You can find Instron at the IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego from February 14–16. At Booth 3100, we will be showcasing our unique button testing solution on electronic devices, using our 5944 single column system and hybrid XY stage. In addition, we will be demonstrating other fixtures and capabilities for static testing in microelectronics and components.

The hybrid stage has the ability to move in X and Y directions as well as rotate 360 degrees to perform compression testing of buttons at various locations, common in handheld devices. This functionality enables OEMs to test all the button features in a single, automated test run. To operate this highly reliable automated solution, our Bluehill Software offers a user-friendly experience to create test methods and produce repeatable data.
