Mecmesin's versatile force. materials and torque testers are used by manufacturers worldwide to test the quality, strength, performance and safety of electrical, electronic and micro-electronic components and products..

Whether testing the flexure of a PCB, the force to shear-off its components, the torque to actuate a rotary switch or the pressure to trigger a membrane switch, Mecmesin can provide quality-control testing systems to ensure compliance with specification and standards.

Our Emperor control and analysis software not only monitors force/deflection (or torque/angle) but can also detect the very moment when a switching event occurs so that you have a true understanding of the performance of an electronic assembly.  Other standard applications include testing the mechanical strength of components, such as the terminal strength of a welded wire-harness,  the bond and peel strength of adhered substrates and the compression characteristics of springs.

Whatever your needs in electrical and electronic force or torque, from power transmission down to micro-circuitry, there is a suitable Mecmesin tester.

Test to ASTM, BS EN, ISO, DIN, CEN, IEC, MIL

We have over 40 years experience in solving quality control challenges. Take a look at some typical applications of our customers and contact us to see how we can provide you with an affordable testing solution.

Purchase of the MultiTest 50-xt has allowed us to extend the range of products we can test in-house and obtain more information about the failure mode of the samples.

Having an in-house test capability is essential when developing new processes and products. Having the Mecmesin tester at Cambridge Nanotherm has allowed us to reduce test cycles significantly. The software package also gives us the ability to analyse the subtle differences in adhesion mechanisms and also gives us the ability to produce detailed reports for our suppliers and customers.

Since we initiated this sample testing procedure, we have improved the consistency and level of quality of our products. The intuitive graphical illustration of the results helps us better understand the whole test and the nature of the torque characteristics, which assist in the design process.

“The MultiTest 2.5-i is very reliable and we have had no problems since we purchased it. Because it’s failure-free, accurate and has intuitive operation (very user-friendly software) it’s superior to the older control system from another supplier. It’s also worth to mention the after-sales support from ITA, Mecmesin’s Polish Distributor, is quick and efficient.”

"We have made pull-out tests for many years, but with our new equipment, we get the result much quicker and with better accuracy. We can rapidly prepare and perform advanced tests and present the result in a more precise way for both customers and our colleagues, within research and development. The new equipment enables studies of how much force is needed to make a cable or pipe start moving within a seal. The test fixture was developed at CA Mätsystem AB (Mecmesin’s distributor) in Sweden, especially for Roxtec products, in order to enable a thorough testing of all existing Roxtec solutions. All results are stored in a database providing extended knowledge for future product development, as well as, useful information for customers and sales people."

Case study
Electrical harness crimp testing equipment and fixtures
We manufacture some high specification cable assemblies where reliability is a must. In some cases, lives literally depend on the cables not having failures in situations. By using Mecmesin equipment, we can ensure that our product more than meets the UL standard by at least one and a half times the stated requirement, which is the basis of all tests performed by Telecom Connections Limited, thus increasing reliability, increasing quality and most importantly assuring the end-user that the product will meet the demands intended.

We tried to find a solution provider for our application, however no-one was able to provide a clear test method and appropriate test fixtures. We chose Mecmesin as their product is very versatile and gave us the clear, reliable results. This unique system fits perfectly to our application.
