Any of the texture analyser range can be used for the product tests listed below.

A selection of special attachments and typical measurements are also shown which are commonly used in this application area. However, this does not show the complete range of attachments available for the testing of electronic products. Test procedures include: compression, puncture/penetration, tension, fracture/bending, extrusion, cutting/shearing.

Resistance Conversion Unit

By using the Resistance Conversion Unit in conjunction with the TA.XTplus/TA.HDplus Texture Analyser's multi-channel data acquisition capability enables the characterisation of Electro-mechanical products by measuring and analysing the force-distance and resistance-distance characteristics co-incidentally. Typical applications include: 

  • 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.

Further typical applications 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
