Successful electronica 2018

This year's electronica in Munich was very successful for FEINMETALL, especially regarding our international activities. We would like to thank the visitors of our booth for the great interest in our company and our products! Have a look at more details and our exhibition video!

Contacting Small Connectors

The contacting of very small connectors with diameters down to 50 mil is not trivial, especially since the terminals require special mechanical measures for contacting due to their special internal structure. Depending on the required functionality and available space, there are different approaches to solutions.

Penetration of OSP Coatings

OSP (= Organic Surface Protection) is a protective layer on printed circuit boards that is transparent and hardly visible on the copper. This protective layer is considerably harder than conventional surface finishes, oxide layers or impurities and therefore difficult to penetrate.

10 Years Feinmetall Mexico

When Feinmetall founded its subsidiary in Mexico in 2008, the financial markets were in turmoil and the outcome of the company was uncertain. The balance after ten years is clear: By 2017 Feinmetall Mexico multiplied its sales to more than 3 million USD.

Awards for Feinmetall Presentations

From June 3rd to June 6th FEINMETALL was attending the Semiconductor Wafer Test Workshop (SWTW) in San Diego again - with impressive results! Two Feinmetall presentations have been awarded. Additionally the new probe card lines FeinProbe® and MµProbe® have been shown.

New Production Facilities in Herrenberg

Feinmetall has invested in a new production hall at its Herrenberg site. At the beginning of 2018, all work steps related to the mechanical processing of metal are accommodated in the new building. This creates space in the main building for further automation. In total, Feinmetall has invested around two million euros in the new production facilities in Herrenberg.


Light Contact Probe Allows Guided Terminal Insertion

The newly developed LED contact probe allows a cost saving module design. By an integrated LED within the contact probe the operator is guided through the terminal insertion process. The same module and the same contact probes can be used for the following electrical continuity check.

Reliable High Current Contacts for Critical Surfaces

For the reliable contacting of contaminated areas or critical surfaces like aluminum or nickel FEINMETALL has developed a new contact probe 1860C009 . By using three inclined contact probes, lateral scrubs on the contacted surface are realized. This significantly reduces the contact resistance compared to standard high current probes.

Exhibition review productronica 2017

This year's productronica has been very successful for us, we were especially impressed by the high number of international visitors. An exhibition is always a good place to contact professionals directly and to discuss application problems. A personal conversation cannot be replaced by anything.

New Contact Probes Catalogs

rf probes

FEINMETALL offers a wide range of contact probes for the electric, electronic and automotive industry as well as for applications in medical technology, in telecommunications, in semiconductor test and in battery cell manufacturing.

The four new application specific catalogs show the best practice solutions for each specific customer needs.

Probe Card with Spring Contact Probes as Contact Elements

In the new FEINMETALL FeinProbe® very fine spring contact probes are used as contact elements instead of buckling beams. This technology is ideal for contacting fine centers in bump applications.

Test Connector Holding Devices for Simple Mounting

Suitable holding devices allow a simple and secure mounting of all FEINMETALL test connectors. The floating design of the holding devices leads a certain flexibility regarding the position of the DUT. So even if the DUT has a certain offset or is slightly twisted, still a long-life contacting can be realized.

More


New Battery Contact Design for Higher Reliability

A new design of the existing contact probe series F650 and the introduction of the new series F652 now leads to a higher contact reliability. The new bias design makes sure that during compression the plunger is always slightly inclined and so it is ideally pushed to the barrel.

More


New Probe Series for 30 mil Centers

PCB structures are becoming smaller and smaller and require corresponding test equipment with very small centers. That's why FEINMETALL has developed new contact probes for 30 mil centers as completion to the already introduced probes for 40 and 50 mil. 

more


FEINMETALL Participation at Famous Local City Run

On Saturday, June 24th a famous local run called "Altstadtlauf" took place in the historic center of Herrenberg, Germany. For the first time a team from FEINMETALL participated in uniform shirts.

more


RF Probes for Contacting Switch Connectors

RF probes

Our new probe series HF66 has been developed for reliable contacting of SMD-soldered RF mini connectors like for example switch connectors or coaxial cable connectors. The special RF probe design makes sure that probe and DUT are well aligned in a large centering range. 

More


Position Sensor System Available for 75 and 157 mil

A position sensor system is the ideal solution for exact measurement and documentation of pin lengths, hole depths etc. This system can be used like a contact probe even in small centers. An integrated potentiometer allows the exact determination of the position of the DUT. 

More


Battery- and Cell Test

With contact elements and fixtures for the Li-ion cell production and for battery manufacturing FEINMETALL has gained a strong expertise during the last years. For formation of accumulator cells we have developed special coaxial high current Kelvin probes.

Investment in Production and Development

FEINMETALL has invested about six million Euro in the production and development facilities in Herrenberg, Germany. New cleanrooms and production machines, test equipment and special instruments are leading to higher capacities, lower error rates and shorter lead times. 

more


New Fine Pitch Probes

The market needs for contacting semiconductor components are rapidly increasing. Components are smaller and smaller and the signal frequencies of the test signals are getting higher and higher. FEINMETALL reacts on these developments with new fine pitch probes. 

more


Worldwide Presence

Due to the increasing globalization of the markets FEINMETALL also grows more and more in terms of inernational business. This corresponds to a considerably increasing FEINMETALL presence at international exhibitions.
