Argosy provides much more than just servicing. We also provide materials for your own needs. Argosy Industries designs and manufactures carrier tape at our corporate headquarters in Freemont CA. Argosy carrier tape is manufactured using MS carrier stock. This carrier stock is a styrenic allo that provides excellent electrical and mechanical properties.
If you send us a few devices along with an outline drawing of the device you want on carrier tape, our in-house machine shop can custom design tooling for use on any of our 13 carrier tape manufacturing machines in just 4 to 5 days. This means you can have carrier tape for production runs in your facility in about one week.
Argosy not only designs custom pockets, but we also have and use all of the industry standard package types. SOJ, SOIC, QFP TSOP. You name a package type and most likely we have a pocket already available. In our tape and reel service we use our own Argosy carrier tape, which allows us to reduce costs and not rely on vendors to supply us with carrier material. This means you don't have to wait for your product to be completed.
If your company is doing all of its own tape and reel servicing, give us a call and request out carrier tape open tooling list. This list will provide all the critical dimensions for our carrier tape. If the pocket you need is not abailable, give us a call and we will be happy to send you a tooling cost quote. we are confident that the quality, cost, and delivery of our material will make you want to use Argosy carrier tapes.
Argosy's embossed carrier tapes offer superior protection for surface mount devices from electrostatic discharge (ESD) and mechanical damage. Made from the revolutionary new HMS-1013C styrenic alloy. Our carrier tape is tough and rigid without being brittle. Electrically this unique plastic compound further protects components from ESD damage by "dissipation" and "buffering" static charges away from components.
