Importance of Product Analysis
Applied Technical Services performs product reliability testing for clients who need to determine the durability and failure characteristics of their components. By subjecting parts to numerous, identical cycles of forces and environmental conditions that replicate those it will encounter in service, our lab can simulate the damage they stand to incur over the course of their lifetime within a span of weeks, days, or even hours. ATS then helps clients use this data to achieve their quality assurance goals by maximizing the reliability of their product.
Also known as accelerated life cycle testing, our environmental testing division uses this method early in the development cycle to help clients discover defects or design flaws that ultimately undermine the long-term reliability of the product. The expeditious nature of the method gives clients the advanced warning they need to make any necessary adjustments before too late in the production process.
About the Method
Typically, each product reliability testing plan that we develop is unique because they are developed specific to the product and its intended use. ATS’ environmental testing division fabricates custom fixtures to apply identical cycles of pressures, stresses, and environmental agents that best mirror those the sample will endure in service. Our technicians perform this method according to client specifications to yield results relevant to their individual design process. They can either run the sample through a specified number of cycles or continuously until it fails — whichever is more relevant to the client’s testing needs. ATS can then discuss findings with clients and help them decide how best to improve the product’s durability.
