Our solution for big PCBs
An example of double-sided contacting. The upper needle bed is aligned by the same locating pins as the sinker to achieve the highest possible precision. Since the pilot pins are in the CNC-milled needle bed, the tolerance chain is kept low and tolerances of the additively manufactured components have no influence on the accuracy of the test contact pins.
In many cases different levels are contacted. This is particularly the case when test points on the circuit board and assembled connectors have to be contacted at the same time. Spring contact pins with different lengths can be used for this. In the case of large height differences, however, indentations or elevations can also be provided in the needle bed.
