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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
