Genrad fixture weight reduction | 3 February, 2010

I have a goal to reduce the weight of about 20 test fixtures to go below 35 lbs. Most of the current fixture weights exceed 40 lbs. Does anyone have any suggestions on a lifting device or a method to reduce the weight of the fixtures?

If you are trying to reduce the weight of existing fixtures that may be more difficult and expensive than starting from scratch. If you want to reduce the weight of future fixtures and we could discuss some concepts that could save significant weight and even costs.

Contact me and maybe we can get a better understanding of the size of your boards to get a better handle on reductions.
