KT 5000 peel force tester for carrier tapes
KT5000 peel force tester for carrier tapes

The peel force is a critical parameter for every user of Tape & Reel. If the peel force is too low, the cover tape will not stick on the carrier tape properly and the components may fall out of the pockets. A too high peel force will cause costly down times at the pick & place machines.

The KT 5000 peel force tester from K-TECH is the ideal tool to measure the peel force on your production floor. For measuring, a strip of the carrier tape is loaded into the KT 5000 and the cover tape is attached to the sensor. The constant movement of the carrier tape is done with a sprocket wheel. The movement speed is controlled with an encoder. The design of the KT 5000 guarantees the same peel angle and the same peel point during the whole measurement. Before each run, the KT 5000 is doing a self-calibration of the sensor.

The measured values are transferred to a PC via a serial RS232 interface. A green bar on the screen shows a good result, if the measurement is out of limit, the bar is red. Each measurement can be stored in a file. In addition the most important values of each measurement (e.g. min., max., average, standard deviation…) are saved in a separate file and can be used for statistic process control.
