Four opt for new pick and place handler
Multitest says it has received multiple orders for the MT2168 XT tri-temp pick and place handler. No less than four global IDMs have chosen the MT2168 XT for their volume production.
According to Multitest, customers have chosen the MT2168 XT because of its temperature performance, high multisite capabilities, flexibility, and small floor space requirements.
The flexible contact site layout facilitates the transfer of existing applications from legacy gravity and pick-and-place handlers, by allowing for a reuse of the existing load board.
During demos and evaluations the plunging solutions fully validated the expected best first pass yield, which directly supports high daily output in volume production.
Günther Jeserer, Vice President Gravity and Pick & Place Products, comments: “Besides the discussion on the technical details, it has become obvious how important the combination of in-depth handling know-how with advanced innovation is for our customers. A new platform needs to provide reliable quality today, but also leverage the latest technology to support highest efficiency and lowest cost. The MT2168 XT leverages both: more than 30 years expertise in test handling and a next-generation architecture.”
