Tips on speeding up SMD part placement

in how-to, tools by DP | 5 comments

Mike made a video on how to speedup SMD assembly. He uses air/vacuum powered tools to for pickup, and placement, as well as for solder paste dispensing. Don’t be put of by thinking of expensive air compressors and vacuum pumps, as he gives some great advice on using inexpensive parts to build your own.

      ^^whoa that is one crazy teardown. Very nice. He’s just as good as Dave/EEVBlog (sorry, I don’t even know if that’s a fair comparison!)

        This video appeared 1 year ago on Dave/EEVBlog’s forum!

        If you read the following comment from Dave, they are not really competitors: mikeselectricstuff is a regular poster on EEVBlog.

      • Rohit de Sa says:

        Oh no, I didn’t mean competitors. I’ve just never seen his videos before, so I’m really pleased :-) I now have something else equally good to watch in between Dave’s two videos per week :-)
