Simulation and Test Lab Services

OUR ONSITE TEST LAB ENABLES US TO DELIVER FAST RESULTS ON STANDARD AND CUSTOMIZED TESTS.

Simulation and Test Lab Services.

The components and devices we manufacture must stand up to unrelenting physical, biological and chemical forces. To help our customers deliver products that provide long-term efficacy, our in-house simulation and test lab team provides a full array of standard and proprietary testing methods.

As with all areas of our company, our simulation and test lab team employ the latest technology, stay abreast of emerging advances and apply their innovative skills to develop or improve test methods. We adhere to rigorous test standards that meet or exceed FDA, ASTM, CE and ISO criteria. We can also develop test methods to address unanswered questions.

Simulation and Testing categories include the following:

  • Finite element analysis (FEA) 
  • Mechanical testing
  • Analytical testing
  • Metallography
  • Surface characterization

Immediate access to our onsite test lab enables us to deliver fast results on standard and customized tests, which can include the following:
