A rotary magazine‐based dynamic pick‐and‐place approach for robotic PCB assembly

A rotary magazine‐based dynamic pick‐and‐place approach for robotic PCB assembly Electronics manufacturers use robots extensively in printed circuit board (PCB) assembly to attain high product quality at low production times. In robotic PCB assembly, fixed pick-and-place (FPP) causes unnecessary waste of time. A former paper explored the dynamic pick-and-place (DPP) approach to avoid robot waiting time and thus reduce robotic PCB assembly time. To further decrease robot moving or working space when the DPP approach is applied, this paper presents the rotary magazine-based DPP approach. Experimental results show that the proposed approach not only reduces robot working space, but also reduces assembly time. The more insertions and component types, the more the assembly time is reduced. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Integrated Manufacturing Systems Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Electronics manufacturers use robots extensively in printed circuit board (PCB) assembly to attain high product quality at low production times. In robotic PCB assembly, fixed pick-and-place (FPP) causes unnecessary waste of time. A former paper explored the dynamic pick-and-place (DPP) approach to avoid robot waiting time and thus reduce robotic PCB assembly time. To further decrease robot moving or working space when the DPP approach is applied, this paper presents the rotary magazine-based DPP approach. Experimental results show that the proposed approach not only reduces robot working space, but also reduces assembly time. The more insertions and component types, the more the assembly time is reduced.
