Count On Tools, Inc. Develops StripFeeder Precision Plate Systems

Posted by Z.Shook on 2/15/2016 to Event News

Count On Tools, Inc. (COT), a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, has added a new product – the Precision Plate – to its award-winning line of StripFeeder systems. The StripFeeder Precision Plate allows customers to run high capacity lanes of micro components, such as 0201s, 01005s and 03015s in 4mm or 8mm tape (paper or emboss), on a single plate.

The StripFeeder Precision Plate features machined lanes based on industry tape standards to securely hold the tape in place during the pick-and-place operation. With the additional support underneath the tape, the microscopic components do not see the violent movement as with some feeder systems. Ball detents located on one end of the rail hold the tape in place by the sprocket hole for part registration and repeatable pick-and-place applications. This means the user only has to teach the pick-up location one time and consistently reload the unit with the same parts over and over for longer runs.

Each StripFeeder Precision Plate is custom made with several stock sizes available in common JEDEC and OEM tray sizes. Each is designed to run all 8mm lanes, all 4mm lanes, or a combination of the two depending on the customer’s specific application

The StripFeeder system is compatible with most types of SMT equipment. The StripFeeder systems are a cost-effective way to load many components, including odd-form and custom components, without having to purchase expensive feeders. The quick-to-assemble, easy-to-install modules are designed for rapid loading of tape-and-reel components on existing SMT pick-and-place equipment. Additionally, the trays enable fast changeover between product runs without unloading from the machine.

The StripFeeder Precision Plate will be displayed for the first time at the IPC APEX EXPO in Las Vegas this March. Customers can stop by the Count On Tools booth (#2801) to see the new product.

Count On Tools Inc. Will Debut New StripFeeder Lightweight Rails at APEX

Posted by Z.Shook on 2/12/2016 to Event News

Count On Tools, Inc. (COT), a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, has released a new accessory – the Lightweight Rails – for its award-winning line of StripFeeder products. The StripFeeder Lightweight Rails enable customers to take full advantage of the StripFeeder platform when operating in OEM tray towers with weight limits on tray capacity. The skeletonized design reduces carrier tray weight by 40-50 percent. StripFeeder Lightweight Rails are available in 0.25" (6mm), 0.50" (12mm), 0.75" (19mm), and 1.125" (28mm) pocket depths.

All StripFeeder .mod and Mini systems feature removable rails that can be mounted to accommodate a wide array of tape sizes in the same feeder. Unlike fixed width tape carrier trays, the StripFeeder can be adjusted by removing the rails and re-positioning them on the base plate at the desired width (4mm pitched pattern). The rails align with precision pin locaters and lock down tightly with magnets to guarantee a stable, repeatable application. All StripFeeder Lightweight Rails also feature a mechanical lock-spring to hold the tape in place by the sprocket hole for part registration and repeatable pick-and-place applications. This means the user only has to teach the pick-up location one time and consistently reload the unit with the same parts over and over for longer runs.

This innovative rail design holds the components securely in the machined tracks to prevent parts from being miss-picked, flipped in the pocket or lost. Customers also can remove rails to accommodate larger components up to 120mm tape width. The StripFeeder system is compatible with most types of SMT equipment. The StripFeeder systems are a cost-effective way to load many components, including odd-form and custom components, without having to purchase expensive feeders. The quick-to-assemble, easy-to-install modules are designed for rapid loading of tape-and-reel components on existing SMT pick-and-place equipment.

This means the user only has to teach the pick-up location one time and consistently reload the unit with the same parts over and over for longer runs.

Each StripFeeder Precision rail is designed to work seamlessly with current StripFeeder products and allow other standard 0.25" (6mm) rails to be used on each side to increase lane capacity for prototyping to high volume production runs.

The StripFeeder system is compatible with most types of SMT equipment. The StripFeeder systems are a cost-effective way to load many components, including odd-form and custom components, without having to purchase expensive feeders.

Count On Tools Inc. Introduces the StripFeeder Lightweight Kit

Posted by Z.Shook on 2/1/2016 to Event News

Count On Tools, Inc. (COT), a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, has released a new version in its award-winning line of StripFeeder products – the StripFeeder Lightweight. Increased demand for use of the StripFeeder platform in OEM automated tray towers prompted the need for a low-mass version to accommodate machine weight limits on tray capacity. The StripFeeder Lightweight system allows customers to take advantage of the StripFeeder platform in these specific applications.

The StripFeeder Lightweight includes six skeletonized rails and COT’s new low-mass base plate. The skeletonized design reduces carrier tray weight by 40-50 percent. StripFeeder Lightweight Rails are available for in 0.25" (6mm), 0.50" (12mm), 0.75" (19mm), and 1.125" (28mm) pocket depths.
