For testing a new manufacturing process of PCBs in our company, we design 2 bed of nails. One bed will have about 80 nails while the other about 180. Both beds will use the same fixture that will generate the force needed to attach the nails to the pads.

Which of the beds is more likely to break due to the force applied?

  • $\begingroup$ Please provide more information. Why would either fixture break? It also seems like a diagram or picture might help. $\endgroup$ – hazzey Dec 15 '18 at 17:55
