FabXpert: Program generation software for Test, Inspection and Manufacturing.

FabXpert: Program Generation Software


Program creation software for component placement, inspection and testing. FabXpert is part of Accelonix’ own software suite designed with ease of use, creation assistance and speed of development in mind.

Developed for over 10 years by Accelonix France specifically for the PCB manufacturing industry, the FabXpert program generation software offers a global solution comprising Test & Inspection, Manufacturing and Documentation modules. Benefiting from more than 30 years of experience of Accelonix’ own team, the FabXpert’s Takaya Test module is the most successful program generation tool to date, specifically designed for use with the market leading Takaya Flying Probe Systems. However, the FabXpert software also offers program generation tools for bed-of-nails testers, AOI/SPI systems as well as generic format outputs.

The modular concept is highly versatile, easy to deploy and handle, with short training times, offers high levels of performance and compatibility and allows project sharing between sites.
