Annoying process to remove carton strip component
« on: November 13, 2018, 11:14:26 am »
Hello,

When I bought a new components and these come stuck in the card strip I can never remove them without:

1-warp one of the pins;
2-the pins stick with glue and card;

Exist any magic way to remove the carton strip component?  |O ;D (https://snag.gy/ncl4dP.jpg)

Thanks
Best Regards

I don't claim to have had your problem. Just pulling the component directly out from the side usually works for me.

The obvious solution for your pictured case is to simply cut the pins at the tape. They'll still be long enough to insert in the pcb.

If the card strip is new I can simply pulling the component. But the carton is older and be a little "wet" I have this problem...

The solution where I cut the pins looks good to me!  ;D

Posted same question some a while ago, got zero answers :(, it seem that nothing is able to soften whatever glue they've put on the carrier tape once is dry, it's an  >:D glue.

It's called "Ammo Pack". The components aren't supposed to be torn off the strip.
Usually the leads get cut at the edge, and the rest of the leads remains on the strip. Most usually done with some kind of (semi) automatic machinery.

It makes totally perfect sense! I had never thought about it!
Thanks

Cutting the leads also avoids the other problem .... glue residue.

Even when the component can easily be pulled out of the strip, there can still be glue residue left on the leads.  Most of the time this isn't a problem as the leads are pushed through the hole and the residue is well clear of the soldering zone, but sometimes Murphy will find a way for it to annoy you.  Cutting this part off eliminates that problem.

This is something I have found with banded TH resistors.  Resistors are easier to clean up - but not having to waste the time and materials to do so makes a lot more sense - especially as most of the lead usually gets cut off anyway.
