Abstract

Despite continuous efforts in improving process reliability inprintedcircuit board assembly PCBA, a zerodefect situation isdifficult to achieve because of the complexity of the process and themultitude of components involved. PCBA rework is necessary in manycompanies due to economic as well as commercial reasons. Presents theintermediate results of a research programme aimed to investigate thetechnical and economic feasibility of extending the use of a roboticassembly cell to perform singleboard rework. Outlines various manualrework practices and the equipment available. Examines the role ofindustrial robots and machine vision in PCBA and defines the objectivesand overall boundary of the research programme in automatic rework.Describes individual equipment selected to assist the robot, the layoutand the manner in which it is used in the cell. Concludes with thedevelopment of the cell controller and the methods of equipmentintegration.
