Request a copy of the “Pre-Installation FAQ” document to prepare your facility for the install. It will specify the requirements for Power, Air, and Network.
UNCRATE THE SYSTEM
- Inspect the crates. If any shipping damage is found, get documentation and photographs as evidence, and contact BPM for instruction.
- There will be at least 2, possibly 3 crates. The largest crate is the 39xx Autohandler. The other crate will be the Accessory crate, and a 3rd will contain a TM50 Tape Loader (as applicable)
- Use an electric drill with a Philips bit to open the crates.
For the Autohandler crate, remove the top and all four sides of the crate.
- Remove the plastic shrink wrap.
- Remove the 4 mounting bolts from the underside of the pallet.
- Locate the four machine feet and casters. They will be in a bag in the machine crate.
- Use a forklift to pick the machine off the pallet.
- Install the four feet in the outside holes at each corner. Screw them in about 6mm.
- Bolt on the casters. The bolts may be installed underneath the machine where the casters go.
- Move the pallet and set the machine on the ground.
- Screw in the feet until them machine can roll on the casters, and roll the machine to the desired location.
INSTALL THE SYSTEM
- Screw the feet out until they lift the machine off the casters slightly. Level the machine using the feet and a level.
Remove any protective coating wrap from the plexiglass panels.
- Open the door, and cut all the tie wraps that secure the handler during shipping.
- Remove any blue protective plastic.
Find the machine keys, and put them in the key switch on back of the E-Box.
- Remove the Front panel and inspect the interior of the machine for shipping damage, i.e. dislocated components, disconnected cables, etc. Document as necessary.
- Install the Monitor Arm to the frame.
- Install the Monitor and Keyboard to the arm.
- Make Monitor and Keyboard cable connections.
- Make the system Air connection.
- Make the system Power connection.
- Make the Monitor power connection
- Make the system Network cable connection.
- Install the Light Tower.
- Assemble and install all machine Peripherals. (See Peripheral Installation procedures for TS1500 Tray Stacker, TM50 Tape Loader, X-Stream Feeders, Single Lane Feeders, Laser Marker, etc.)
POWER ON, TEST THE SYSTEM
- Power the machine on, and start BPWin.
Test the Autohandler using all software diagnostic tools. (X&Y
- Encoder Drift Test, Z Axis Encoder Drift Test, W Axis Drift Test)
- Run Programmer Site Diagnostics with Diagnostic card.
- Perform a Cyberoptic camera Y-COR calibration.
- Perform a Camera-to-Nozzle Offset calibration.
- Change the computer date/time as required.
- Check the Laser Nozzle Calibration (if applicable).
- Check full functionality of all options.
- Tie-wrap all cables neatly.
- Clean any trash from installation area.
- Contact your IT specialist about putting the system on your network.
FINALIZE THE INSTALLATION
- Review the contents of the spare parts kit.
- Locate Programmer COC.
- The system should now be ready to setup and teach first job.
- Contact BPM to address any open issues.

How to install and operate the V-Tek TM-50 on a BPM Microsystems Automated Programming System
Charlie Walton goes over the installation, set-up, and the running of the TM-50 MK2 Tape Output Peripheral. Large, small, or difficult to place parts are easy to tape with V-TEK’s TM-50. The microprocessor-controlled sealer and stepper motor drive assure precise handling of all taping parameters. Several advance speeds are selectable to accommodate problem parts and to minimize parts jumping. The innovative setup and change-over design allow any taping operator to change over carrier and cover tapes in minutes. BPM’s TM-50 MK2 has more sensors than other APS suppliers for maximum throughput and minimum errors.
Flexible, easy-to-use, menu-driven software and advanced electronic characteristics make the TM-50 a perfect choice for your taping needs.
Now available with a side-mount option for the V-TEK TM-50 tape output media. This configuration offers additional flexibility by allowing the machine to utilize options for tape, tray, tube and marking simultaneously.
Other advantages to the side-mount option include:
- Improved access to the machine’s programming sites
- Less changeover time between jobs with the use of multiple input and output media
- Reduced operator attendance
- Increase in the number of programmed parts
- The reduced overall cost per device
- Compatible With 3000 and 4000 Series APS
