New Digitaltest Fixture House

Due to the general increase in demand for applications and the associated supply bottlenecks at world-renowned fixture houses, Digitaltest has decided to offer its own fixture service.

"With the development of an in-house fixture service, we see an opportunity to significantly reduce the long waiting times for the construction of fixture devices for our customers and ourselves", said Sarah Boctor-Vauvert, CEO of Digitaltest. In order to remain flexible and to be able to react quickly to customer requests, the installation of the the machine park in Cairo was extended with a new CNC milling machine. This machine is intended to strengthen the diverse production possibilities and ensure short production routes within the company.

In the past, Digitaltest has already gained experience in fixture construction in its in-house testing and repair department, for example for the Eagle MTS 180 pneumatic and the Sigma MTS 300 vacuum fixture. Also for internal benchmarks and external projects customized Condor Flying Probe fixtures were prepared. "The latest technology is our two-stage device with a lifting mechanism for the Condor Flying Probe, which allows the board to be contacted in two different steps with different needle heights and thus, for example ICT test and programming can be made together," says Sarah Boctor-Vauvert.

In addition to fixtures, Digitaltest can produce customized PCB carriers with an irregular shape or edge of less than 3 mm. The latest development consists of a Condor Flying Probe universal PCB carrier, the so-called Universal PCB Carrier, which can be used for all printed circuit boards. 

The Digitaltest In-house Fixture Service​​​​​​​ offers:  

  • Precision through professional, mechanical design and machining tools with a high precision level of 20 µm.
  • Excellent engineering with experienced mechatronics engineers, who have had extensive training on the milling machine in cooperation with a university work-study program.
  • Checking the fixture design in advance with the customer.
  • PCB analysis with test reports for tension and strain analysis ensure PCB safety and accurate test stability.
  • Transparency in the form of complete documentation and parts list reports, which can be referred to in case of future changes to the board layout.
