Bot as SMD Soldering Aid

I need a Bot to help me with soldering. Years of looking at Monitors and Double Clicking Mouse, have taken their toll .

Please develop a Camera/Monitor assisted Soldering/Desoldering Workstation. The Miniature Soldering iron manipulated by a Joystick into position and then press the fire button, a tiny blob of solder paste lands on the Junction on Focus. Now press the fire again, a Perfect Shiny Soldered Joint.

2016  РThere is a solution from Martin that is close to what i had in mind.

The Expert 10.6 rework stations facilitates the reliable and precise rework of BGA-, CSP-, and QFN-components, connectors and sockets. Innovative technologies.

The Expert 10.6 rework stations

What we need is a Desktop Aid for SMD prototype fabrication and SMD Card Repairs. Not for manufacturing. To be used by Design Centers and Service Centers.

The card to be populated or repaired can be moved in X-Y-Z axis using  a PC. The Soldering Tool and the adhesive and paste dispensing tool should sync with the PCB Position. Then Soldering and Desoldering should be automated by the machine with camera, after Package type is keyed in. It is a Hands Free Soldering machine with the PC Monitor and HD Camera helping the visualization of the Job

Glew Engineering – Technology Expertise

Experts in Electrical, Materials and Mechanical Engineering Consulting. Consulting and Support areas include Business Development, Solar & Flat Panel Technologies, Materials Science among many others.

FEA Applied to Semiconductor Equipment

CAD and finite element analysis (FEA)

FEA allows for comprehensive modeling of the chamber’s integrity during testing conditions. The FEA model serves as a virtual experiment that allows reduction in prototype cost and testing. An accurate model can reduce the costly repercussions of an incorrectly designed system.

(They may cover Mems and Mechatronics too. – delabs)
