Santa Clara, California, USA – TAKAYA announces the sale of an APT-1600FD-A Advanced Flying Probe test system for assembled PCBAs to ACTIA Electronics Inc. for their new high-mix production facility in Romulus , Michigan.

ACTIA specializes in the design, development and manufacturing of electronics for the automotive, aeronautics, rail, telecommunications, and energy industries.

The APT-1600FD-A provides average head-speed increases of up to 50% with throughput improvements of 30-50% over existing models, making it the industry’s fastest flying-probe test system. The APT-1600FD incorporates a new 10-flying-Z-axis design, including 4 vertical flying probes that provide unequaled access to test points where conventional angled probes fail to contact.
