Product Testing

While all packaged products have a natural ability to withstand damage from their shipping conditions, product testing can help determine endurance and evaluate reliability. By correctly evaluating your products’ fragility, the appropriate amount of packaging required to guarantee safe arrival can be developed, saving product owners time, money, and materials. Effective product testing not only yields immediate cost savings, but detecting product weaknesses early on avoids the compounded consequences over time of delivering a substandard product plagued with product defects.

What Is Product Testing?

Product Testing is a fundamental step in product development to verify the safety and general performance of any given product prior to entrance into the marketplace. Rigorous testing ensures that a product will be able to withstand not only the common stressors encountered with everyday use, but also resist the harsh conditions faced during distribution. Durability, a key indicator of performance and reliability, can be tested under simulated conditions such as extreme temperatures, humidity, altitude, thermal shock, mechanical shock, vibration, and more.

How We Evaluate and Test Your Product

Reliability Testing

Product reliability testing can help product owners ensure that product quality and durability remain consistent throughout the life cycle of the product, component, or material tested. When performing reliability testing, specific conditions are replicated to identify defects, weaknesses, or failures. This type of testing and product evaluation assesses the product’s ability to perform as designed through the duration of the intended life cycle.

Mechanical Shock

Vibration

Polymer Testing

Polymer testing is used to evaluate the performance of plastic based materials or products when faced with stressors and environmental challenges. Data gathered from this type of testing can help predict the product’s overall effectiveness, be used in product development to make improvements, and verify product safety and compliance.

Polymer

Accelerated Aging

Temperature and Humidity Testing

Temperature and humidity testing evaluates the effects of these conditions on products or materials. When subjected to harsh environments or extreme temperatures, the quality and reliability of the product can become compromised. Using environmental chambers, extreme temperature changes, pressure changes, and changes in humidity are replicated to record product performance and measure resistance.
