Thanks for the comment.  I am sure that there are things that can be leveraged off of these efforts, but there are some fundamental aspects that we are seeking to improve upon.

 

One of these areas is to completely eliminate the style of feeders that are used.  There are two reasons for this.  First the cost.  Feeders drive significant cost into the designin a few ways. Their mechancial nature makesthem expensive to produce, and because you need to have a lot of them for building any sort of board, this further increases cost.  The other issue with this style of feeder is that they significantly increase the footprint of the device.  I think that we as a group can do better while only suffering some minor tradeoffs

 

This is not to discourage posting other references.  We are always open to reference material.

Hi,

Well, here are my 2¢ worth.

For feeding, instead of having the huge things - aka feeders for large runs, why not implement an 'old style' dot matrix printer feeder, but with adjustable width spokes.

Then on the side, depending on the maximum pcb workable area, have an attachment, that will be a small oven, with side walls that can open and close, as to save space and energy.

I can input more, but... some others have referred to other projects.

The way my brain works: when I saw "desktop pick and place machine" I immediately thought of a robot that you put on your desk which cleans up your desktop. The question is, after it has finished placing everything, will I be able to find anything?

Good day,

There are already some low cost PnP projects started and so perhaps it would be best to work with these groups, as opposed to starting another one.  Here are some that I have found:

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
