NeoDen YY1 Pick And Place Machine With Under $3K Price for Hobbiest/Low vol Usag

<< < (5/46) > >>

I just received my YY1 today.  I am impressed so far.  From uncrating to first placed parts was less than an hour.  Programming is on the machine so that's a bit of a bummer but no worse than my TVM802B.  It's actually much more intuitive to program and use.

I bought the TVM802B because my essemtec csm7000 (I have two) does not handle 0402 parts well at all.  I needed another small machine and the Neoden appealed to me and the price isn't really any more but the design and quality is much better.

The only downside is that when using tubes that have tall components, the tubes have to be placed flat and therefore won't feed.  However the bulk feeding where you can sprinkle lose capacitors (or resistors if you are ok with mounting some upside-down) in the trays and the fiducial camera locates them for picking works surprisingly well.  The 3d printed parts are of very good quality and seem to have great layer adhesion. 

I'm working on a video review, shooting video, taking pics.  Hope to be able to share the video in the next week.  If anyone has questions or would like to see a pic of anything particular, let me know.

Definitely looking forward to seeing more on this  machine in the absence of detailed info from the manufacturer!

I just ordered the YY1 a few days, so this is encouraging!  I expect mine to arrive early November, and I will report back as I test it. 

For my CHMT36 I wrote a little C# program that takes my KiCad placement files and my component/feeder spreadsheet file, and generates the native CHMT PnP file.  I am looking forward to doing the same for the YY1.

I've had my YY1 for a couple of weeks now, quite like it.

Board setup is quick & easy. Machine is quiet.

Placements are good. I do mostly 0603, 0805, TSSOP, SOIC, TQFP, QFNs. Usually around 300 to 700 placements per board or panel.

That's the .H5 file right? How did you manage that, is their standard open?
