EDEN PRAIRIE, Minnesota, USA. 19 April 2018—Advantek, Inc., the world’s leading provider of precision component packaging systems, recently added an enhanced packaging reel to their advanced line of products. The new reel is economical and stronger than the previous generation—confidently designed to package and protect all types of components.
The newly released product is an improved 13-inch Trimline LOKREEL®. The reel is an enhanced version of Advantek’s previous Trimline reel—offering a variety of new features.
