Understanding the forces required to insert a sparkplug wire (wire) onto a sparkplug (plug), independent of worker variation, is important for ergonomists, engineers, and designers. This paper describes a methodology for measuring the forces required to seat a wire onto a plug. A three-axis programmable mill was used to insert wires onto plugs mounted on a… CONTINUE READING
