Pick and Place – Z-Axis and Nozzle Test

By: Tiler Jones (Manufacturing) and Chastin Realubit (MST)

Z-Axis Motor: We did an experiment to see the load that the Z-Axis can handle and we found that it will still carry up to 2000 g. This experiment was done so that we can see if the motor can still move up and down even with more load. This was needed because we are adding a camera on the Z-Axis and we needed the system to still function with extra weight.

As seen on the pictures below, the Nozzle was completely removed due to its instability, the rods were replaced, and wires routed differently to reconnect and replace the nozzle to be stable so it does not move while the Pick and Place is running.
