Solder Spheres and Preforms


Tape and Reel

Caplinq offers a wide range of solder spheres and preforms on tape and reel for different applications. We can pack all kinds of solder sphere alloys in various diameters in 7" and 13" reels.

Those tape and reels are compatible with most pick and place feeders. Need a specific alloy or preform? Then feel free to contact us for more information. Keep in mind that the minimum order quantities for non existing products will be high.

When using solder spheres in integrated circuits (IC’s) the production process can require a very precise amount and placement of the solder material. IC’s are made in high volumes through an automated process and the different components that are part of the IC are placed using a pick and place machine. Examples of packaging techniques that use solder spheres in the production of IC’s are ball grid arrays (PBGA, CBGA, TBGA and µBGA) and flip chips (C4).

To be able to use our solder spheres in these high volume, automated processes we can package your solder spheres on tape and reel. Our tape and reel solder spheres can be used on almost all existing pick and place tape feeders, which means you can keep using your existing pick and place equipment to ensure your solder material is placed with the right speed and precision. Our tapes and reel packaging service is available for all solder sphere sizes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have any Alloy on Tape and Reel?

Generally yes. As long as we are not talking about very small or very large solder spheres then we should be able to package your Alloy into a tape and reel. Custom orders will naturally have a high MOQ so contact us if you need more than 5 reels. We most likely have the alloy that you are looking for and we can quote you individually but we can also offer tape and reel as a service and package your spheres for you.

How many spheres can I have into a reel?

This depends on the sphere size. Smaller ones tend to be packed in 10.000 reels while larger ones are usually 4.000. It varies very much (tape width 7" - 13" also has an effect) so this is something that we will advise on a per case basis. And no we cannot provide other reel widths. Only 7" and 13", which are compatible with most pick and place machines.
