TT300-3 - Torsion Test System
Test the torsion fatigue resistance of e-passports on ICAO compliance
The TT300-3 torsion tester is designed to perform dynamic torsion stress tests with passports, e-passports, and ID-3 inlays. The purpose of this test is to determine any adverse mechanical or functional effects in the machine readable passport arising from torsional fatigue. The test system enables to twist the passports along the long axis and to test up to 8 passports simultaneously. This method accelerates fatigue due to imposed torsion, especially in the area of the antenna and associated connections if present.
The TT100-3 torsion test system is perfect for quality assurance in passport production and for passport testing in laboratories. It is helpful to ensure that the passport booklet quality meets the requirements of the ICAO. A long-lasting high quality is essential for governmental documents. Make sure your passports fulfil the requirements for global interoperability.
The calibration unit CU300 determines the passport booklet characteristics and values which are necessary to adjust the torsion tester TT300-3.
Therefore, as recommended by the ICAO, during the calibration a torque of 0.3 N-m is applied for 1 minute on the sample. The resulting torsion angle can be read off and then set on the TT300-3.
