    pick and place controller design

    Any ideas on what is the easiest way for a diyer to control a pick and place arm custom built for one job only? 2 axis of motion, y travel 45 inches, z travel 3 inches. Any ideas for a standalone system/controller solution?? Could one of the pic boards be adapted to hold a simple motion program on board??

    If this is just a simple dedicated system, You pick up one of the stand-alone motion controllers like this one, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW programmable in simple two letter commands. program with any PC through the serial port, PC not required to run it.

    Can a DIY use a flash memory of some sort to do this with a hobby cnc controller?
