Reid-Ashman’s Corner Cam docking solution shares the key attributes of the Linear Cam system that has made it an industry standard for decades. Corner Cam’s main difference is it positions the locking mechanisms to the corners of the docking system; doing so provides the user more application space for components, along with offering increased docking force stability. Corner Cam docking comes standard with manual docking pull-down actuation appropriate for use with the widest range of applications. Corner Cam docking is customizable with optional pneumatic or motor-driven actuation that can be incorporated into an automated One Touch Positioning setup. Corner Cam is compatible with a wide variety of OEM prober docking plates and features z-height adjustability, minimal maintenance, precision and accuracy, and improved stability.
Reid-Ashman’s time-tested standard docking system is known for its robust design features and high docking force capability. Linear Cam is a modular design that includes z-height adjustability to adapt to tolerance deviations of test cell features. Liner Cam docking comes standard with manual docking pull-down actuation and uses an elliptical ramp to achieve the highest docking forces available.
Linear Cam docking is customizable with optional pneumatic or motor-driven actuation that can be incorporated into an automated One Touch Positioning setup. The standard features, short design time, low cost, low profile capabilities, and minimal maintenance have established Linear Cam as an industry standard for all major handler, prober, and tester types.
Pin & Socket
Reid Ashman’s Pin & Socket docking is typically used with hinge type manipulators or floating interface situations where additional docking pull-down forces are not needed. The Pin & Socket system is z-height adjustable to adapt to changing requirements and compensate for test cell inconsistencies. Optional pneumatic clamping keeps the test head securely locked to the prober. Once set, it becomes a robust, repeatable, and stable docking platform for the manipulator to complete the docking process.
Our Direct Dock mechanical docking solution is designed for setups where a spring probe tower is not used. Direct Dock uses a proprietary pneumatic clamping system to simultaneously pull down and securely latch the test head. Direct Dock features a highly planer and ridged bridge beam mounted to the test head docking plate to allow for both top-load and bottom-load solutions (Patent Pending). The Direct Dock system can be scaled to support any test scenario. The clamping system is either push button or software-activated for safe and effortless operation that can be incorporated into an automated One Touch Positioning setup. Combine Direct Dock with our DIB Locker test head interface for a complete and seamless test system
Reid-Ashman’s Mechanical Docking is used worldwide due to the low cost robust design, adjustability, and repeatability. Our Mechanical Docking feature solid metal Cam Lock links to reliably achieve a consistent locking force. Course alignment pins provide visual docking assistance to facilitate quick, accurate alignment of the test head to a peripheral device. Our docking solutions combine years of experience with some of the finest designs and materials available. This is truly the heart of any repeatable setup.
