The Exatron Model 900 Series Pick-and-Place Handler is an Automated Test Equipment (ATE) System designed for testing, programming, transfer, laser marking, and inspection of various package devices in JEDEC trays, waffle packs, and other inputs and outputs. It is a small-to-medium-volume, servo-motor based, engineering system that uses single trays, with a wide variety of inputs and outputs that can be configured for multiple sorting options. This Automated Handler is capable of handling all SMD and leaded device types and is a fast and flexible automated programming system built to meet the demands of small-to-medium volume production.

This system was used by a manufacturer of MEMS microphone products and has been configured with a custom test site for testing and handling of Microelectromechanical-Systems (MEMS) devices. The testing site has been equipped with Exatron’s own Diamond Particle Interconnect (PI) contactor sockets, designed for audio testing of MEMS microphones.

The system can be customized using Exatron standard building blocks as well as testing sockets from other suppliers, for various other MEMS and IC testing purposes:

  • Electrical MEMS testing
  • Hot/Ambient/Cold testing
  • Laser Marking
  • Light Sense Testing
  • Light Source Testing
  • Air Pressure/Vacuum Testing
  • Magnetic Testing
  • Vibration Testing

Note that you can reach out directly to Exatron if you require any assistance setting up this system to suit your specific needs. Exatron has no time limit on their product support and guarantee to service their products even when not purchased directly from the manufacturer. Exatron also promises to always offer spare parts, service contacts, and rebuilds of any of their products.
