Piece of BGA

Looks like a part of a BGA machine, does surface mount installing chips on printed circuit boards. Check some of the part numbers of the equipment against BGA search.

Yeah, where the heck did you get that thing man? I know exactly what it is. It's a robotic arm for a storage silo. It grabs magnetic tapes to mount and unmount them in the silo. Mostly used by big businesses and government I think. I work on a government facility and we have about 10 of these huge silos, and I believe they use those arms. I'm really curious where you got it. I'm not sure you're gonna find someone to buy it, but you might as well throw it up on eBay and see what happens. I think the camera and lights are for the tape operators when they are manually loading a tape, so they can position the arm right in front of the tape they want.
