bending testing machine / fatigue / dynamic
Test the bending fatigue resistance of e-passports on ICAO compliance
The BT310-3 bending tester is designed to perform dynamic bending stress tests with passports, e-passports, and ID-3 inlays. The purpose of this test is to determine the bending fatigue resistance of the passport booklet to fully reversed loading. The test system enables to bend the passport along the short axis or the long axis. Up to 6 passports can be processed simultaneously. This method differs from the back pocket stress method by avoiding directly applied pressure. It accelerates fatigue due to imposed bending, especially in the area of the antenna and associated connections if present.
The BT310-3 bending 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.
