Reading time ( words)

As part of a commitment to providing customers with the best technological systems and an unrivalled service, electronics manufacturing solutions provider AWS Electronics Group has recently invested in the high specification SPEA 4050 flying probe test machine.

Consistent growth in demand has led to increased investment in the company in recent months, having also recently installed a new surface mount technology (SMT) line at its Newcastle-under-Lyme facility in the UK. AWS is now proud to increase its testing capability through upgrading its flying probe test system at its UK site with one of the latest models available from leading supplier SPEA.

The SPEA 4050 offers a fixtureless solution, ideal for mid-volume production testing, with latest technologies ensuring reduced opportunities for errors at functional test. Installation of the new test system enables AWS to offer customers an enhanced service and flexibility unlike ever before.

“We are pleased to announce the recent investment into our UK site with both the additional SMT line and now the improved test solutions on offer with the installation of the SPEA 4050. Our prototyping, NPI and production areas will all benefit from this new flying probe test system,” said Paul Deehan, CEO AWS Group.

Initially adopted internal specifications for acceptance of printed circuit boards (PCBs) used for wire bonding was that there were no nodules or scratches allowed on the wirebond pads when inspected under 20X magnification. This paper details if wire bonding could be successfully performed over nodules and scratches and if there was a dimensional threshold where wire bonding could be successful.
