Averna debuts new automated test platform

Canadian test equipment maker Averna has added a new automated universal in-line test platform for partial or final electronic assemblies to their suite of test platforms.

The test platform, known as UniLine, has been designed for flexibility, meaning that it meets test requirements for multiple product types across multiple industries.

Using a dedicated station core, UniLine can automate all safety, functional, ICT, End of Line tests as well as perform part labeling and programming.

According to Averna, test automation is a key component to the manufacturing floor of the future, with factories able to become more efficient, producing high throughput at faster speeds.

Matt Jecz, director of R&D and innovation at Averna, said: “This is going to change the future of test by making automation accessible on any scale. By investing in flexible equipment like UniLine which leverages our extensive industry IP, the return on investment becomes obvious, very quickly.”

Averna said the “guiding principles” for the product’s design were “flexibility and growth.”

“Its modular design keeps the door open to design changes and product growth, without making major changes to the hardware,” the company said in a release. “Flexible fixtures allow the core of the station to remain unchanged while accommodating countless product types or variations.”
