COT Introduces New ezLOAD flex Adjustable Height Board Support System

Apr 21, 2012

 ezLOAD flex Adjustable Height Board Support System

Count On Tools Inc. (COT), a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, introduces the new ezLOAD flex PCB Support System. With the recent increase in densely populated double-sided circuit boards, COT recognized the need for more affordable board support options in the electronics manufacturing industry. The end result is an innovative design that is not only easy to set up and install, but also offers industry-leading benefits to EMS companies and contract manufacturers worldwide.

The ezLOAD flex PCB Support System from COT features an adjustable base that allows the user to extend the height of the support block to accommodate thinner boards or decrease the height to allow for larger components on the underside of the board. Simply turn the wheel to raise or lower the module to the desired height. Measuring marks are laser engraved on the side post to allow the user to see the exact height of the block in 0.5 mm increments. The design features an extruded aluminum base and soft, ESD-safe foam fingers. The ezLOAD system not only reduces changeover times, but also improves product build quality, increases revenues by providing significant cost savings and can eliminate component damage during the assembly process.

COT’s ezLOAD PAD features active grip technology to securely hold boards during the assembly process. It protects components while allowing the boards to move freely through the assembly line and is ESD-safe. With the basic universal design, there are no mechanical functions to fail. The system requires no air, electronics or communication from the user. The magnetic locking base enables a quick, easy installation. Other base designs are available for nonmagnetic tables. Most importantly, the ezLOAD PCB Support System is affordable compared to competitive products on the market.

The ezLOAD PCB Support System is compatible with any SMT equipment, from pick-and-place to chip shooters, screen printers, dispensers, AOI and more.  It is extremely durable due to the soft, flexible design, and is proven to be reliable after testing in the most hazardous conditions. The ezLOAD flex system is available in the following stock sizes: 53-71 mm, 72-90 mm, 91-109 mm, 110-128 mm and 129-147 mm. The ezLOAD PCB Support System is customizable depending on machine requirements, specialized components or specific design application requirements.
