Online and offline SMT component placement systems, also called pick-and-place machines, are robotic machines which are used to place surface-mount devices onto a printed circuit board (PCB).
Key elements critical to all electronic assemblers are:
- The accurate and repeatable placement of components
- Flexibility and speed in placing components on a multitude of differing boards with fast change overs
- Equipment history with minimal ‘down’ times
