Automation for PCB assembly

While you may have no difficulties adhering to quality requirements in the micron range, having more time is always helpful. But you’ll manage that as well. Festo helps by offering economical pick & place systems and immediately available automation solutions for the entire process chain in PCB assembly, regardless of whether THT or SMT is involved, from the line loader to in-circuit testing.

Festo as your automation partner

Festo has established itself as a reliable partner in all areas of electronics manufacturing. We’ve supported the assembly of PCBs with efficient pick & place automation from the start through the technology revolution and miniaturization. We offer axes, ISO cylinders, fast-switching valves and vacuum generators to this end, as well as other standard components such as complete electric powertrains and ready-to-install industrial robots, right on up to high-performance vision systems and smart IoT solutions.

With Festo as your partner, you’ll gain important advantages over your competition. Our industry experts provide you with straightforward support from planning to commissioning.

Automated testing of PCBs in practice

The planar surface gantry EXCM at Visatronic GmbH


Small lot quantities and prototypes make economical testing of PCBs a real challenge. A cost-effective flying probe tester was developed for this purpose.

The miniature planar surface gantry EXCM at Visatronic quickly and accurately guides the test needle to the test position, and the electric slide EGSK then lowers it onto the workpiece under test with defined force and travel distance.

Michael Gebauer, general manager of Visatronic GmbH:
“The EXCM is the ideal system component for modular, compact test automation.”
