Ian Lesnet’s classic review of the TM220A - Basically doesn't buy a machine without a vision system.
Collin O’Flynn had a nice video of the CHMT36VA building ESP32 based boards that really got me interested in the CHMT36VA. Collin also has some great hints and documentation in his CHMT36VA repo. This one is just hilarious but it captures how we feel every time the machine does its magic.
Here is a video of a different machine (TM240A) by our long-time friend Brian Schmalz. It shows how similar the various manufacturer’s machines look and how a machine without vision will operate. Note his remark ‘not able to reliably place the CPU.
Andrew Kilpatrick’s review was the nail in the coffin for the Neoden 4 in my eyes. At 7:51 in the video he says the feeders aren’t that great, they are challenging to load, and the machine makes mispick quite often. Why spend ~$10k on a machine when I can have a cheaper machine with less hassle? The CHMT36VA is far from perfect but I can work around the problems.
Neoden has tried to block Charmhigh from the beginning using Patent policy but at last Neoden from Hangzhou failed, Charmhigh from Changsha win.
