Cables and wires used in fighter jets are most critical things to keep the jet and the pilot safe and sound. The quality of the cable and wires must be best to ensure safety and performance. One of the famous Air Forces in the world has recently purchased Tinius Olsen's model H10kS testing machine to test the cable crimp strength, as well as the physical strength of the wiring and cable used, which can be copper or steel wire.

Our customer has been using one of our lower force models, the model H1kS, for same application for the past 8 years but has now increased their strength testing capability with the purchase of their new tester. Higher load capabilities requires grips that can hold specimens to those higher loads, so our customer has also upgraded gripping systems to hold specimens during the course of the test.
