About April’s Factory 5 Presentation – Chipsetter

Chipsetter Inc. is developing a low-cost pick-and-place machine for the printed circuit board (PCB) assembly process. The machine performs the task of picking up very small electronics components and placing them on the PCB. Their design has resulted in a product that is able to retail for approximately 10 times less than existing $30,000 entry-level machines, while being easier to use and quicker to setup thanks to our low-cost feeder design. Their goal is to democratize access to advanced electronics manufacturing, and put a factory in every workshop!
