Reliability Testing

Ensure your product functions safely and without failure for its entire lifespan with Westpak’s expert testing services.

Mechanical Shock Testing

Mechanical Shock Testing

Product fragility analysis employs mechanical shock testing to determine the product's sensitivity to impact. Read more about Mechanical Shock Testing

Process

Mechanical shock tests are carefully designed to control parameters such as pulse shape, peak acceleration and duration.

Optimization

The reliability of most electromechanical products can be greatly enhanced by a carefully applied series of mechanical shock tests.

Product Drops

A product drop tester can be used to evaluate a product’s ability to survive handling. Angular orientation is maintained just before release creating an unrestrained impact.

Vibration & Resonance Testing

Vibration testing is the ability to replicate vibration that occurs in the real world to your product and/or packages in order to witness the effects and identify weaknesses. Read more about Vibration & Resonance Testing

Altitude

Companies need to make sure their packaging protects the product not only on the ground, but at the high altitudes reached during air transport. Read more about Altitude Testing

Environmental Testing

Environmental Testing

Westpak utilizes environmental chambers to evaluate the effects of a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions on products and materials.

Humidity Testing

Low humidity levels dry out bonded or glued components while high humidity may cause corrosion, gasket failure, mold, discoloration, etc.

Temperature Testing

Subjecting products to various hot and cold conditions provides insight into the effects of temperature on reliability and performance.

Thermal Shock Testing

Thermal shock testing is a process of exposing products to extremely rapid temperature changes over a wide temperature range to identify weakness.

HALT / HASS Testing

HALT / HASS Testing

Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) is a specialized reliability test during which the product is exposed to environmental stresses to the point of failure. Read more about Halt / Hass Testing

HALT Goals

Highly Accelerated Life Testing is a specialized reliability test during which the product is exposed to environmental stresses to the point of failure.

HASS Goals

Components and small parts can be exposed to Highly Accelerated Stress Screening; a quality assurance test.

Purpose of HALT / HASS

HALT or HASS testing can evaluate the robustness of products and components, and how they may perform during their expected life.
