Dummy components are exact mechanical equivalents of live components used only when the physical properties of the components are required. These components can cost as much as 80 percent less than live components, making the ideal for testing of solder processes, machine setup and other process evaluations.
Practical dummy components are used in assembly process evaluation, lead-free conversion, calibration, qualification, training and other situations where only the mechanical characteristics and not the functioning components are required.
