Accurate Engineering Installs ATG A5 Flying Probe Tester


Reading time ( words)

Accurate Engineering Inc. recently purchased an ATG A5 flying probe continuity tester. This machine uses eight test probes, four on either s (Softtouch or Micro needle probes).

The ATG A5’s smallest testable pitch is 4 mils. It can handle a PC board as thin as 0.05 mm and as thick as 2.5 mm with a maximum board size of 650 mm x 520 mm. This machine is also able to conduct high voltage tests as high as 500 V. To facilitate the further efficiency, the ATG A5 can handle flex and inner layers using its pneumatic tension shuttle.

“We felt this was a prudent purchase to help complete all the new work we’ve been receiving here at Accurate,” said Sam Sangani, owner of both Accurate Engineering Inc. and PNC Inc. “At PNC Inc., our focus on quality has become part of our identity and we hope to accomplish the same here. The ATG A5 seemed to be a logical step forward in that process.”

To further add to the speed of the process, the tester is capable of 50 scanmarks per minute while also using its four camera heads to optically check for defects.

About PNC Inc. and Accurate Engineering Inc.

At the end of 2016, PNC Inc.’s leadership fulfilled their desire to have a quality board house on the West Coast by purchasing Accurate Engineering Inc. in Sun Valley, CA. Their focus is on high-complexity flex and rigid-flex PC boards. Some of their customers include Northrop Grumman, NASA, JPL, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. By joining forces with PNC Inc. the two companies have committed themselves to providing their customers with high-quality manufacturing made in the United States.

Catching Up with Prototron’s Lee Salazar: Sales in the New Frontier

07/12/2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
In the business world, salespeople arguably were the most affected by the pandemic. These professionals had to be the most creative when trying to ply their trade. They had to work from home, make phone calls in lieu of face to face, and learn how to use social media networks and newsletters. This was all to reach their customers—who also were working from home. Even when they got vaccinated and managed to hit the road, they often found that their customers’ doors were closed and they were not allowed inside, if their particular contact was there at all. Many times, they had to resort to meeting their customers in parking lots or restaurants with outdoor dining. And guess what? It’s not even over yet. So, how does a salesperson create success when so much seems to have changed? I reached out to Lee Salazar of Prototron to learn how he met the challenges, and his tips for others who are moving forward.
