Several key performance indicators of electronics involve the use of force measurement. Components must be soldered or otherwise joined such that the assembly withstands the rigors of time and mechanical stresses. Individual components, printed circuit boards, wiring, and finished assemblies are tested using Mark-10 products in virtually every industry, from aerospace to consumer products to medical devices. Typical applications include tensile, bend, pull-off , shear, adhesive/bond, peel, delamination, and other forces to help ensure product performance and reliability.
