The newly redesigned StripFeeder Trays now feature reusable adhesive layers on the tracks to securely hold down tape-and-reel during the assembly process.

Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, announces improvements to its revolutionary StripFeeder Trays for loading tape-and-reel components onto compact modules for prototyping and high-mix low-volume applications.
 
The newly redesigned StripFeeder Trays now feature reusable adhesive layers on the tracks to securely hold down tape-and-reel during the assembly process. This prevents components from being disturbed by the pick-and-place action of the equipment and provides a nonviolent system for fragile components or loose packaging. In-house testing proved that the adhesive is effective even after hundreds of installations with the tape-and-reel components. Also, the adhesive can be removed and replaced after it is worn out.
 
The new StripFeeder Trays are a cost-effective way to load many components in the machine without having to purchase expensive feeders. The quick-to-assemble, easy-to-install modules are designed for quick loading of tape-and-reel components on existing SMT pick-and-place equipment with fiducial markers for alignment.
 
The trays are available for tape ranging from 8 to 72 mm wide with many predesigned configurations to choose from as well as fully customizable widths and pitches based on process requirements. Additionally, the trays enable fast changeover between product runs without unloading from the machine.
 
The StripFeeder Trays are compatible with both paper and emboss tape simultaneously, and are ideal for low-volume, high-mix applications and prototyping. The trays are compatible with any style SMT pick-and-place equipment or JEDEC-style tray feeders.
