Tactile and Optical Testing of Electronic Devices

Tactile and Optical Testing of Electronic Devices

Electronic devices are becoming smaller, more complex, operate in different environments, and include several types of components that require tactile, optical, and electronic testing methods. The position of these devices in the final assembly demands precise positioning of the inspection tool in several degrees of freedom. PI offers powerful flexible motion systems for various test methods that can be integrated into customer production lines while maintaining capacity and throughput.
