What is this? A sneak preview? An actual CAD drawing of a new design on the Internet? Nah -- they wouldn't. Would they? Probably just trying to snooker the competition.

But it sure looks good. Maybe they are just too proud of it to leave it alone.

It looks like the top view of a tool assembly with a hook in ball bearings and a motor to turn it, all part of a four-bar linkage to be moved under the wire, then held stationary by brakes while the wire lowers away to bear on the hook and be tested. And just imagine this mounted on the "E" Series mechanism and so able to test wires bonded to a work piece of virtually any size. I hear the whole large work platform goes up and down in very fine steps, and it's all controlled by microprocessor.

Well, I'm hooked. I can't wait for the formal announcement.
