Component counters that handle all part sizes - even 01005s - and detect missing parts while deducting them from the grand total are now available at www.manncorp.com. According to CEO Henry Mann, "the site includes hand-held and motorized versions with features and functions that greatly increase usability."
He cited a model that counts SMDs as well as through-hole axial and radial parts. Another version includes a bar code reader and scanner plus a label printer that outputs quantity, lot number, company name and bar code. "This is vital information for inventory control and pre-kitting," the CEO added.
He also referred to a low-cost hand-held counting device called "Spot Check:" that counts SMDs directly on the pick and place. "At only $389, this device easily pays for itself," he added. For details, access Manncorp Counters.
