Homebrew CNC surface mount PickNPlace machine


Steve writes –

…[Here’s a] video clip of my CNC Taig mill setup as a surface mount Pick and Place machine. It’s slow, but it’s more fun watching it do the work then it is to do it by hand! Notice how it picks up the parts in one orientation, and then rotates them to the correct destination orientation. It then “centers” the part in the “centering pit”. Also notice the way-cool http://www.HighTechSystemsLLC.com Modular Work Holding System that holds the PCB down on the HighTechSystemsLLC.com tooling plate. It makes clamping the PCBs down a snap!

    Wow! Does it do all that with coordinates or does it have some sort of photo recognition?
