Packaging Reels > 13” LOKREEL® Lite Component Packaging Reels

Advantek’s patented LOKREEL® Lite plastic injection-molded packaging reels are an exceptional choice where price is a key concern. LOKREEL® Lite reels are designed to achieve a combination of structural integrity, lower weight and lower cost than the premium reels. The LOKREEL® Lite is built with the same durable hub structure as the premium LOKREEL® Pro and the high-impact molded polystrene offers exceptional protections to devices. The flanges have larger windows to reduce the amount of plastic used and yet still support up to three labels as large as 4” x 5.5” (102mm x 140mm) each.

  • Shipped in halves to decrease shipping costs by up to 70%
  • “Nest-stacked,” high-density packing reduces needed storage space by as much as 60% when compared with the one-piece molded assembled reel
  • Halves confi guration offers fl exibility in managing the different reel widths needed during production—from 8mm to 56mm
  • Reels assemble with simple twisting motion, requiring no gluing or fasteners


Advantek LOKREEL® Lite reels have an outer diameter of 13” (330mm) and a 1/2” (13mm) diameter arbor hole. The hub diameters are 4” (102mm) and 7” (178mm) suitable for most carrier tapes. Reel halves are available in a variety of hub widths from 4mm, 8mm, 16mm and 28mm, and combining of any two widths would produce a reel for EIA standard carrier tape with width of 8mm, 12mm, 16mm, 24mm, 32mm, 44mm or 56mm. The table below demonstrates LOKREEL® Lite half combinations and the reel widths they produce.
