Better docking solutions for ATE Test Systems
Docking hardware ensures proper alignment and a repeatable dock between the test head and the prober or handler. inTEST EMS expertise in system integration has created docking hardware with “plug compatibility,” allowing you to mate otherwise incompatible test heads, probers, and handlers with only minimal changes to peripheral side hardware.
The inTEST EMS Difference
Docking systems to fit your test head set-ups
Consistent, Repeatable Results
inTEST EMS Docking Systems securely dock the test head to the prober/handler with accuracies up to 20 um X, Y, and Z. You get maximum consistency and repeatability, test-to-test. We’ve designed and manufactured more than 10,000 docking systems.
Better Docking increases Test Yield
inTEST EMS Docking Systems use special high-grade materials that significantly reduce deflection to a minimum, while mitigating mechanical misalignment. With inTEST EMS, you’ll increase your OEE with fewer rejects caused by inaccurate, inconsistent setup.
Maximize test floor uptime and ATE utilization
inTEST EMS Docking Systems speed up your test floor with the power of backward compatibility. This lets you dock virtually any brand of test to any prober or handler. This dramatically speeds up changeovers, especially if you run a mix of ATE brands or models.
This advanced design automatically prevents docking action until the units are properly aligned and controls docking depth to keep probers/handlers from damaging the load board. That reduces your test cost through better ATE utilization, improved accuracy, and integrity of test results.
Imagine how much time you’ll save when you can dock all your testers, handlers, and probers without changing docking hardware!
