I have worked with Count On Tools for many years and I have come to rely on their professional opinion and expertise on making nozzles for our more complex parts. Even with the new platform from Assembléon, Count On Tools was able to manufacture the special nozzles I needed and have them delivered to me in time for installation and production start up of the new MC24X. Their 'can do' approach to any situation, backed by their attention to detail and high-quality manufacturing, has made Count On Tools my only choice for all of my special nozzle needs."
