Tray Based Tape & Reel

STI Hexa Evo

Hexa Evo & Evo+

Tray Based Scanner for Leaded/Leadless, Ball Array Packages & Large Form Factor Packages

  • Top Package Visual Inspect (PVI) with orientation checking and correction

  • Bottom PVI

  • 3D On-The-Fly Lead / Ball Inspection

  • Symbol Inspection

  • In-pocket Inspection

  • Dual Tape & Reel

The Hexa Evo is an integrated tool combining In-Tray Scanning & Taping functions into a single platform. It also features up to 6 semiconductor back-end processes into a compact system. This leadership product not only provides the highest throughput for tray & taping output, its comprehensive Package Visual Inspection (PVI) capabilities ensure that outgoing quality specifications are never compromised. Adopting STI’s proprietary 3D OTF  “On-the-Fly” Laser and 2D Camera technologies in tandem allows for inspection to be carried out with devices in “live-bug” orientation. This eliminates the risk of device dropping during tray-flip for “dead-bug” presentation required in conventional machines. The dual taper design maximises machine utilisation as production is uninterrupted during material changeover.  Hexa Evo offers class-leading UPH up to 50,000 

TR48 Mk5

TR48 Mk5

High Speed Tray Taping System 

  • Servo-driven 3 head Pick & Place System
  • Throughput up to 14,000 hour dependent upon tray matrix and yield.
  • On-the-fly rotate (0˚, 90˚, 270˚)
  • In Pocket STI Integra Inspection System for 2D Gull-Wing Lead Inspection & Mark/Orientation Inspection
  • Autosort feature for Mark & Lead Reject
  • De-tape (tape to tray) mode very helpful for rework/retest.
  • Heat seal/PSA seal tape & reel module
  • Windows PC Based Control System with Keyboard & Mouse.
  • Intuitive user friendly operator interface with full machine diagnostics capability.

The TR48Mk5 High Speed Tray to Tape System continues the legacy of the ever popular field proven TR48 series of machines with the latest Mk5 model which offers throughput up to 14,000 achieved through 3 pick & place heads with motorised On-the-Fly head pitch adjustment.  The TR48 Mk5 combines high performance with ease of operation and includes STI's field-proven Integra Vision inspection system providing 2D lead & mark In-Pocket inspection with auto-sort reject management ensuring maximum machine throughput.

The TR48 Mk5 also features STI's latest icon based GUI providing a simple and efficient operator interface.  


Turret Systems



Multi Station Handler for Leaded & Leadless Packages

STI's fast & reliable turret platform has evolved again to provide the AT468 high-speed multi-function scan-pack handler, engineered to provide maximum throughput for both leaded and leadless packages.

The fully automated design consists of a primary 24-station rotary turret coupled with a secondary multi-station inspection table for top side inspections. The flexible modular concept allows for media transfer flexibility, supporting a wide range of Input/ Output configurations. 


  • Plastic tube
  • JEDEC tray
  • Vibratory bowl


  • Plastic Tube
  • JEDEC tray
  • Tape & reel

Integrated electrical test is also available as an option.

The AT468 also includes full integration of STI's field-proven powerful Integra Vision inspection system providing 2D & 3D  inspection for leaded & leadless packages along with optional top & bottom PVI inspection, topside mark inspection, and side inspections making it a true six side inspection system. In-Pocket inspection & Post-seal inspection available as options. 

The AT468 also features STI's latest icon based GUI which is accessible via a touch screen providing an easy to use, simple and efficient operator interface.

IC63 Component Counter

***Please note that this product is temporarily unavailable***

Prevent a stock shortage and line-down situation by using the IC63 Component Counter to verify exact stock quantities of all your reeled components.

The IC63 Component Counter allows you to accurately count taped components in an effective and efficient manner without inducing damage to the components or carrier tape. Counting can also be performed in both winding directions.

In addition to its primary function as a component counter, the IC63 can also be simultaneously used to assist with the visual inspection of the components in tape and the quality of the tape seal if desired while winding the tape from reel to reel.

  • Bi-directional counting, will subtract count when the direction of the tape is reversed.
  • Tape pitch from 2mm upwards, ideal for counting 0201, 0402 etc.
  • Accurate counting of all components in embossed (black or clear) & punched (paper and plastic) carrier tape.
  • Reel widths from 8mm to 72mm.
  • Simple operator interface simplifies pitch setting.
  • Makes an ideal tape inspection platform in addition to its counting function.
  • Standard configuration allows 7”, 13” and 15” diameter reels to be counted. Standard 22” reels can be accommodated when optional extension arms are fitted.
  • Rigid metal construction with a wide, sturdy base.
  • The IC63 includes a wrist strap connection point allowing ESD protection when handling static sensitive components.
  • Reel spindles are mounted on bearings for smooth, durable operation.
  • Accepts tape pockets up to 20mm deep, ideal for large connectors etc
  • Portable and easy to use

Optional Function
    • Empty Pocket Detection - Includes: Optical Sensor which looks through pocket centre hole, On/Off Switch, Audible Buzzer, Red Panel LED Indicator & Reset Switch.

Vacuum Packaging Equipment

Reel Service offer a flexible range of vacuum packaging machines that may be configured for a variety of industries, from semiconductors & electronics to food industry standards. To protect parts in storage or transport these machines vacuum package and heat seal to provide optimum atmospheric conditions for product preservation.

To provide ESD (Electro Static Discharge) protection, our range of vacuum packaging machines can be specified with an ESD option (certified to DIN EN 61340-5-1:2001) to ensure that ESD sensitive components, assemblies and PCB’s are vacuum packed within a static safe environment.

PlusVac26 Vacuum Packaging Machine

When used with appropriate barrier bags, vacuum packaging protects bag contents against physical damage, dust, ultra violet radiation (UV), radio frequency (RF) contamination, ESD, humidity, oxidisation and corrosion.

All machines are compatible with antistatic aluminium foil type moisture barrier bags.
