Conversion Kit Design Makes a Difference

Multitest launches local kit design team in the Philippines

Multitest makes a significant step to expand customer support. Starting May 2015 an additional design team for conversion kits will be supporting the needs of Asian customers. The local design team based in the Philippines will be the expert contact for kit related requests of customers and ensure shortest response times.

Efficient handling solutions are often based on appropriate design of the conversion kits. Customers will be able to explain their requirements directly to the designers and  will receive immediate feedback on the available design options. Understanding the conditions of each alternative provides a better basis for decision making.

Based in the close location to the customer the design kit team will be able to get clarification on open issues fast and efficiently. The overall cycle time from kit order to delivery can be substantially shortened.

Syariffuddin A. Kamarudin, Product Manager, explains: “Kit business is important for our customers and for us. Often the overall handling solution is based on innovative kit design. We are proud to offer this additional support to our customer base in Asia. We staffed the team with experienced designers. Our goal is to establish another channel for technical discussion with our customers. The designers will work with customers onsite. A thorough understanding of the customer requirements will enable them to translate it directly into a design concept.”

Combining Flexibility and Throughput Improvements for Sensor Test

Multitest has shipped first 45° high g sensor test module for kitable MT9928 gravity handler

Multitest shipped the first “Shaker” 45° high g sensor test module for the MT9928 to a major international IDM. The module allows for a two axis testing with one single stimulation on a flexible and modular handler platform. The well-established “Shaker” module, which was originally available for the MT93xx only, is now also available for the flexible and modular MT9928 gravity handler. The MT9928 has a kitable and modular architecture and therefore can be converted to different package types and configured with various loading and unloading options. The generic Multitest MEMS test approach deploys all features and functions of the standard handling system and meets the MEMS specific requirements by adding MEMS/sensor test and calibration carts with dedicated stimulus boxes. The new 45° high g sensor test solution fully continues this approach. The 45° high g sensor is dedicated for X/Y stimulation of the MEMS devices and allows for two axis testing in one single stimulation. This way one stimulation cycle time can be saved and the packages need to be touched less often, which reduces the risk of damages during test. If testing has to be done at various temperature levels this advantage multiplies. The new 45° high g module for the MT9928 gravity handler combines test time and test process optimization with more flexibility and better equipment utilization.
