belt feeder can be set to 4MM, 8MM, 12MM, 16MM, 20MM spacing.

5. Use a flat-head screwdriver to unlock the original fixed position, and hold the handle to move to the distance required for this material, which should be consistent with (4, 8, 12, 16, 20). Set screws in the connection.

Installation and detachment of the feeder base

1. Before installing the feeder and the base, use a brush to clean the residual bulk material and other foreign matter on the base.

2. The slots on the base of the feeder each have their own slot number, and insert the feeder into the slot with that number according to the station table provided by the technician.

3. Push the feeder with proper strength until the positioning pin located at the front lower part of the feeder meets the vertical plate.

4. Push the handle forward to fix the feeder on the feeder base, and check whether the feeder is firmly fixed on the feeder base.

5. In order to detach the feeder from the feeder base, first confirm whether the equipment is in a stopped state. After confirmation, pull the handle backward to release the fixed state of the feeder, and hold the handle with your hand to move the feeder backward until it is detached.

Maintenance and inspection items

1. Check whether all the screws on the Feeder are loose (monthly).

2. Add corresponding lubricating oil to the parts that are often driven (monthly).

3. Cleaning of impurities in the sprocket (daily).

4. Shuttle part degaussing (monthly).

5. Check the LED lighting status (every day).

6. Matters needing attention

1. It is forbidden to store in places where magnetic force occurs.

2. The collision between the feeder and the feeder and other objects cannot occur.

3. When disassembling the feeder, it is not allowed to disassemble or stack multiple times.

4. Be sure to maintain the cleanliness of the feeder to prevent failures; reduce production delays due to feeder failures.

5. When disassembling the Feeder, handle it with care to reduce damage to components.
