PCB Construction: Automatic Component Placement / "Pick-n-Place"

SMT (surface mount technology) component placement systems, commonly called pick-and-place machines or P&Ps, are robotic machines which are used to place surface-mount devices (SMDs) onto a printed circuit board (PCB). They are used for high speed, high precision placing of broad range of electronic components

Little NEMA 8 stepper motors with a Hollow shaft exist and are perfect for Pick-n-Place heads because it allows the vacuum to be directed through the motor, avoiding the need for gearing or an offset tube. E.g.:
