DIY Pick and Place Machine [Project]
posted November 27 2013 8:24.56 by spic0m

Brian Dorey showcases the first full automatic run of his DIY pick and place machine building a RTC module for a Raspberry Pi. The component selector is controlled via an Arduino Mini and this interfaces to a Smooth Stepper Ethernet board which is controlled via Mach3 on the Windows PC. The custom app his team has written uses a CSV config file of the components to place and this is then converted into the G-Code needed by Mach 3 and also other commands to control the suction relays, LED lighting and camera control and the Arduino powered component selector system.
The component feeders are modified commercial ones as used on the manual placement machine. Team decided to use commercial feeders to both save time and have a reliable and fast way to feed roll supplied components.
