Troubleshooting Automated SuperBOT Programmers


General faults of the automated programming machine include abnormal mechanical movement, IC placement and pickup, IC programming, IC printing and IC feeding/outlet, as described below:


Abnormal Mechanical Movement

Description Possible Cause Troubleshooting Measure
Inaccurate X, Y or Z axis Loose spare parts or component Check and fasten the spare parts or components
Interference to movement Check and eliminate interference
Abnormal transmission or loose belt Adjustment or replacement
Abnormal mechanical noise Deformed guide rail or excessive parallel deviation Re-calibration of replacement
Worn steel ball inside sliding block Replacement of sliding block
Insufficient lubricant Addition of lubricant


Abnormal IC Placement and Pickup

Description Possible Cause Troubleshooting Measure
Abnormal nozzle movement Improper setting of vacuum meter Re-setting
Deformed nozzle or interference Check/replace nozzle or eliminate interference
Failure of IC pickup Signal output setting of vacuum meter too high Re-setting
Insufficient press depth of nozzle Re-measurement of the depth according to standard procedure
Insufficient air source pressure or air leakage Check/adjustment of air pressure, check for air leakage in the air pressure loop
Damaged or deformed nozzle Check/replacement of nozzle
Unsuitable nozzle specification Replacement of nozzle
Dropped IC after pickup Air cylinder lifts or lowers too fast Adjustment of cylinder valve
Insufficient air pressure or air leakage Check/adjustment of air pressure, check air pressure loop and eliminate air leakage
Dirty nozzle Cleaning or replacement of nozzle
Damaged or deformed nozzle Check/replacement of nozzle
Unsuitable nozzle specification Replacement of nozzle
Resistance at chip pickup position Check and eliminate foreign matters
Improper IC placement Sticky surface of nozzle or IC Clean surface of nozzle or IC
Insufficient air blow (vacuum damage) Proper increase of air blow


Abnormal IC Programming

Description Possible Cause Troubleshooting Measure
Yield of programming too low Inaccurate mechanical positioning Re-positioning according to standard procedure, including height measurement
Poor contact of IC pin Check IC pin or cleaning /replacement of adapter seat
Abnormal programmer Replacement of programmer or contact with Xeltek personnel
Improper programming setting Re-setting of programming parameters according to standard procedure
IC quality problem Notify IC supplier to confirm IC quality
Abnormal connection of programmer Abnormal or unstable programmer Replacement of programmer or contact with Xeltek personnel
Disconnected USB cable Connect USB cable
Empty programming Wrong human interference during programming Strict implementation of standard operating procedure, prohibition of manual placement of ICs
Improper vacuum setting Check vacuum setting and re-set it
Inconsistency of number of programmed IC Failure to clear counter to zero before programming Operate according to standard procedure
Incomplete disposal of alarm message Continue operation after full disposal of alarm message
IC dropped into machine or adjacent area Check for IC dropped into machine or adjacent area


Abnormal IC Printing

Description Possible Cause Troubleshooting Measure
Failure to print on IC Dry ink Replacement of ink box
Printer head too low Adjustment of height of printer head
Ink on IC too thick/light Improper setting of printer head Adjustment of height of printer head
Dirty /stick ink on IC Too much ink on printer head Clean printer head


Abnormal IC Tube Feeding

Description Possible Cause Troubleshooting Measure
IC feeding too slow Insufficient vibration or interruption Proper adjustment of vibration amplitude of feeding device
IC stuck in tube Improper IC tube size or deformed feeding tube Replacement of feeding tube
IC stuck by positioning block Misaligned feeding tube with positioning block or improper mounting Adjustment of position of feeding tube
IC bounced up Excessive vibration Adjustment of vibration amplitude
IC stacked at positioning block Excessive inclination of feeding tube or outlet of the tube dose not contact with vibration surface flatly Adjustment of inclination of feeding tube or enable outlet of the tube to contact with vibration surface flatly


Abnormal IC Tube Outlet

Description Possible Cause Troubleshooting Measure
IC outlet too slow Improper vibration amplitude Proper adjustment of vibration amplitude of outlet device
IC stuck at tube inlet Improper tube size or misaligned inlet Replacement of tube or position of tube inlet
IC outlet alarm Sensor is shielded by foreign matter on top Remove foreign matter


Abnormal IC Tape Feeding

Description Possible Cause Troubleshooting Measure
Abnormal IC tape feeding Improper air pressure Adjustment of feeding air pressure
Improper adjustment of feeding gun Adjustment of feeding gun as required


Abnormal IC Tape Outlet

Description Possible Cause Troubleshooting Measure
Inaccurate placement position Failure to set the tape inlet device during positioning operation Reset the inlet machine and re-position outlet position
Stuck outlet tape Tape dragged too tight Adjust of tape inlet device
Folded or damaged empty tape Change with new tape
Wrong travel distance Improper adjustment of travel detection sensor Adjustment of position and signal intensity of travel detection sensor
Abnormal empty tape alarm Improper adjustment of empty tape sensor Adjustment of empty tape sensor
Abnormal tape upheaval alarm Improper adjustment of tape upheaval sensor Adjustment of tape upheaval sensor

 

Instructions to replace programming module inside SuperBOT programmers:

  1. Open the side panel on SuperBOT and disconnect cables attached to the module box.
  2. Unscrew 4ea hex screws from the top. Move the Z-nozzle assembly around in order to access the screws.
  3. Pull up the module box and set on the table.
  4. Unscrew 4ea screws from the top for the affected module so that it will be loose.
  5. Set the box upside down and unscrew 6 screws (3ea from each side) and remove the metal box slowly so as not to damage the connected cables.
  6. Exchange the module.
