About us

Forwessun is a global company with over 50 years’ experience in providing In-Circuit-Test (ICT) and Functional-Test (FCT) solutions to the Automated Test Equipment (ATE) industry. Our specialist teams write software and supply test equipment that allows manufacturers of printed circuit boards (PCB’s) to verify that they are working correctly before they are installed into the end product.

Unlike any of our competitors, Forwessun’s strength lies in the fact that we provide a total test solution; we cover all aspects of ATE support.

As well as manufacturing both ICT and FCT fixtures, writing test software and performing on-site installations, Forwessun also provides a comprehensive range of ICT machine services. We refurbish ICT machines to a ‘like new’ state, diagnose and repair faulty machine cards and equipment, and also perform calibrations and servicing on ICT machines.
