Custom Testing

Westpak specializes in helping companies with specialized testing needs. Whether it is a modification to an existing test standard or a completely custom need Westpak is here to help.

Typical Procedures/Protocols

Based on standards such as:
ASTM
IEC
ISO
ISTA
UL

Screening of products

Working with you, Westpak can determine what specific test requirements may be needed for your individual/unique product. We can then customize a protocol, equipment, and test plan to meet the prerequisites of your industry, product and package system.

Some customers require 100% screening of production units to ensure the quality of the product. Typically, products will be thermally shocked or subjected to high intensity vibration.

Insertion and Removal Force

In addition to cycling the product, insertion and removal force can also be measured. Our software controlled load frames can be programmed to measure the force through an entire cycle.

Protocol Development

We can develop a reliability plan to meet your testing requirements. We can combine the most severe test inputs into one complete protocol which meet the requirements of several different specifications.

Customized Test Machines

We have created custom test equipment that is often focused on material or design comparison. Past tests machines have been designed to test a cable/connector interface, cable pulling, cycling hinges and keystroke cycles.

Product Ruggedization Studies and Field Measurements are also available.
