GPAX provides a total process solution for the packaging, shipping/handling and feeding of Odd Form components and other unique parts for automated assembly. Custom designed and manufactured pocketed and through hole flat tape for SMT and THT parts is is an approved EIA standard and is available as EIA IA/704.
Due to the custom design of carrier and cover tape, GPAX is able to incorporate features in the carrier tape to protect parts once loaded, eliminate polarity presentation issues and loading mistakes that lead to failed testing and additional costs in repair. GPAX cover tape is mechanically interlocking with the carrier tape which eliminates the need for pressure or heat sealed cover tape. Peel force testing, variability in tape adhesion force and tearing/stretching of the cover tape is eliminated.
