(8/5/19) The simplest solution is usually the best.

With all the different splicing solutions that Smart Splice has to offer, there is something to be said for one of our easiest to use alignment jigs. This jig fits on the middle finger of the machine operator, and is used to align our new double edge splice tapes with the carrier/cover tape. The best thing is that it has no moving parts and can help to splice any type of carrier/cover tape, as well as any width of carrier tape from 8-72mm. Just head over to our web site…

(7/11/19) To splice or not to splice?

Yes, I took a few liberties from William Shakespeare, but this is important enough that I don’t think he’d mind. For us here at Smart Splice LLC, this question is really not what you should be asking yourself (every Pick and Place customer should be splicing). Instead, you should really be asking yourself how much money you could be saving in this cost shaving environment! When pennies are starting to mean more and more as companies bid for new jobs, and try to lower the costs on jobs they may…

(5/8/19) Scissors are so yesterday!

Are you still having issues with tape splicing jams on your tape feeders? Even using the highest quality tape splicing materials from Smart Splice, can’t guarantee a seamless splice on any size carrier tape if you don’t start with a perfect cut of that tape. That cut requires the use of an alignment system on the cutters you choose to use (not someone’s old scissors from their desk drawer). Smart Splice now has the widest selection of cutters available on the market today! There are three cutters that use the…
