Accurate Engineering Installs ATG A5 Flying Probe Tester


Reading time ( words)

Accurate Engineering Inc. recently purchased an ATG A5 flying probe continuity tester. This machine uses eight test probes, four on either s (Softtouch or Micro needle probes).

The ATG A5’s smallest testable pitch is 4 mils. It can handle a PC board as thin as 0.05 mm and as thick as 2.5 mm with a maximum board size of 650 mm x 520 mm. This machine is also able to conduct high voltage tests as high as 500 V. To facilitate the further efficiency, the ATG A5 can handle flex and inner layers using its pneumatic tension shuttle.

“We felt this was a prudent purchase to help complete all the new work we’ve been receiving here at Accurate,” said Sam Sangani, owner of both Accurate Engineering Inc. and PNC Inc. “At PNC Inc., our focus on quality has become part of our identity and we hope to accomplish the same here. The ATG A5 seemed to be a logical step forward in that process.”

To further add to the speed of the process, the tester is capable of 50 scanmarks per minute while also using its four camera heads to optically check for defects.

About PNC Inc. and Accurate Engineering Inc.

At the end of 2016, PNC Inc.’s leadership fulfilled their desire to have a quality board house on the West Coast by purchasing Accurate Engineering Inc. in Sun Valley, CA. Their focus is on high-complexity flex and rigid-flex PC boards. Some of their customers include Northrop Grumman, NASA, JPL, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. By joining forces with PNC Inc. the two companies have committed themselves to providing their customers with high-quality manufacturing made in the United States.

We’ve all heard the cliché: What goes around, comes around. I’ve always felt that was especially true in our industry, with the frequent job changes people make—much accelerated in recent years but always a factor, since I can remember.
