Hi Matt,
Yes, we have a pick'n place machine, and the specs claim that it can
reliably place 0402s.

We have it very new and It is not properly set up yet: we have not actually
placed components yet. Right now, we are in the process of getting it
calibrated (it has some software with, let's say, challenging UI). There is
of course rpt2pnp but for that we also need to get the reference points
into the system.
If you are interested, join us this evening (Miloh, Rolf and I will be
there) to work towards getting the machine up and running and getting a
feel for it. If you have a test-board, the better, but don't expect things
to be fully working tonight. But you could be one of the first users. And
it would be good to get knowledgeable people such as you introduced to the
machine to spread the operating knowledge for this machine.
