Seeed’s Pick and Place machine

Posted on Friday, January 7th, 2011 in kit biz, manufacturing by Ian

More about Seeed Studio’s new Pick and Place machine:

We don’t want to keep pushing our PCBA factory any more. All factories in Shenzhen prefers quantity to keep their machine running, so small orders will take high setup fee and unnecessary lead time. It might take only half day to assemble 100 pcs Bus Pirate but has to wait for 3-5 days for the bigger batch ends.

It’s an Autotronik BS384 instead of the Mancorp machines used by Adafruit, Microbuilder.edu, and others.
