Abstract

A high tack tape is used to remove backer or liner material fr double sided tape which has been cut and stuck to a continuous strip workpiece, e.g. lead frames. This backer removal is done just prior to attaching a part (e.g., a semiconductor chip) to the exposed adhesive on the continuous strip workpiece.
