Compression [1]

Testing applications of compressing, crushing, pushing force and pressure are introduced in Compression [1].
[Compress/Crush] introduces testing to evaluate the sample hardness (deformation) such as top-load testing of bottle and ball harness testing.
[Push] introduces testing to quantify operating feelings of samples such as cart pushing force testing and tactile switch feeling testing.
[Pressure] introduces testing to evaluate durability (apply and keep a certain force to the sample for the fixed time) of samples such as retort pouch durability testing.

Tactile switch feeling test

IMADA's force-displacement tester determines click feeling of tactile switches. In the video, the tester presses a switch, measuring the resistance force and graphing the measurement. The remarkable thing is that the tester presses switches by pre-set displacement. In other words, to determine the click feeling, you need to measure displacement as well as force. Then, the tester graphs force transition with reference to displacement, helping identify the hysteresis (zero reversion). Thus, the force-displacement tester handles various characteristic evaluation other than click feeling of switches.

Pressure

Retort Pouch Durability (Burst Strength) Test (Complies with the corresponding part of JIS Z0238:1998)

To determine the durability (burst strength) of heat-sealed packages such as retort pouches, keep a package pressed at a constant force with a force gauge and a dedicated fixture. IMADA offers the dedicated testing system such as the following configuration to comply with JIS, which is utilized in quality control.
