Sick of Soldering Header Pins? Let This Robot Do the Work. #robots

AB Electronics designed and built this soldering robot – along with this pick-and-place machine – to automate their Raspberry Pi expansion board assembly. Amazing!

The speeds are set low at the moment on the stepper motors so we can make any position adjustments needed and once we are happy with the soldering placement we will work on making the machine faster by increasing the element temperature and the solder feed rates.
