The Horizontal Stacked Tube Feeders (HTFs) are high volume, high speed component feeding systems that are capable of feeding a variety of components, ranging from SMT devices to odd-form components. They feed components directly from the shipping magazines/tubes, or from in-process handling tubes. The tubes are stacked in the feeder horizontally. The components are pushed out of the bottom tube and to the pickup point by a pusher tape. HTFs automatically eject the empty tube and index the next tube into the feeding position.
