EMC Pellet Aspect Ratio

Customers often ask what is the max­i­mum aspect ratio (Pel­let Height or Length / Pel­let Diam­e­ter) of epoxy mold­ing com­pound (EMC). While this varies from man­u­fac­tur­er to man­u­fac­tur­er, the rea­son for the max­i­mum aspect ratio is to pre­vent pel­lets from crack­ing or dam­ag­ing dur­ing trans­porta­tion.

For an 18mm Diam­e­ter Pel­let the Max­i­mum Aspect Ratio is: 1.63

This means that the Max­i­mum Pel­let Height for an 18mm diam­e­ter pel­let is 29.4mm. Of course, short­er pel­lets are ok, but 29.4mm is the max­i­mum height.
