An apparatus for individually selecting a number of single in-line package (SIP) components and sequentially inserting them into a printed circuit board. The apparatus has a basic mode of operation, under a program control, comprising a shuttle assembly and a component pickup and insertion assembly, the shuttle assembly transferring a component from a selected one of a plurality of magazines and transferring the component to an unload station. At the unload station, the pickup and insertion assembly picks up the component from the shuttle assembly and rotates to a vertical position for insertion of the component in a printed circuit board. The printed circuit board is mounted on a pantograph mechanism whose position is controlled by a tape reader or a computer which also determines the automatic sequencing of the shuttle block.
