1. Sandpaper and Soft Eraser Rub Durability Fixture
The fixture is designed to determine the resistance of various card printing methods to abrasion caused by rough surfaces. The fixture holds a standard ID-1 size card in a cavity and uses a calibrated weight affixed with abrasive materials (sandpaper and soft eraser) to perform the tests. The calibrated weight affixed with the abrasives is held in transport. The weight is then moved across the card surface by pushing and pulling the weight transport back and forth across the card surface.
The calibrated weight is made of stainless steel to provide years of rigorous testing and trouble-free service.

2. The Durability of Surface Printing/Tipping Fixture
The fixture holds a standard ID-1 size card in a cavity that securely holds the card in place when removing test tape.

3. Router Tool for CQM Back of Card Spot Test
The fixture is designed to prepare a card for the back of a card spot pressure test when module adhesion is tested. The battery-powered router tool conveniently and safely removes the material located behind the chip to prepare a card for the back of a card spot pressure test. It is designed to be a much safer alternative to using a razor knife. The fixture has a micrometer for fine depth adjustments and a chip location insert to accommodate both 6 and 8 contact formats.

The base of all fixtures is manufactured of aircraft-grade aluminum with a hard anodized finish for durability. It has splayed feet and aggressive non-slip rubber feet for stability.
