atg Luther & Maelzer Extends Range of Flying Probe Test Systems


Reading time ( words)

atg Luther & Maelzer GmbH extended its range of Flying Probe test systems by launching a line for test areas of up to 40’’ width. The oversized systems complement the standard line which can load boards with sizes of up to 27’’ width.

Special network technology and aerospace applications are driving the demand for high test coverage and 4-wire testing (Kelvin test) for large PCBs. However, 4- or 8-head solutions are not satisfying customer requirements for speed and throughput. The unique and industry leading architecture of the atg Luther & Maelzer flying probe systems makes it possible to use a higher number of probes per test area resulting in faster test time and lower cost of test. To meet these requirements atg Luther & Maelzer GmbH launched the 16-,  20- and 24-head machines with test areas of up to 40’’ width. Depending on the number of test heads, the resulting maximum test area sizes are 40’’x40’’, 40’’x50’’ or 40’’x60’’.

atg Luther & Maelzer Sales Director for Europe and responsible product manager, Peter Brandt, highlights: “The new systems make our high end test methods now also available for the test of oversized PCBs. When considering that the 24 head version allows up to 15,000 contacts per minute, it is a significant leap forward for our customers.“

The procedures described for Rolls Royce were directly comparable with those described for MBDA, and the presenters were unanimous in re-emphasising the importance of working closely with their chosen PCB fabricators at all levels and all stages of design, qualification and production of their circuit boards.

Thermal Capabilities of Solder Masks: How High Can We Go?

08/24/2018 | Sven Kramer, Lackwerke Peters
This article focuses on three different coating material groups that were formulated to operate under high thermal stress and are applied at the printed circuit board manufacturing level. While used for principally different applications, these coatings have in common that they can be key to a successful thermal management concept especially in e-mobility and lighting applications.
