  • Custom Nozzles: COT has the experience and manufacturing flexibility to develop custom engineered solutions to satisfy your individual process requirements. With more than 25 years of experience on multiple machine platforms, COT’s team has the professional expertise to solve your pick-and-place issues! This would include special nozzles for LEDs (Cree, Lumileds, Luxeon, Osram, Nichia, Seoul, etc.), micro components (0201/01005/03015), connectors, switches, push buttons, pins, clips, heavy, over-sized, and more. There is no limit to COT’s capabilities when it comes to automating your custom component processes.
  • Component Handling Products: COT offers several styles of component handling trays based on industry proven specifications and the unique requirements of each product. These include the Stripfeeder Platform and the QWIKTRAY systems. Application requirements such as temperature and chemical exposure, manufacturing processes, mechanical and electrical constraints are factors that are combined with operation considerations including production volumes, build costs, total estimated usage and process control. From off the shelf kits to custom built tray products, rest assured that COT has the right fit for your next job.
  • Automation Tooling Products: As a design and manufacturing company, COT specializes in developing solutions. The focus of the company’s development projects has been on improving the methods of assembly of printed circuit boards. Every aspect of this process can benefit from automation tooling. Customers come to COT with problems that they experience, such as having to hand place odd-form components, repairing worn/damaged feeders, or developing universal board supports, like the ezLOAD series. COT’s team sees every opportunity as a challenge to prove that they are capable of producing solutions at every level of the SMT assembly process, especially nozzles and tooling. The technology that COT has developed over the years has allowed the company to design and manufacture custom engineered tooling for any process in the SMT industry.

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
