EMS contract manufacturer, ControlTek (www.controltek.com), has purchased 4040 Flying Probe System from SPEA (www.spea.com), a leading provider of Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) for electronic boards and testing microchips ControlTek chose SPEA due to its reputation for speed, performance, flexibility and reliability for automated test equipment.
“We are pleased that ControlTek has selected the SPEA platform as its flying probe test solution. The EMS market is continually being challenged to increase quality while reducing costs. With the implementation of the 4040, ControlTek has taken a step that will help them achieve those goals,” said Rick Brummett, regional manager of SPEA.
The SPEA 4040’s board loading design virtually enables any board configuration to be mounted into the system with no additional NRE for board carriers or fixturing. It leads to a faster turnaround time on new board development. The addition of 4040 exemplifies the overall dedication of ControlTek to economical, strategic test solutions for their customers. The addition of a machine that delivers the highest level of capability available improves the company’s ability to market products faster.
“Time to market is important to us and to our customers. The SPEA 4040 gets product to market faster by reducing debug & development time while controlling costs. Additionally, the flying probe will complement ControlTek’s existing automated optical inspection, ICT and functional test services,” said Sean Neill, VP of Operations at ControlTek.
