Abstract

The problem with a pickup and insertion vacuum head is that the modules are of different sizes and must fit into a brickwall situation of components on a printed circuit board. Brickwalling refers to a situation where the components, such as modules, are packed tightly edge to edge on the printed circuit board. The placing of the modules into the openings on the printed circuit board must be done without damaging the modules and still maintain a fast cycle time.
