Modular StripFeeder System from Count On Tools
Modular StripFeeder system.
Gainesville, GA — Count On Tools Inc. has introduced the latest version of its StripFeeder System for loading tape-and-reel components onto compact modules for prototyping and high-mix/low-volume applications.

The new modular StripFeeder now has adjustable rails to accommodate a wide array of components in the same feeder. Unlike the fixed width version, the modular StripFeeder can be adjusted by unlocking the rails and sliding them to the desired width. The innovative design holds the components securely in the 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, and larger in some cases.

The new StripFeeder systems provide a cost-effective way to load many components into the machine without having to purchase expensive feeders. The quick-to-assemble, easy-to-install modules are designed for quick loading of tape-and-reel components on existing SMT pick-and-place equipment. In addition, the trays enable fast changeover between product runs without unloading from the machine.

The StripFeeder trays are compatible with both paper and embossed tape simultaneously, and are suitable for low-volume/high-mix applications and prototyping. In addition, the trays are compatible with any style SMT pick-and-place equipment or JEDEC-style tray feeders.
