A survey of surface mount device placement machine optimisation: Machine classification

  title={A survey of surface mount device placement machine optimisation: Machine classification},
  author={Masri Ayob and Graham Kendall},
  journal={European Journal of Operational Research},
The optimisation of a printed circuit board assembly line is mainly influenced by the constraints of the surface mount device placement (SMD) machine and the characteristics of the production environment. Hence, this paper surveys the various machine technologies and characteristics and proposes five categories of machines based on their specifications and operational methods. These are dual-delivery, multi-station, turret-type, multi-head and sequential pick-and-place SMD placement machines… CONTINUE READING
