Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, introduces the latest version of its revolutionary StripFeeder System for loading tape-and-reel components onto compact modules for prototyping and high-mix/low-volume applications.
The new Modular StripFeeder now features adjustable rails to accommodate a wide array of components in the same feeder. Unlike the fixed width version, the modular StripFeeder can be adjusted by unlocking the rails and sliding them to the desired width. The innovative design holds the components securely in the 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 120 mm tape width, and larger in some cases.
The new StripFeeder systems 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. 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. Additionally, the trays are compatible with any style SMT pick-and-place equipment or JEDEC-style tray feeders.
