More pick and placing (video)


We’re not the only one with a new pick and place machines, check out this shiny beast SparkFun got!

This past week, SparkFun production got a serious upgrade with a new pick and place machine – the Manncorp MC384. It can place up to 4000 parts per hour and has a special vision system that allows for non-contact, on-the-fly alignment of SMD components before placing them onto the PCB. It cost us just a little over $52k, but it’s going to make our production process even smoother.

    Hopefully they can get one in the Sparkfun shipping department. They have never gotten an order right and are horrible about notifications.
