Typical measurements include:

  • Measurement of the peel strength of printed circuit board track
  • The force required to pull components from a printed circuit board
  • Strength of crimp joints
  • The push button and membrane micro-switch where the measurement of the change of resistance during depression is measured. 
  • The characterisation of a conductive gasket as it is compressed to measure the force required to reduce its electrical resistance so that it forms an effective RF seal.
  • Stable Micro Systems
  • Rudolph Research Analytical
  • Novasina
  • 3NH Colorimeter
  • Triowin
