Bot as SMD Soldering Aid

I need a Bot to help me with soldering. Years of looking at Monitors and Double Clicking Mouse, have taken their toll .

Please develop a Camera/Monitor assisted Soldering/Desoldering Workstation. The Miniature Soldering iron manipulated by a Joystick into position and then press the fire button, a tiny blob of solder paste lands on the Junction on Focus. Now press the fire again, a Perfect Shiny Soldered Joint.

2016  - There is a solution from Martin that is close to what i had in mind.

The Expert 10.6 rework stations facilitates the reliable and precise rework of BGA-, CSP-, and QFN-components, connectors and sockets. Innovative technologies

Rework Station EXPERT 10.6

What we need is a Desktop Aid for SMD prototype fabrication and SMD Card Repairs. Not for manufacturing. To be used by Design Centers and Service Centers.

The card to be populated or repaired can be moved in X-Y-Z axis using  a PC. The Soldering Tool and the adhesive and paste dispensing tool should sync with the PCB Position. Then Soldering and Desoldering should be automated by the machine with camera, after Package type is keyed in. It is a Hands Free Soldering machine with the PC Monitor and HD Camera helping the visualization of the Job

Surgical Tools useful for Manufacturing

Small Boards, SMT circuits and hybrid electronics need special tools. The soldering and handling require some tools and custom jigs which can be custom designed. 

Some product are mass produced, some tools for managing and working on Tiny PCB's and parts may not be available in the market at an affordable price.

Electronic Product Production Manufacturing

So affordable solution can be created, the jigs are supplemented by surgical tools. These are the Clips and Tweezers that a doctor uses when he conducts an operation.

Surgical Tools useful for Manufacturing

Let use see one here an Hemostat Clamp and other tools at P J Tool and Supply

Call it Forceps, Tweezers or Pliers. These tools, both the bent/arched/curved one and straight are useful.

When you go to a Surgical Supplies Store, Buy some Filter Paper, capillary tubes and a spirit lamp as well. These can find a lot of good use in the ultimate quest for the God Particle. Beat the Swiss to it.

The Gadget Jot-a-Note which was on Google Gears has been modified for Cookies Data Storage. Now it has Sticky Notes, Clock and Calculator. Online Desktop. Just break Frames and do a Full Screen on chrome.

Jot-a-Note for your iGoogle or Blog

Jot-A-Note also supports HTML inside notes. That means you can have Simple HTML and CSS formatting. Images and iframe-gadgets. Jot a Note is now Jot Desktop .

Jot-a-Note changed added Widgets

There is a Golden SteamPunk Clock too built in. If you want it separately in your iGoogle..

Ostermiller Basic and Scientific Calculator

Scientific Expression or Formula Calculations. Twenty Transaction Memory and Tape, Different bases like Decimal and Octal, Logic Math, Functions, Constants.

Ostermiller Basic and Scientific Calculator

ScreenShot of Gadget

Ostermiller Basic and Scientific Calculator

Deriving knowledge and inspiration from ostermiller.org. The GUI and Skin Modifications were done by me.

The Code is here digital-calculator - Then i just Skinned it, added a GUI, A Scientific Mode or Turbo Switch. A Tape for History.

It has Brackets to build your own math equation. Scientific Functions like Trigonometric, Hyperbolic, Logarithmic.Memory (cookies), A Paper Trail or Tape for Equation and Result History.

I have also made a SteamPunk Clock which is integrated into Jot a Note Gadget. This calculator also will soon be a app in the Jot Notes. Jot Desktop in the clouds, not yet, but dreaming with gadgets.

Google Gears is mutated to HTML5, the Jot a Note i made was on Gears and SQL, Now i have to learn HTML5 apps, also all browsers should start supporting the database part of HTML5. So i converted the Jot a Note Gadget to plain JS and Cookies.

Pin Note Web Gadget

This is a Tiny memo Pad that will have Sticky Notes on Webpage, saves in cookies. This Web Gadget was for the Google Homepage, Web-page or blog. The project page and the source is at pin-notes.

The inspiration for this has been Stickies. Which i have been using for some time.Add to your Page or Blog - Pin Notes xml code - you need to use only the iframe part.

Pin Note Web Gadget

Note - This is toy or fun gadget not for serious note taking, it is more an example of css-dhtml-js for study or learning.

24 March 2010 - Data Freedom in PSV, Pipe Separated like | and ||. Now you can move to a competing Notes Service Provider if you feel our interface or features are not just right. 

Development

This was later enhanced to the Jot a Note gadget. Jot a Note then became Jot Desktop. Now i have made a app site called iDesk a Online Desktop .
