Count On Tools Offers Custom SMT Nozzles for CREE® LEDs

May 11, 2010

GAINESVILLE, GA - Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, introduces its new series of custom SMT pick-and-place nozzles for CREE® LED components. This new series is manufacturer-approved, based on CREE Inc.'s strict requirements and specifications.

By working closely with the component manufacturer, Count On Tools guarantees secure picking of all fragile components and accurate placement on the circuit board. The company’s line of custom SMT nozzles was developed for the following CREE XLamp® LEDs: MP-L Easy White, MX-6, XP-G, XP-E, XP-C, XR-E, XR-C, MC-E, 4550 and XR.

CREE LEDs are unique because they require special handling operations to prevent damage to the optical lens. Count On Tools’ SMT nozzle designs for CREE LEDs avoid placing mechanical stress on the LED lens by not touching the optical surface during component picking or placement processes. This eliminates the possibility of degraded performance from the LED after the circuit board is assembled.

Joshua Markle, Applications Technical Associate for CREE Inc., commented, “I have been working with Count On Tools for the past year, and in this time they have gone above and beyond expectations with the construction of the pick-and-place tooling that CREE recommends in our documentation. CREE is a leader in the manufacturing of LEDs for the solid state lighting industry. We have released multiple products in the past year and Count on Tools has helped to provide a proper pick-and-place tool to be used with CREE products. They have provided outstanding service with an amazing turnaround time during the development of the tooling. I would recommend the work that Count On Tools provides to anyone looking for a quality pick-and-place tool with knowledgeable, friendly and expedient service.”

COT Marketing Director Zachery Shook said, “Count On Tools 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 SMT assembly equipment to prevent costly investments in new equipment or increased labor from hand placements of odd-form components. This new line of custom LED nozzles allows us to help customers achieve better placements with odd-form components in their machines while saving them money.”

Count On Tools’ custom SMT nozzle designs for CREE LEDs can be applied to any style of pick-and-place nozzle for any OEM or machine type (including, but not limited to: Assembleon, Fuji, Juki, Mirae, MYDATA, Panasonic, Samsung, Quad, Siemens, Universal, etc.). Count On Tools can provide a finished nozzle within one to two days of receiving component samples or specification documents, and can save customers up to 50 percent over OEM designs for custom nozzles. There are no design fees, and the company provides free quotes based on customers’ equipment and the type of LED being placed.
