I found a Pick and Place machine on eBay for what I considered a bargain price.



I am hoping to get it working under LinuxCNC, probably under the overall control of OpenPnP. Mainly as a project in its own right.

I have no experience of PnP at all, so would appreciate pointers.

who was the manufacturer ? I know the Manncorp EMC93 was originally a servo driven model. At least on the X and Y axis anyway.
I will have to ask my boss about the feeders because there were some that were double width for bigger parts.
does yours have a multi position rack like in this video?

Mine was made by Mamiya. It has 5-phase stepper motors.
Unlike the one in the video it has one cylinder for each feeder, for a total of 20 cylinders.

Yours will be able to cycle faster because it won't have to wait for a rack to get into position. Does it have a down looking camera
for faducial alignment?

Yes, there is a down-looking camera. I intend to swap it for a USB one to tidy up the wiring, and to add an up-looking one, probably. Though I need to check focal lengths and such for that.
