This project is based on pick-and-place machines for placing surface mount devices onto the printed
circuit board. In general, the SMT pick and place robot using an end effectors to pick and place the
component on the PCB and a controller is used to control the movement of the stepper motor. Our SMT
pick and place machine is designed with a Cartesian configuration, and the Arduino UNO controller
with the CNC shield controls the stepper motors. The end effectors use a vacuum suction pen to pick and
place the components and a belt mechanism is used in the z-axis for up-down motion. Our machine is
portable and well suited for small scale industries. Our project satisfies one important sustainable
development goal - industry, innovation, and infrastructure.
