Applied Technical Services has the resources to simulate real world wear and tear testing. Our Engineers have performed many Accelerated Life Cycle tests as well as fatigue testing on numerous parts. Our range of parts tested includes prototype parts for small business ventures to production components from large industrial and manufacturing corporations. We have replicated a lifetime of use in a matter of days or even hours. We can use the data obtained to consult on ways to improve the product’s durability or make the product more cost competitive. We work closely with your team to make sure that this testing is an accurate representation of the actual and anticipated wear and tear that your product may endure when placed in service.

We are able to test a large variety of items, whether it be qualification testing of nuclear components, proof testing your process piping system, or anything in between.
