Count On Tools Inc. Will Debut New StripFeeder Lightweight Rails at APEX

New StripFeeder Lightweight Rails.

Count On Tools, Inc. (COT), a leading provider of precision components and SMT spare parts, has released a new accessory – the Lightweight Rails – for its award-winning line of StripFeeder products. The StripFeeder Lightweight Rails enable customers to take full advantage of the StripFeeder platform when operating in OEM tray towers with weight limits on tray capacity. The skeletonized design reduces carrier tray weight by 40-50 percent. StripFeeder Lightweight Rails are available in 0.25" (6mm), 0.50" (12mm), 0.75" (19mm), and 1.125" (28mm) pocket depths.

All StripFeeder .mod and Mini systems feature removable rails that can be mounted to accommodate a wide array of tape sizes in the same feeder. Unlike fixed width tape carrier trays, the StripFeeder can be adjusted by removing the rails and re-positioning them on the base plate at the desired width (4mm pitched pattern). The rails align with precision pin locaters and lock down tightly with magnets to guarantee a stable, repeatable application. All StripFeeder Lightweight Rails also feature a mechanical lock-spring to 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.

This innovative rail design holds the components securely in the machined tracks to prevent parts from being miss-picked, flipped in the pocket or lost. Customers also can remove rails to accommodate larger components up to 120mm tape width. 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 Lightweight Rails will be officially launched during 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.
