Guarantee top performance in every condition
Technical products are frequently exposed to natural, induced or combined environments like climatic and/or mechanical stresses. in some cases, every day of every week. Heat, cold, damp, wind and weather, extreme environmental conditions can have an extreme effect on how everything functions.
What is environmental testing?
Environmental testing simulates the different climatic conditions and mechanical stress that products are exposed during their lifetime. Sometimes environmental testing will expose weaknesses in a product’s design or performance that could occur in service, particularly at extreme levels. Manufacturers are constantly striving to demonstrate that their products are safe, reliable and compliant in every operational scenario.
Why is environmental testing important?
In general, environmental tests can prove the reliability of your products. You can demonstrate that your products have the build quality to work perfectly, no matter what the conditions. During testing, possible weaknesses can be identified and product improvements can be initiated at an early stage.
While ensuring that your products perform correctly in various environmental conditions you can demonstrate compliance of your products with international regulations, thereby increasing the possibility to gain global market access quicker and much easier.
Also the consumer trust in your products can be increased which helps you to improve your competitive market position.
How we can help you?
With us as your partner, you can be confident that your testing needs are covered, no matter how complex your product is or to which industry sector it belongs to. With globally accredited environmental testing laboratories (DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025), we verify the fitness for use of components, technical equipment and products.
Our facilities can simulate either single or multiple environmental conditions simultaneously. Our climatic chambers cover the extremes of temperature, altitude, humidity, temperature cycling, solar heating and corrosive atmospheres, which are continuously monitored by independent computer-controlled data collection systems. Our vibration shakers produce a range of profiles including; sinusoidal, random, sine on random, gunfire and bump among others, which are controlled and monitored by state of the art equipment and software.
Your partnership with TÜV SÜD connects you to a global testing and certification body that ensures your products meet every condition. For the environment and the marketplace.
