Exatron 8000 Series Pick & Place Handlers

The 8000-3/V Handler has been designed as the ultimate machine for IC handling needs. The 8000-3/V is capable of handling components stored in multiple medias to and from programming/test sites. Media options for input and output include standard and non-standard JEDEC trays, taped devices, bowl feed/bucket and plastic/metal tubes. The 8000-3/V system can be configured with multiple programming/test sites, laser mark capabilities, differential temperature testing, and 3D vision inspection. The 8000-3/V is a versatile handler, capable of producing "finished" components.


The 8000-3/V is designed with three to five JEDEC tray stackers (up to 20 trays). The machine has up to eight Pick-&-Place heads to allow for quick and precise component handling. The handler is designed to directly dock to the test heads for easy removal of the DUT board with no need to reposition the system. The 8000-3/V has an easy-to-use Windows based control software. An operator can be trained to use the machine in less than four hours. The 8000-3/V system is capable of handling up to 5000 units per hour, depending on the number of options.

The 8000-3/V comes standard with:

  • Dual pickup heads with 90° rotation
  • Up to five JEDEC tray stackers (more available upon request)
  • Servo motors for all axes
  • ESD safe
  • CE mark
  • Windows operating system
  • Single keyboard/mouse with built-in KVM switch to control any additional computers
  • Dual LCD flat panel monitors (with scanner option)
  • Modem with PC Anywhere for remote service and software updates
  • Tri-color operation light pole with Audio Alert
  • Safety covers and interlocks
  • Welded steel frame, casters and leveling feet
  • Multiple emergency-stop buttons


Tbigfasttrackhotcold.jpghe 8000-3/V can be configured as a hot/cold
temperature tester. Using liquid heating and cooling systems from Julabo and a movable hot and cold test head carriage, the system can test both hot and cold with a single placement of the component. By placing the device in the test socket only, the potential of damaging the leads is prevented as a result of unnecessary handling. The 8000-3/V differential temperature system can range from -55°C to +155°C with an accuracy of +/- 1°C. Embedded thermocouples within the test heads measure the component temperature and perform testing when the specified temperature has been reached. Typical soak times are under four seconds.



Inspection can be integrated using many brands of vision systems.

True 3D Coplanarity Inspection is available for:

  • BGA/uBGA
  • CSP
  • Custom devices



The system can be configured with a Laser Marker.  The marking can be completed in tray and no tooling is required.

Laser Specifications:

  • "Red" Wavelength 1064 nm or "Green" Wavelength 532 nm
  • Power 0 to 1.5 Watts
  • Pulse Repetition 2 - 20 KHz

The 8000-3/V can be equipped with an X-Y-Theta Precisor Station. Working in conjunction with an inspection module, the Precisor Station guarantees accurate component handling.

Output is to either a JEDEC Tray Stacker or a Model 1080 Automatic Taper for 8 to 72 mm tapes, PSA or Thermal Seal. De-taping input can also be added upon request. .

The system can also be configured with Input and Output Tube Feeders.


Facilities Requirements

  • 110 to 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 5 Amps Power
    May require 220 VAC, 60 Hz, 10 amps power for some hot/cold temperature systems
  • 80 PSI Minimum clean dry air
