Title: CARRIER TAPE HAVING ANTI-NESTING FEATURES
Abstract:
A flexible carrier tape (100) is disclosed. The carrier tape (100) includes a plurality of spaced apart pockets (120) formed in the flexible substrate (110) along the longitudinal axis (102) of the carrier tape (100). Each pocket (120) includes a main pocket (130) defining a main pocket cavity (131) shaped and dimensioned to receive and store the component (101). At least one of the pockets (120) further includes at least one side pocket (141) that is contiguous with the main pocket cavity (131). The side pocket (140) has a bottom outside surface (142b) that extends at least as far below the substrate (110) as the bottom outside surface (132b) of the corresponding main pocket cavity (131). The side pocket cavity (141) is shaped and dimensioned so as to neither receive nor store the pre-determined component (101).
