I would like to understand what different options people are using to place low volume / odd form parts. I am very familiar with the tweezers / vacuum pen method however this can be less than desirable. I am looking into a manual pick and place to

Ken, Thanks for the info but I do not see where this addresses my main concern of placement using an alternative to the tweezers and keeping the board on the conveyer. Please let me know if I am missing something. Thanks, Kevin

Our manual and semiautomatic pick an place machines are suitable for all low volume tasks, fine pitch included, thanks to a special break system, guiding the manual mooving of the nozzle. Have a look at http://www.harotec.ch Hermann

We use a manual "pick and place" unit similar to the OK product, and it work great. The parts are in a tray and the operator moves the pick up head over the part and press down which turns on the vacuum, the vacuum is turned off when the part is pla
