Robson Technologies designed and manufactured a PCB pneumatic fixture to interface with pick & place handlers. It is capable of testing complex PCB modules in a small footprint. This fixture is compact and powerful and can include high-performance pogo pin blocks that laterally contact the sides and bottom of the DUT board. It utilizes multiple guide pins to properly align the DUT to the testbed. When actuated by the pick and place handler, the DUT hovers slightly above the point of contact with the fixture to avoid damage to DUT components. This is one of five similar “universal” fixtures for testing automotive sub-assemblies.
For use on the production line. Standoff feet below the fixture to give the option whether or not they mounted directly to test table and/or allow clearance for additional hardware. The customer needed each fixture to fit within a 400m^3 benchtop space.
PCB Pneumatic Fixture Design Features:
Simple and small with high-density contact options. Lateral grip actuation for production environments.
