Siemens F5HM, latest software | 29 July, 2016

Hello,

Could you please tell me what the latest Siemens F5HM software version is? Installed version we have is 407.03.

It seems this software version does not support placement force adjustment for pick&place head that might be a critical point for QFN/BTC placement. Sounds weird and I wonder if this statement is true.

Does F5 support placement force adjustment at hardware level? Is it software limitation only?

Any input is much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Regards, Pavel

I have 408.01 and I believe that might be the latest version supported. What makes you think that the setting doesn't work? You can measure it with a scale, if you want to check it for real.

Could you please tell me more about measurements? Which scales to use and what is the principal behind that?

Regards

Just get a regular scale(small thin one - like a scale for kitchen). Mount it over a PCB and simulate placement with certain force. Hold the nozzle down for long time in order to register accurate reading from the scale. Then, just change parameters and repeat. 1kg = 9.8N
