ARL’s Reliability Testing Services are performed by knowledgeable technical staff who will provide you with quick, reliable and cost-effective consultation, execution and reporting. Our facilities allow us to perform a wide range of standard testing that meets established benchmarks in a variety of industries. We also recognize that the test doesn’t end when the data is gathered. A thorough and professional test report will quickly follow the test activity in order to document the work that was performed. This report will chart the data collected, include full test details, provide an in-depth analysis to simplify data interpretation, and list any defects that were found.
We listen to the needs of our clients and draw upon our test experience to design solutions that address client concerns within budget constraints. We not only devise test solutions that do everything from simulating the lifetime of a product to targeting specific problem areas, but we will work with your unique product to adopt our standard tests to the needs and concerns you bring us. Additionally, if you are experiencing a field failure, but aren’t sure how to address it in a controlled environment, we can advise you on the proper methods to expose the problem. After the problem is fixed, we will perform another test to verify that it is corrected. And when there isn’t an industry standard, we will apply accepted reliability principles to properly exercise a product and alleviate management concerns about warranty costs. High product reliability will bring down initial field incident returns (IFIR) and reduce the time that your engineers spend fixing product flaws. The following are the tests that we perform in our accredited lab:
