This paper studies the operation of a surface mount technology (SMT) machine which basically consists of three main movable parts: an X–Y table containing a printed circuit board (PCB), ten rotating ‘pick-and-place’ heads and a carriage feeder of reels. The machine inserts electronic components into defined positions on a PCB and the components are supplied from a set of reels each containing a tape of identical components. In the current production setup, the assembly plan comprising both the… Expand
