Next Generation Carrier Tape Management

Formed in 2003, Adaptsys Group is a technology company that provides high end Tape and Reeling solutions into a wide range of industries and with strategically located offices our support network extends across the globe. In recent years Adaptsys’ highly motivated and skilled team have been focusing their expertise on developing the Re-flex II “On Demand” Carrier Tape Forming System, which is able to cater for tape widths ranging from 12mm to 88mm and form pocket depths of up to 30mm. With an updated S/W release providing an enhanced user experience, the latest modification to the Re-flex II highlights the system's usability.


  • Re-flex II
    Re-flex II by Adaptsys is a simple but effective way of producing carrier tape pockets in-house. By replacing the high cost of purchasing pre-formed carrier tape, a Return on Investment can be achieved within one year....

  • The Re-flex II Carrier Tape Forming system has a number of features that set it aside from other tape forming systems – in addition to the system’s unique functionality of outputting directly into the device placement process (On-demand), the Re-flex II can now form pockets up to 30mm in depth on tape widths from 12mm to 88mm. This range means that all standard and the majority of custom pocket requirements can be covered. In addition to this flexibility, a considerable amount of attention has been paid to streamlining tooling changeover. Recent modifications now mean moving between pockets types can be achieved within 3 minutes - when working to tight time schedules in a pressured production environment, this unrivalled speed can prove invaluable. With an updated software release providing an enhanced user experience, the latest modification highlights the system's usability.

  • IS-300
    IS-300 Vision Inspection on the TM-50 manual taping system from V-TEK International....

  • Traceability and quality validation are now possible on all TM-50 taping machines with the IS-300 inspection system from Adaptsys. Available on new systems or as a simple field upgrade option, the IS-300 provides part inspection checks for orientation, presence, mark and colour. In addition to the standard IS-300 assembly, an optional second sensor can be included to check cover tape bond and ensure integrity of both the outer and inner seal.

  • Tri-laminate PS-ABS-PS Carrier Tape from Adaptsys

    ‘Re-flex On-Demand Tape’ - Embossed Carrier Tape from Adaptsys: for the purpose of providing a reliable and safe packaging media for volume production of mechanical parts, components and semi-conductor devices. 

    Most importantly, Adaptsys Carrier Tape is produced using premium quality material within strict production guidelines, ensuring a strong and consistent form on every pocket created. The tri-layer material used for the Adaptsys Carrier Tape forming process comprises Polystyrene, Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene and Polystyrene. This becomes pliable under the application of heat, providing the required state for forming – in turn, as the material returns to the ambient temperature, the result is a rigid, protective pocket. 

    PS-ABS-PS offers improved dimensional stability and increased strength over conventional polystyrene, making it a suitable material for many mechanical applications. Due to its static dissipative properties, a safe environment can be provided for components/devices where ESD sensitivity is a consideration. 

    For the forming process of this material, Adaptsys have developed a system that reduces cost whilst still providing a consistent pocket every time.  With the integration of vision, each pocket formed can be inspected and scrutinised for any imperfection, thus providing a robust tracking system capable of complete traceability and reporting. 

    As manufacturing takes place within the UK, this means not only that the highest quality standards are met (as defined in standard EIA418), but also that fast lead times, lower shipping costs and, ultimately, a more competitively priced product can be achieved compared to competing manufacturers. 

    Custom Carrier Tapes can be designed and produced within a very short time frame, providing the customer with a turnkey solution that fits within a pressured production environment – where deadlines are always critical. 

    By working closely with the customer, the Adaptsys design team can develop the right Carrier Tape  using the component dimensions to ensure the pocket topography provides an exact fit, the required protection can be met for transportation and storage and, crucially, the production of a media that lends itself to automation – a requirement increasingly being demanded by a growing number of industries, from Automotive, Aerospace + Defence through to Medical and Electronics.
