Open Source Pick And Place Machine

SMD Pick and place head

Tim at Outguessing the machine has started an open source SMD pick and place project.  So far he has a head design, some scripts for EMC2 and some preliminary optical testing done.  He has uploaded the head to Thingiverse.  It features a stepper driven head for aligning the parts and an aquarium vacuum pump for picking up parts.  The head uses a standard Luer-Lock port for interchangeable needles.

It looks like there is a lot of work to go, but it is a good idea and he has a good start.
