Machine Line Changeover #ManufacturingMonday (video)

It’s Manufacturing Monday at Adafruit!

Behold, an Adafruit machine line changeover. We reconfigure our machine line to manufacture different products up to 10 times a day. These changeovers are like a ballet of human and machine collaboration, performed quickly but with a high degree of precision.

Adafruit’s machine line consists of
1) Board loader
2) Stencil machine
3) PnP SM481
4) PnP SM482
5) Workstation conveyor
6) Reflow oven
7) Indexing conveyor.

Working in concert, these machine are able to output upwards of 5000 individual products a day.
