Count On Tools, Inc. (COT), a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, received great customer feedback at the recent IPC APEX EXPO. The company exhibited its new refreshed look for the first time and received many quality leads from prospective customers with special interest in the MYDATA Feeder Repair Kits. COT also used the show as a platform to launch the QWIKTRAY program to the U.S. market and celebrate the company’s 25-year anniversary.
Each MYDATA Feeder Repair Kit includes: a precision machined aluminum side cover plate with cover tape plow pre-installed, a new spring, and matching screws for re-assembly. The new MYDATA Feeder Repair Kits can be installed by the customer, eliminating the need for worn / damaged feeders to be sent in to Count On Tools for repair.
This is the only repair option for these feeders on the market and provides significant cost savings in comparison to purchasing replacement feeders. With each broken feeder, customers are throwing away money. Thanks to the introduction of the new Feeder Repair Kits, customers can expect much higher durability combined with significant cost savings and reduced waste.
The new QWIKTRAY system has been developed to provide low-cost, custom matrix trays for many types of electronic components. The QWIKTRAY platform allows surface mount components to be picked up in a repeatable method when tape-and-reel is not available and standard JEDEC trays do not exists. Customers no longer have to place these components by hand.
The QWIKTRAY program provides rapid turnaround on the design and production of any quantity of custom matrix trays. Standard lead time is 7-10 days with optional expedited service in as little as 24-48 hours (additional charges may apply). The system is designed for any application requirements, from prototype to high-volume processes. With the QWIKTRAY platform, there is one flat fee per tray with no minimum orders and no additional charges for design, programing, molds, setup, etc. Volume discounts also are available.
Other product lines that were showcased at the event included COT’s growing line of automation handling tools, such as the recently expanded Stripfeeder system and ezLOAD board supports. The standard SMT nozzle product range also was displayed along with a broad assortment of custom nozzle designs for odd-form components and LEDs.
