A DIY SMD Pick and Place Tool for Electronics Assembly

This video describes a DIY Vacuum Pick-up tool for picking and placing parts from an SMD component tape. The basic design for this tool involves using a vacuum pump and a solenoid to control the vacuum to a handpiece under control of a foot pedal.

By applying vacuum to the tool, a component can be picked up from an SMD tape and transferred to the PCB being assembled. The schematic, Gerber files and firmware for the PIC18F13K22 microcontroller are attached below.
