Count On Tools Inc., a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, now manufactures RPS Automation Selective Solder Risers for the Opus range of selective soldering machines.

As selective soldering becomes more popular in the electronics manufacturing industry, Count On Tools has realized the need for higher quality selective solder nozzles that can consistently apply flux and solder to component leads without disturbing nearby SMT components. Count On Tools custom selective solder nozzles assist to replace labor-intensive hand soldering while eliminating defects caused by wave soldering machines in the market’s most popular selective soldering equipment.

In addition to providing replacement risers for Opus RPS Selective Soldering equipment, Count On Tools specializes in custom selective solder nozzles based on specific application requirements. This includes special wave form sizes and extended or shortened lengths. Generally, these nozzles can be completed in three to five days with savings up to 50 percent less than OEM nozzles. Count On Tools also provides identification marks that enable customers to easily identify leaded nozzles from lead-free versions.

By using superior steel alloys made in the USA, along with the latest precision machining technologies, Count On Tools is able to produce selective soldering nozzles and risers that are more durable and last longer than those from the OEM while still maintaining all of the original Gaussian design properties. The unique nozzle design increases solder wave height and precision, improving the ability to solder in tight spaces and around nearby components.

"During the development of our selective soldering product line, we strived to design a nozzle that would outperform OEM designs by lasting longer without wearing, being both more accurate and working more consistently over time in the selective soldering process. These three processes are critical in the function of this equipment. We were able to not only meet this goal, but also to lower the cost of the product," said Zachery Shook, Marketing Director of Count On Tools, Inc.

All nozzles and risers are guaranteed to function properly with the original equipment. Every selective solder product 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.
