It’s Manufacturing Monday at Adafruit!
The stencil machine has an essential role in our cadre of robotic helpers – it’s the first step in a PCB’s journey towards becoming a finished product and allows us to apply solder paste to bare PCBs with 0.01mm accuracy! A stencil is used to precisely apply solder paste to boards as they pass through, moving on to the pick-n-place where they will be populated with components.
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.
