Count On Tools Offers Urethane Nozzle Series for Ultra-Smooth Components

Aug 28, 2012

 Urethane Nozzle Series for Ultra-Smooth Components

 Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts,  announces a breakthrough in custom nozzle engineering for ultra-smooth components from the semiconductor market. The latest series of nozzles feature precision-machined urethane tips that prevent components with very fine surface finishes, such as bare dies and wafer level components, from getting stuck on the nozzle tip during the pick-and-place process.

Count On Tools’ new technology utilizes an exclusive urethane material to create a strong vacuum bond with components and is guaranteed to improve placement accuracy and reliability while overcoming sticking issues with the substrate. Additionally, the new material improves component release onto the board, preventing misplaced parts, lost components, or miss-picks. This design has been tested and proven against other materials commonly used in SMT tooling (such as PCD or diamond, ceramic and tool steel) that can cause the components to become bonded to the nozzle tip.

Count On Tools’ Urethane nozzle series can be applied to any style of pick-and-place nozzle for any OEM or machine type. Additionally, Count On Tools can generally provide a finished nozzle within three to five days, saving customers up to 50 percent over OEM designs for custom nozzles. There are no design fees and Count On Tools provides free quotes based on the equipment and type of component being placed.

All nozzles are guaranteed to function properly with the original equipment. Every nozzle manufactured by Count On Tools comes standard with a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. If any customer is not 100 percent satisfied with the performance or quality of a product, Count On Tools will replace it or offer a full refund.

According to Curt Couch, President of Count On Tools, Inc., “Our company understands that in order for our customers to remain competitive in today’s market, they must be able to cut costs while simultaneously maximizing the capabilities of their existing SMT assembly equipment to prevent costly investments in new equipment or increased labor from hand placements of odd-form components. This line of urethane nozzles allows us to help customers achieve better placement with odd-form components.”


Count On Tools Inc., a precision component manufacturer specializing in all aspects of the machining industry, has been setting new performance standards in the SMT pick-and-place nozzle market since 1991. As the ORIGINAL source for high-quality, low-cost vacuum placement nozzles and associated consumables, they have pioneered with world-class development and process engineers that combine to ensure that innovation and competitiveness is applied to all of its extensive product range.
