Responding to: Bert Van Den Berg's previous message
are approaching volumes where a small pick-and-place machine would probably be justified.
It seems you have "barely a need". Whenever that has been the case for me I have bought used machinery. One of our contract manufacturers (I would go that way instead of buying a machine - that is another story) complained about having to retire "perfectly good machines" because of a significant customer specifying some strange part.


PS we (with a production of ~2000 boards/month) have evaluated that it would cost us more to abandon contract manufactureing and do it ourselves.
