Count On Tools Inc. introduces the new ezLOAD XL PCB Support System. With the recent increase in densely populated double-sided circuit boards, COT recognized the need for more affordable board support options in the electronics manufacturing industry.
The end result is an innovative design that is not only easy to setup and install, but also offers industry-leading benefits to EMS companies and contract manufacturers worldwide.
The ezLOAD XL PCB Support System offers customers building larger boards the option of a custom built ezLOAD board support for their specific application. The design can be customized for any length and width combination. In most cases, it also is adjustable for multiple applications. The horizontal posts can be unlocked and replaced with longer or shorter ones to accommodate other board sizes. The design features an extruded aluminum base and soft, ESD-safe foam fingers. The ezLOAD system not only reduces changeover times, but also improves product build quality, increases revenues by providing significant cost savings and eliminates component damage during the assembly process.
COT’s ezLOAD PAD features active grip technology to securely hold boards during the assembly process. It protects components while allowing the boards to move freely through the assembly line and also is ESD-safe. With the basic universal design, there are no mechanical functions to fail. The system requires no air, electronics or communication from the user. The magnetic locking base enables a quick, easy installation. Other base designs are available for non-magnetic tables. Most importantly, the ezLOAD PCB Support System is affordable compared to competitive products on the market.
The ezLOAD PCB Support System is compatible with any SMT equipment, from pick-and-place to chip shooters, screen printers, dispensers, AOI and more. The soft, flexible design makes it extremely durable and is proven to be reliable after testing in the most hazardous conditions. The ezLOAD PCB Support System is customizable depending on machine requirements, specialized components or specific design application requirements.
