Smart Manufacturing is not only for the big ones. In our case we often want to build more then 1 or 2 assembled prototypes of our PCB designs. One or Two is usually fine but still tedious and prone to error. To get our PCB prototypes assembled in significant numbers (up til 50 or 100) as fast and error-free as possible we were looking for a pick&place machine that would fit our budget. So earlier this year we came across a project called Firepick delta. We decided to join in and contribute to this open source project. Right now we have of our first machine (we intend to build 3)  we have the delta arm assembly working.
