CMS-84V Software questions | 14 September, 2000

I just purchased a used Philips CMS-84V pick and place machine and am curious if their software (CSM toolbox and/or CSM digitizer) is needed. I use the Protel for Windows PCB layout software.

Any input would be helpful.

I've been using the Philips CSM84V for more than 7 years now and would be glad to help you any way I can. Do you have a Mark III or is you machine a Mark II or earlier? Some important differences in the way things are done between the two.

CSM Toolbox is communications software which will allow you to download/upload files from/to a PC to/from CSM84.

If you want to discuss other details, e-mail me at

CSM toolbox & CSM digitizer are two hold software for programming the machine offline. If you want something thery new you have to ask via PHILIPS EMT ( at your PHILIPS EMT region ) the CAD2CAD software. This software is for free for PHILIPS customer, you have only to register when you install. To have some news about it see hte web site:

If you need more details & help about CSM / GEM machine please let me know.
