The Power of Precision Engineering
Your testing success depends on fast test set-ups. Secure alignment. Accurate, high-fidelity test signals. Correct test temperature. You need high-performance you can depend on. And that means inTEST.
With inTEST, you get a single source for perfectly integrated manipulators, docking, interfaces, and thermal test systems. You get world-class engineering, unmatched experience, and the industry’s best service and support – around the clock, around the world.
Test Head Manipulators Overview
|inTEST Universal Test Head Manipulators are designed to securely hold and precisely position test heads weighing up to 1,360 kilograms (3,000 pounds). They are also designed for maximum flexibility, so you can use them with any of your wafer probers and device handlers. Our Floating-Head designs give you six degrees of motion freedom. |
inTEST’s fast test set-ups and ease of use help you substantially increase the utilization and efficiency of your test equipment.
Quick Changes Mean Quick ROI.
Other manipulators require as much as 30 minutes or more each time you change a test set-up. With inTEST, your test head is docked in as little as 5 minutes. The result? Lower test cost, fast return on investment, and maximum test floor productivity.
Extra Margins of Safety.
inTEST manipulators are engineered for high stability, with Impulse Loads designed with factors of safety equal to as much as 5 times Rated Load. Compare this to competitive manipulators,whose Impulse Load capability is typically only 2 times Rated Load.
Rugged, Durable Design for Long Life, Maximum Uptime.
inTEST manipulators are manufactured with high-strength aircraft-quality aluminum and steel. Their high-precision bearings are lightly loaded versus design capacity, to ensure ease of movement and extended service life.
Manipulators Tailored To Fit Your Need.
Aero 650 Manipulator
The Aero Series provides pneumatic power and control for larger test systems. We asked our customers what they wanted, and the result is a more compliant, easier to dock, and lighter weight universal manipulator.
in2 Manual Manipulator
The free-floating in2 Series provide counter balanced, universal performance in three sizes, for test heads weighing up to 430 kilograms (950 pounds).
M500 Compact Manipulator
The M Series, including the M400 and M500 manipulators, gives you the speed and convenience of pneumatic power for test heads up to 250 kilograms (550pounds).
Their remarkably compact size makes them a perfect fit for even the busiest test floor.

Docking Products Overview
inTEST's docking systems are designed to control the electrical and mechanical interface between two pieces of Automatic Test Equipment (ATE). This robust hardware gives you a quick, easy, and safe changeover of ATE test heads to wafer probers or package handlers. In addition to improving your test floor efficiency, inTEST docking hardware also reduces your test cost, by:
- mproving utilization and increasing the flexibility of your ATE with our Plug Compatible? technology.
- Improving accuracy and integrity of your test results.
- Reducing your ATE maintenance costs, by protecting delicate test interface components.
Improve Your Tester Utilization
- Unique features make docking and undocking faster and more efficient.
- Repeatability of test set-up improves the accuracy and integrity of your test results.
- Rugged design and materials reduce downtime for maintenance and repair.
- When you need additional units of a docking design, inTEST gives you exact duplicates. With inTEST, the docking you want is exactly the docking you’ll get, today and tomorrow.
- inTEST products provide you with the industry’s best customer service and support, around the world.
