I am trying to estimate the capital costs for fabricating an in house pick and place unit for a production line.
The major cost considerations I can identify are..
- servos (1 per axis?)
- vacuum pump (what kind of power requirements?)
- foundation fixture (a track for the pick and place unit to move the parts)
- other fixtures (vacuum cups, adjustable fingers, etc.)
- PLC/HMI considerations (hopefully some open source software?)
What other costs can I expect for this kind of project?
Thank you in advance!
