Also highlighted at the show is the expanded exLOAD series. The ezLOAD XL PCB Support System offers customers building larger boards the option of a custom built ezLOAD board support for their specific application. The design can be customized for any length and width combination. In most cases, it also is adjustable for multiple applications. The horizontal posts can be unlocked and replaced with longer or shorter ones to accommodate other board sizes. The design features an extruded aluminum base and soft, ESD-safe foam fingers. The ezLOAD system not only reduces changeover times, but also improves product build quality, increases revenues by providing significant cost savings and eliminates component damage during the assembly process.
Along with the ezLOAD series, Count On Tools will be unveiling their new StripFeeder .mod (Modular) System. The Stripfeeder .mod System features removable rails that can be re-positioned on the base plate. The rails align with precision pin locaters and lock down tightly with magnets to guarantee a stable, repeatable application. The innovative design holds the components securely in the machined tracks to prevent parts from being miss-picked, flipped in the pocket, or lost. The StripFeeder .mod system is built to JEDEC-standards and size specifications to allow the unit to be utilized in most types of SMT equipment or JEDEC-style tray feeder units. This model can handle both paper and emboss tape, simultaneously. It is quick to assemble and install in the machine and provides fast changeover between product runs without unloading from the machine. It is perfect for low volume, high mix or prototyping applications. Save thousands of dollars over customized feeders.
