Obsolescence of CyberOptics Alignment Sensor used on legacy BPM Automated Programming Systems

CyberOptics ceased manufacturing the alignment sensor used on the BPM Microsystems’ 6th through 8th Generation automated programming systems in 2014. Prior to that date, BPM Microsystems invested significantly in a “last time buy” opportunity. During the almost 8 years since the last purchase, most of BPM’s inventory is now depleted.

BPM understands the critical nature of this alignment sensor. Today, BPM provides opportunities for the purchase of refurbished replacement sensors through a non-warranty core exchange process. This process requires that “broken” sensors (the core) be sent to BPM for repair. However, not all sensors can be repaired. Therefore even this inventory is almost exhausted.

We highly recommend that all 8th Gen Automated Programmer users consider a strategy to systematically trade-in these legacy systems for modern, more productive BPM APS models. As a start BPM will provide a proposal for the trade-in of your legacy BPM APS and will be providing further recommendations for your other machines.
