parts, will exhibit in Booth #1613 at the 2018 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take
place Feb. 27 through March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center in

- Standard Nozzles: COT’s catalog of products includes
standard nozzle and tooling replacement parts for the top OEM’s, including
Fuji, Panasonic, Mycronic, Yamaha, Hanwha/Samsung, Juki, Hitachi, and more. The
team at COT understands that customers often have more than just one OEM’s
range of machines. Therefore, the company tries to offer as wide a range of SMT
nozzles and consumables as possible so that you can keep your supplier bases to
a minimum. Recent price restructuring also means more cost savings for
customers. COT’s has planned to showcase new SMT nozzle lines for the Fuji NXT
machines with the H04S, H08M, & H24 heads as well as nozzles for
Hanwha/Samsung Excen machines.

manufacturing flexibility to develop custom engineered solutions to satisfy
your individual process requirements. With more than 25 years of experience on
multiple machine platforms, COT’s team has the professional expertise to solve

connectors, switches, push buttons, pins, clips, heavy, over-sized, and more.
There is no limit to COT’s capabilities when it comes to automating your custom
component processes. Thanks to our recent $2Million expansion project, COT has
increased its manufacturing capabilities across all divisions of the company.
- Component Handling Products: COT offers several styles of
component handling trays based on industry proven specifications and the unique
requirements of each product. These include the Stripfeeder Platform and the
QWIKTRAY systems. Application requirements such as temperature and chemical
exposure, manufacturing processes, mechanical and electrical constraints are
factors that are combined with operation considerations including production
volumes, build costs, total estimated usage and process control. From off the
shelf kits to custom built tray products, rest assured that COT has the right
fit for your next job.
- Automation Tooling Products: As a design and manufacturing company, COT specializes in developing solutions. The focus of the company’s development projects has been on improving the methods of assembly of printed circuit boards. Every aspect of this process can benefit from automation tooling. Customers come to COT with problems that they experience, such as having to hand place odd-form components, repairing worn/damaged feeders, or developing universal board supports, like the ezLOAD series. COT’s team sees every opportunity as a challenge to prove that they are capable of producing solutions at every level of the SMT assembly process, especially nozzles and tooling. The technology that COT has developed over the years has allowed the company to design and manufacture custom engineered tooling for any process in the SMT industry.
