The Virgo 2000 pick and place machine offers 12 independent placement heads mounted on dual overhead gantry beams, allowing the simultaneous pick up and placement of all types of SMDs. It takes up 4 sq meters and features six quick change feeder carts and on-beam high-resolution cameras. Each camera, with 5-micron measurement resolution, is mounted on its own linear axis allowing in-flight imaging of all components along the length of the beam. The image taken provides the correction orientation and all six components are inspected in transit to the PCB.
