This paper presents the diagnostics of the effects of vibration on the precise placement of electronic components in a surface mount assembly process. Experimental Modal Analysis using present day software/hardware as well as a three dimensional finite element model are performed on the machine structure. Correlation between the experiment and finite element model are also performed and the strength of using the finite element model as a test model for contemplating any design alterations are presented.
