In electronic parts, a reel refers to a plastic or metal disc for packaging and storing parts.
Reels are used to automatically feed parts in SMT (Surface Mount Technology) processes.
Reels come in a variety of sizes and types for holding parts, and there are many different types depending on the size and material of each part.
In general, reels of electronic components are made of metal or plastic materials, and plastic reels are especially popular because they are economical and lightweight.
A reel consists of a series of holes or slots in which one part is packed.
Due to this configuration, the reel protects the parts, is packaged, and is convenient for use in automated feeding processes.
