Cycling or Cycle Testing

Cycling simulates the repetitive use of buttons, switches, hinges, touch screens, or other product components where a high number of cycles in the in-use environment is anticipated. Often, a series of small pneumatic cylinders are arranged to produce the exact type, force level, and sequence of cycles anticipated for the product component being tested.

For example, early cellular phone users can always remember when one button on their phone failed causing the entire device to be rendered useless. An otherwise well-designed product with a poor hinge may fall apart while the product itself still functions properly.

Cycling tests take a wide variety of forms depending largely on the product design and testing requirements. These tests can provide invaluable information on product reliability as well as evaluation of new materials, vendors, and manufacturing procedures. 

Westpak engineers are experts at putting together special tests to meet the needs of each product.
