Posted by Z.Shook on 8/31/2017 to Count On Tools News

Count On Tools, Inc. (COT), a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, is pleased to announce that it has reduced pricing on the QWIKTRAY system from $699.00 to $499.00 each, with even lower prices on higher volumes. Thanks to further development of the manufacturing process and reduced materials costs, COT was able to provide significant cost savings on the new system. The new pricing took effect July 14th, 2017.

The QWIKTRAY platform was developed to provide low-cost, custom matrix trays for many types of electronic components. The QWIKTRAY platform allows surface mount components to be picked up in a repeatable method when tape-and-reel is not available and standard JEDEC trays do not exists. Customers no longer have to place these components by hand.

Utilizing the latest in machining and additive manufacturing technologies, QWIKTRAY will develop a custom pocket design matched to your component specifications and machine it into a finished matrix tray. QWIKTRAYs can be designed for almost any component, including QFP, BGA, hybrid, assemblies, sockets, pins, connectors, LEDs, switches, buttons, transformers and more.

Each QWIKTRAY is CNC machined to the specific configuration for your component and ships ready to load and install in the equipment. Each QWIKTRAY includes CAD drawings, containing pocket dimensions, first part location, spacing, and other programing details. QWIKTRAYs come standard in non-ESD black acrylic (ESD-safe and other materials are optional).

The QWIKTRAY program provides rapid turnaround on the design and production of any quantity of custom matrix trays. Standard lead time is 5-7 days with optional expedited service in as little as 24-48 hours (additional charges may apply). The system is designed for any application requirements, from prototype to high-volume processes. With the QWIKTRAY platform, there is one flat fee per tray with no minimum orders and no additional charges for design, programing, molds, setup, etc. Volume discounts also are available.
