There is a new toy I received today: a NeoDen TM-240A automatic desktop pick and place machine! I’ve kept my eyes on this baby for a quite a while, and finally decided to make a purchase last week. The shipping was very fast: DHL from China, a total

If you study how the process is done now, it isn't that different from what you describe. Instead of glue, we use solder paste, and instead of spraying it we screen print it. But not that different. For feeding boards we use conveyors instead of rubb

Andres, I think if you were to understand the process a little better you would realise the many many problems you would encounter building even very simple things using your method. Even 30 minutes watching Youtube videos of current machines might h

Smaller companies many want to rent a machine, but may not necessarily use it 24/7, and a smaller machine may require less expertise to use. If many small machine can work fast enough, it can operate for less time and reduce operating costs. (I'm mo
