Count On Tools, Inc. to Debut StripFeeder Precision Rails for Micro-Components at APEX

Mar 09, 2016

Count On Tools, Inc. (COT), a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, has released a new accessory – the Precision Rails – for its award-winning line of StripFeeder products. The StripFeeder Precision Rails enable customers to take full advantage of the StripFeeder platform when running micro-components such as 0201s, 01005s and 03015s in 4 mm or 8 mm tape (paper or emboss).

Each StripFeeder Precision rail features machined lanes based on industry tape standards to securely hold the tape in place during the pick-and-place operation. With the additional support underneath the tape, the microscopic components do not see the violent movement as with some feeder systems. Ball detents located on one end of the rail hold the tape in place by the sprocket hole for part registration and repeatable pick-and-place applications. This means the user only has to teach the pick-up location one time and consistently reload the unit with the same parts over and over for longer runs.

Each StripFeeder Precision rail is designed to work seamlessly with current StripFeeder products and allow other standard 0.25" (6 mm) rails to be used on each side to increase lane capacity for prototyping to high volume production runs.

The StripFeeder system is compatible with most types of SMT equipment. The StripFeeder systems are a cost-effective way to load many components, including odd-form and custom components, without having to purchase expensive feeders. The quick-to-assemble, easy-to-install modules are designed for rapid 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 Precision Rails will be displayed for the first time at the IPC APEX EXPO in Las Vegas this March. Customers can stop by the Count On Tools booth (#2801) to see the new product.For more information about Count On Tools’ products and services, visit www.cotinc.com.
