OK, so the time has come to clear my garage out and pass on my Quad IVc pick and place machine to a new owner.
I will make this available to anyone who wants it, for free, and include 8x tape feeders, 1x triple nozzle holder, hand held terminal, lots of other bits and pieces, and a ton of reels of components.
The machine worked fine when I last used it about 12 months ago, but it does take some setting up. Remember this machine was manufactured in 1998ish, so is not point and click
I also have a non-functioning machine that can be used for spare parts.
Each machine is about 5’x5’x5’ and weights about 1000lb.
If you want the machines you do not have to use them functionally, I am OK with using both machines for project parts if you want. There are some HUGE capacitors, very high power steppers, massive power supplies, solid work bed, precision lead-screws and a multitude of other machine components that someone can definitely use and/or break up and sell on eBay. I honestly don’t care either way.
Alternatively, one machine is functional and I used it for low volume production a few years ago (this is a full production machine though and can run a lot of boards)
The only thing is that whomever takes this needs to take both machines. I simply need the garage space back, so you will need to arrange pickup. We will need to coordinate this a little since one machine is not on a palette, so we will need to work out how to get it one one
I also have a 4 zone Madell-RF430 re-flow oven for sale at the bargain price of $900. This is much lighter and can easily be lifted/moved by 2 people. It does require 240V though (available at most homes/businesses)
The Quad runs from regular 110V.
Let me know if you or anyone you know is interested in either the Quad or the Madell (personal or business, I don’t care).
