Case Study

In early September 2011, Mecmesin approached Telecom Connections Limited to see if we would be willing to provide a case study relating to the products from the “Force & Torque Test Solutions” range.

Telecom Connections Limited have been using Mecmesin products for many years to ensure that our products meet the requirements of the UL486A Standard on pull-off forces and agreed to help Mecmesin with a case study for inclusion within the section for “Crimp Pull-Off Force Testing”.

The case study provided added to the growing list of Mecmesin customers offering testimonials and solutions using their products to aid in the process of product criteria acceptance, with our case study added to the Test Solutions – Crimp Testing Cables page.

The press release can be viewed on the Test Solutions – Crimp Testing Cables solutions page or by using the direct PDF link for Solutions@Mecmesin – Crimp Testing Cables.
