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.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. SparkFun pick & place lays down the beats
    ppssst thump pssst thump psssst thump psst thump
    Nice.

  2. Neat machines, I’m sure they help a lot with smt parts!

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

  3. Wow, that thing is awesome!
