Video: CNC Router as Pick and Place Machine

Jun 10, 2013   //   by Bob Warfield   //   Blog, CNC Router, DIY CNC, Techniques  //  3 Comments

I wanted to call out Lindsay Wilson’s neat video of his CNC Router acting as a pick and place machine in its own post:

He mentioned it in a comment on our 2nd article on using CNC Machines as general purpose motion platforms.  Pick and place is commonly used to position components on circuit boards such as Lindsay’s video shows, but there’s no reason it couldn’t be used to position almost anything with the proper manipulator.  He’s showing a vacuum style part grabber, which is common for small PC board components.

Getting more value out of your CNC machine is largely a matter of using your imagination.

  • Here is a solder paste dispensing mashine for prototyping: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSZbkR9vNzI

    Though this one is a dedicated commercial machine you can probably modify a machine by yourself. The normal process would be buying a laser cut stencil to apply solder paste and then send it to a pick and place mashine.

    • Thanks, Tillmann. There are a lot of neat ideas in that video.

      Best,
