Fastest probe speed with XYZ Linear Motors

High-Force Linear Motors provide productivity and durability that no other motion technology could guarantee. This is why all the most advanced production equipment (e.g. latest-technology pick&place) are based on this state-of-the-art technology. SPEA Flying Probers S2 as well.

  • Top-performance linear motors on XYZ axis
  • Highest speed of movement
  • Optimized probe routing
  • Maintenance-free with no tear and wear
  • Mechanical stability over long time










Micro-SMD probing is accurate
with XYZ linear encoders


Miniaturization won’t stop and SPEA’s Flying Probe systems are ready for the future.
Their accurate positioning is made possible by High-Precision Linear Optical Encoders on each X-Y-Z axis, the only technology that provides real positioning feedback of the probes.

  • Top-performance linear optical encoders on XYZ axis
  • Micro-SMD (008004) pad accurate contacting
  • Reliable test of flexible/thin printed circuits, Sticky Boards
  • Positioning measurement stability over long time
  • Ultra-Fast Soft-Touch technology: no touch damage, no stress on PCB and Micro-SMD 





Highest measurement accuracy with the revolutionary Flying Tester Concept


The shorter the distance between probe and instruments, the faster and more accurate is the measurement. According to this simple electronical law, SPEA designed the first & unique Flying Tester in the world.
Force & measurement instruments are placed directly on each flying head, delivering unsurpassed measurement speed and performance.


  • Highest measurement performance & accuracy
  • Signal integrity
  • No measurement degradation or interference
  • Immediate signal acquisition

Unmatched probing flexibility with Top & Bottom Multi-Jig technology


Much more than simple probes.
SPEA Flying Probes S2 testers can be equipped with a wide range of top & bottom jigs, enabling the simultaneous performance of different test techniques and 100% reliability.
Discover how the exclusive SPEA's Multi-Jig technology expands probing flexibility, test capability and overall productivity, with either single-side or dual-side Flying Prober.


Top & Bottom Multi-Jigs can include:







You don't need to choose
between manual and in-line


Flying Probes S2 deliver full flexibility of use. The same system can be integrated into automatic production lines, or equipped with standard board loader/unloader magazines, or used manually. Without any mechanical adjustment.

  • Manual + Automated + In-Line board loading combined into the same system
  • Operatorless cost-saving working
  • Ergonomic manual loading of irregular-shaped PCBs
  • Pass-through or pass-back operation
  • Left-to-right or right-to-left operation
