CQM TM-421 Three Wheel Tester Inner Chamber
RF Inlay Sheet Tester
The IST-01 is perfect for incoming material conformance testing programs as well as helping to avoid costly mistakes related to mixed up inlay inventories and improper lamination settings. Each unit is custom configured to your sheet format. A matrix of bi-colored red/green LEDs quickly indicate the Pass-Fail test results of each transponder location on the inlay.
Height & Width Gauge
A quick and accurate method to measure card body width and height according to CQM test requirements. Two digital indicator gauges are integrated within a solid stainless steel fixture designed to conveniently hold a card body in place for precise measurements. One gauge is dedicated for measuring height and the other width. Supplied with stainless steel calibration block (85,595 mm x 53,975 mm). Fixture is milled from stainless steel bar stock for durability and a long lasting finish.
A quick and accurate way to measure card body thickness according to CQM test requirements. This fixture is designed with a digital indicator gauge with a low-force probe, integrated into a fixture that conveniently holds a card body in place during the measurement of thickness. The fixture is milled from stainless steel bar stock for durability and a long lasting finish.
The corner stencil is used to quickly and accurately evaluate the card body corner radius as well as the location of card features like IC module, magstripe, hologram, signature panel, or personalization. A reference template is included, but this tool is specifically designed for customers that want to create and mount their own templates to the fixture. This can be easily done in any pre-press department.
Bending Stiffness Gauge
This fixture is designed to hold a test card in a cantilevered position. Card placement is a snap with a large tensioning knob. Once clamped in the test position, a stainless steel weight - calibrated to apply a force of 0,7N - is applied on the opposite edge of the card body. The resulting deformation is measured using the integrated ruler. It is crafted from aircraft grade 6061 aluminum alloy bar stock and electrostatically coated for a durable long-lasting finish. Fittings and test weights are made of stainless steel.
Clamping Fixtures for the Durability Test
A set of two fixtures recommended for holding a card body in a stressed position during durability testing within a climate chamber. One fixture is designed to hold a card stressed at its horizontal axis (15 +/- 1mm), while the other holds a card with the stress on the vertical axis (30 +/- 1mm). Crafted from solid blocks of aircraft grade 6061 aluminum alloy bar stock and electrostatically coated for a durable long-lasting finish.
Card Warpage Ramp (TM-410-C)
Embossed Card Warpage Ramp (TM-410-E)
This fixture is a gravity-fed ramp with defined gaps for the quick in-production Pass/Fail testing of overall card warpage. The ramp gap is calibrated to quickly identify unembossed cards with an overall warpage exceeding 1,5mm. A secondary gap identifies cards with warpage exceeding 1,3mm. Crafted from aircraft grade 6061 aluminum alloy bar stock and and electrostatically coated for a durable long-lasting finish.
This fixture holds three cards in a cantilevered position during high temperature storage in an oven. Card mounting is exactly according to the specification and placement is a snap with two large tensioning knobs. It includes a sliding steel ruler for measuring deformation after testing. The CQM TM-411 is crafted from aircraft grade 6061 aluminum alloy bar stock and electrostatically coated for a durable long-lasting finish.
Peel Strength Test Preparation Tool
The Peel Strength Preparation Tool is designed to prepare card bodies for the TM-412 Peel Strength Test. It will make precise, easily repeatable cuts, safely and quickly. Simply place the test card on the positioning plate and use the horizontal and vertical cutting heads to prepare four test strips 10 mm wide +/- 0.2 mm. It also makes the vertical scoring cut 10 mm from the vertical edge of the card as required by the standard.
Peel Strength Tester
This newly designed peel strength tester has been built to test the peel strength bond between overlay and card body according to ISO 10373 in a compact package to save space. The controls are simple and controlled by remote for easy testing. Set the vertical movement of the test gauge and it will move the force gauge to the upper and lower limits of the test without further adjustment or monitoring. The test grip has been redesigned to make it fast and easy to mount and remove test strips quickly without force. The test rollers have been optimized for easy loading and unloading of the test strips.
Adhesion & Blocking Fixture
This test fixture is designed to hold a stack of cards under a calibrated weight to measure their resistance to adhesion and blocking. Milled from stainless steel bar stock for durable long-lasting finish. Fittings and test weight are stainless steel.
Dynamic Bending & Torsion Tester
This “Four-in-One” unit was redesigned to meet new shortened bending requirements for IC cards set forth in new CQM requirements; the tester performs horizontal, vertical, shortened and the torsional bending tests simultaneously. The CQM TM-414 tests one to five cards per station: a total of 20 cards per test cycle; user can adjust speed and number of bending and torsion cycles, all depending on requirements and calibration.
Impact Resistance Tester
Traditional manual test tool designed according to industry specifications for card body impact testing. The TM-416 is configured to quickly set two drop heights to generate an impact force of 2000mmN and 10.000mmN.
Corner Impact Test Fixture
This manual test tool is designed to measure card’s resistance to delamination and cracking when subjected to corner impact. The card is secured in the weighted fixture and released from the height of 305 mm (12 inches). Impact weight is calibrated to create an impact force of 13.3 ± 0.5 N (3.0 ± 0.1 lb). TM-417 is made of stainless steel bar stock for a durable long-lasting finish. Fittings and test weights are stainless steel.
Three Wheel Tester
This completely automated machine performs the three-wheel test as outlined in Master- Card’s CQM program. A card is positioned in the machine such that the the rollers will cycle 100 times over the front (50) and then back (50) of the IC with a cycle frequency of 0,5 Hz and a downward force of 8N. After the test, the IC card should be intact and function electronically. An additional weight, for a recommended second test, with a force of 15N is also included.
Mechanical Reliability Wrapping Tool (Set of Three)
A set of three fixtures designed to apply local bending stress to an IC module embedded within a card body. The set is supplied with one fixture each for three different bending diameter: 50mm, 40mm, and 30mm. Crafted from aircraft grade 6061 aluminum alloy bar stock and electrostatically coated for a durable long-lasting finish.
Preparation Tool for the Module Spot Pressure Test
The Back of Card Spot Pressure Test Preparation Tool is designed to quickly and easily prepare card bodies for the TM-423 Spot Pressure Test. Simply mount the card body on the positioning plate and turn the handle to create a precise hole in the card body - directly behind the center of the IC module. Comes with two positioning plates - one for M2 and one for M3 modules.
Back of Card Spot Pressure Test Fixture
The TM-423 measures the amount of force required to push a smart card module from it's card body by applying pressure to the back of the module. This is done by first drilling a 6mm diameter cavity in the ca=rd body, directly behind the IC module, using the TM-423-P or similar device and then applying the force probe directly to the back of the module until it breaks free of the card body. This fixture can also be used for the TM-B02, the embossed character relief height retention test. It's manual design and analog gauge were specifically chosen to best meet the CQM requirements and day to day lab testing.
Digital Three Wheel Tester
This newly designed Three Wheel Tester has been built specifically for testing the overall face of Interactive Cards, which can contain built in devices like push buttons, displays, LEDs, but not necessarily containing a battery. The purpose of this test is to determine the mechanical robustness of an Interactive Card by moving the IC cyclically between three steel wheels rolling over Mechanically Sensitive Areas (“MSA”s).
