RF Contacting of Switch Connectors

Our new probe series HF66 has been developed for reliable contacting of SMD-soldered RF mini connectors like for example switch connectors or coaxial cable connectors. The special probe design makes sure that probe and DUT are well aligned in a large centering range. 


Position Sensor System Available for 75 and 157 mil

A position sensor system is the ideal solution for exact measurement and documentation of pin lengths, hole depths etc. This system can be used like a contact probe even in small centers. An integrated potentiometer allows the exact determination of the position of the DUT. 


Battery- and Cell Test

With contact elements and fixtures for the Li-ion cell production and for battery manufacturing FEINMETALL has gained a strong expertise during the last years. For formation of accumulator cells we have developed special coaxial high current Kelvin probes. 


New Tool Poster

With our new tool poster we provide you a quick overview about our tools for mounting contact probes. For a first impression you can have a look at the pdf version. On request, we will provide you a printed version by mail!

Successful electronica 2016

The electronica 2016 was very successful for Feinmetall. We are happy about the great feedback regarding our booth and we want to say thank you for visiting us and for creating good contacts!  


Investment in Production and Development

FEINMETALL has invested about six million Euro in the production and development facilities in Herrenberg, Germany. New cleanrooms and production machines, test equipment and special instruments are leading to higher capacities, lower error rates and shorter lead times. 


New Fine Pitch Probes

The market needs for contacting semiconductor components are rapidly increasing. Components are smaller and smaller and the signal frequencies of the test signals are getting higher and higher. FEINMETALL reacts on these developments with new fine pitch probes. 


Worldwide Presence

Due to the increasing globalization of the markets FEINMETALL also grows more and more in terms of inernational business. This corresponds to a considerably increasing FEINMETALL presence at international exhibitions. 


New Variants and Accessories for RF-Probe HF860

The coaxial RF-probes of the probe family HF860 are already available for a large variety of standard connectors like SMA, SMB, SMC, U.Fl. or RF. Now the HF860 is also available for contacting FAKRA-connectors and for contacting directly on PCBs.


International Visitors

This year our visitors at the exhibition productronica in Munich have been extremely international. We had the opportunity to welcome potential customers from 39 countries at our booth.


Test Contacts for USB, RJ and HDMI Interfaces

The need of contacting standard USB, RJ or HDMI connections and interfaces is increasing, not only in the field of in-circuit and functional test of PCBs but also in testing wire harness. The new FEINMETALL test contacts are currently available for various USB,RJ and HDMI-Interfaces. They can be mounted into test fixtures or modules easily and effectively.


New Generation Pneumatic Micro Switch Probe F899

Mikro-Schaltstift F899

The Pneumatic Micro Switch Probe has been developed for position test applications with limited space. The correct position of a test item can be detected by the pneumatic ascending of the plunger in combination with the integrated double switch function.
