Testing and Fixtures

Prototyping and Testing

Testing services are a key part of closing the engineering circle. Understanding how products are tested, how they perform physically, and validating simulation models is a vital part of our overall service. Our history of testing gives us confidence in our ability to create real-world solutions to real-world problems.

Knowing when and how to use hands-on tools is just as important as knowing the theoretical ones. Understanding this keeps our development activities grounded, and allows us to get to market quicker with the right technology.

Value in Experience

TSI's team have decades of product and systems design experience across several industries. Following simulation, developing test procedures and effectively evaluating products is a key activity in “closing the loop” of the engineering cycle. Our combination of skills allows us to see the products from a physical behaviour and regulatory perspective, as well as from a test program perspective.

Tools and Facilities

Testing 1

Testing Equipment:

  • National Instruments NI cDAQ9188
  • Stress, strain and force measurement
  • Tensile tester
  • 7 channel cable robot (joint/muscle simulation)
  • Stewart platform
  • Composites cycle test platform
  • Custom fixture and software development

Additional Assurance

There is an additional benefit that can be gained from our specialization in Simulation and Analysis: we can provide a deeper understanding of the effect different design choices will have on the product prior to physical testing, and can make sure that test equipment meets the real needs of your product.
