Functional Description
The Midrange Silver Tape Feeder advances a component from the reel holder to the peel edge where the Mylar (cover) tape is removed. The component is then advanced to the feeder pick-up position where it waits for pickup by the machine.

Procedures and Adjustments
The subsections that follow contain the procedures required for proper feeder operation.

Theory of Operation / Sequence of Events Power is supplied to the feeder from the feeder interface by means of the pogo block’s bottom pins. At power-up, the feeder’s controller board activates the control panel which is verified by the illumination of the LED / status light.

In this “ready” mode the feeder will stand idle, waiting for a signal from the placement machine to advance. The signal is transported through the top two pins of the pogo block. After the signal is sent by the placement machine, the feeder performs the following operational sequences:

1.The feeder’s drive motor is activated for carrier tape advancement.

2.The drive motor engages a series of gears, clutch, and clutch drive belt that advances the carrier tape as well as peeling and discharging the Mylar cover tape.

3.The slot sensor, in combination with the toothplate, verifies proper tape index and positioning.

4.The feeder singnals the placement machine that the feeder index is complete.

5. The feeder waits for the next index singnal which ix sent after a component is picked from the tape window.
