Dummy components

For over 30 years, researchers have used dummies in the quest to improve SMT assembly processes.

Dummies (also known as mechanical packages, test die or test vehicles) cost less than using "live" devices for a wide variety of process related applications.

Dummies come in many shapes and forms, and it is important that you use the correct ones.

You can find some of the more popular dummies in our online shop. Any other components can be ordered by contacting us.
