Packaging Reels > 13” LOKREEL® Trimline Component Packaging Reels

If price is a key concern Advantek’s patented LOKREEL® Trimline plastic injection-molded packaging reels are a great option. LOKREEL® Trimline packaging reels are constructed using less plastic material per reel, resulting in a lower cost than our premium LOKREEL® Pro series. LOKREEL® Trimline reels offer an excellent balance between structural integrity, lower weight and lower cost.

  • 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 a single molded assembled reel
  • Halves configuration offers flexibility in managing the different reel widths needed during production—from 8mm to 32mm
  • Reels assemble with simple twisting motion, requiring no gluing or fasteners


Advantek LOKREEL® Trimline reels have an outer diameter of 13” (330mm) and a 1/2” (13mm) diameter arbor hole. The hub diameter is 4” (102mm), suitable for most carrier tapes. Reel halves are available in hub widths of 4mm, 8mm, and 16mm, which combine to produce reels for EIA standard carrier tape widths from 8mm to 32mm. The table below demonstrates LOKREEL® Trimline half combinations and the reel widths they produce.
