Custom & Product Load Testing

Custom & Product Load Testing

Load testing is an integral part of bringing a system design into production. Calculated values alone do not necessarily give an accurate picture of how materials and products will integrate together. Load testing provides empirical data to ensure that products meet specifications and comply with required regulations and quality standards.

Products and assemblies often require testing that falls outside the norm of traditional testing. Client requirements are vast and varied. We design and fabricate frames, jigs and other bespoke items to ensure custom testing can be undertaken safely and securely to specific standards or client requirements.
