HOUSTON — Feb. 14, 2013 — BPM Microsystems announces that its model 3800 automated programming system is now available with a side-mount option for the V-TEK TM-50 tape output media. This reconfiguration offers additional flexibility by allowing the machine to utilize options for tape, tray, tube and marking simultaneously.
“There are a number of advantages to the side-mount option that include improved access to the machine’s sites, less changeover time between jobs with the use of multiple input and output media, and reduced operator attendance,” said Colin Harper, director of sales and marketing. “With these advantages, our customers who opt for this configuration will ultimately see an increase in the number of programmed parts, thus reducing the overall cost per device.”
BPM Microsystems introduced the 3800 in 2010 as the fastest universal device programming solution on the market. It combines the company’s 8th Generation universal programming technology with the speed of the Vector Engine Co-Processor®, which is capable of achieving a peak operating rate of 25 Gbits per second.
The 3800 can be configured to accommodate the standard front-mount or new side-mount option for the TM-50 carrier tape packaging solution. The new configuration will be on display in the company’s booth #108 next week at the IPC APEX Expo in San Diego, CA.
