New computer software available for the place_it. Click here to read about it. Free demonstration version is available for download.

The SMD pick-and-place machine works after the pick-and-place principle. place_it removes the components from the feeder and precisely sets them onto the programmed positions. place_it is able to work up a large spectrum of components. place_it is deliverable with dispenser for glue and solder paste and a wafer tray (tableau) for try packed components. You can buy place_it for favourable prices in sets.


  • Ready to be plugged in
  • Compact construction
  • Simple handling and programming
  • Quick product exchange
  • Internal, buffered data memory (RAM) for up to 64 various in-line assembly programs
  • Control of the presence of the components by vacuum sensor
  • 4 pliers centering system on the mounting head
  • automatic exchange of the nozzles
  • programmable compression for set-up
  • positioning of components in all angular positions
  • integrated vacuum pump
  • glas ruler controlled positioning into X, Y and Z direction
  • integrated error diagnostic system
  • 16 possibilities to center components
  • programmable depression threshold
