This paper provides the ingredients for an architectural discussion concerning industrial contactiess pick-and-place(P&P) multiple robot design, which incorporates a direct-drive linear permanent magnet motor for the long-stroke movement in a multiple robot component mounter machine. Especially, direct-drive linear permanent magnet motor selection, contactless data and energy transfer and thermodynamics will be discussed, since these necessitate a complete rethink of the individual robot design and part positioning in a multiple moving robot placing multiple components. As such, a completely different individual demonstrator robot will be discussed, i.e. mainly the mechanical and thermal design, which has been built to illustrate the feasibility of a contactless industrial P&P robot.
