Environmental Simulation Testing

Almost all products are exposed to environmental influences such as temperature, climate, air pressure, water, as well as mechanical stress during their product life (e.g. for transport, during storage and at its later use). In environmental simulation tests can be tested already in the development phase, whether a product later withstands the external influences and will work as intended, with the aim of early detection of potential weaknesses and thus to avoid later costly failures, complaints and product recalls. We simulate a variety of foreseeable environmental conditions in our laboratory and check that your product will withstand these conditions and function reliably in its future operating environment.

 

Lifetime tests simulate the life cycle of the product in a very short time and can thus provide information about the reliability of a product in practical use and possible failures.

 

This means that components that are prone to failure can be replaced by more robust components and products can be improved.

The competence of our testing laboratory is monitored by the German Accreditation Body GmbH (DAkkS). We support you in the creation of a test plan tailored to your requirements, both for normative tests and for development tests. Please introduce us to your product.

Tests for environmental simulation

Climatic Tests

  • Temperature (Cold, Dry heat, Change of temperature)

  • Climate (Damp heat, climate change)

Mechanical Tests

  • Vibration (sine vibration, broad-band noise, Mixed-mode vibration test, Sine-on-random, Resonance search)

  • Mechanical shock

  • Free fall

Combined Tests

  • Vibration and shock in combination with climate (temperature and humidity)

Further Tests

  • IP protection (IPXX)

  • low / high ambient pressure

We are able to perform tests for a variety of test items, such as assemblies, components and devices from the fields of medical technology, automotive, rail, shipping, industry, consumer, outdoor
