ESL Technology Inc. is a multi-purpose test lab capable of simulating a wide range of enviromental conditions, including temperature, humidity, vibration and corrosion.

Benefits of Testing:

  • Avoiding costly recalls and warranty repairs 
  • Improve your design by finding problems or avoiding over-design
  • Control your quality - find weaknesses in processes, workmanship
  • Demonstrate compliance to standards, specifications and regulations
  • Choose the correct materials for the job
  • Ensure the mechanical properties and chemical compounds of prepreg composite materials agree with supplier specifications

Design Qualification

To ensure a product can operate in its intended environment, thus avoiding costly warranty repairs or recalls. Helps you to select the most cost effective sub assemblies and components for your product.

Stress Screening

To uncover hidden defects in materials or workmanship before the product is delivered. The sooner such defects are discovered, the easier they are to correct, and the greater the cost savings.

Reliability Testing

To quantify and enhance operating life, mean time between failures, help to optimize a design and avoid costly over-design.

Materials Testing

To verify material properties, control the manufacturing processes, or help determine the best material for the product.

Package Testing

To ensure the product will arrive at the end user intact, thus avoiding the costs of repair or replacement, or spills of hazardous materials.

Test Consultations

To help you interpret test requirements, or tailor a unique test program to your specific needs.

ESL Maintains a number of data acquisition systems and sensors to track test parameters and/or the operation of the item under test.

These systems can usually accommodate custom sensors, if we do not have the one needed.

We have power supplies to supply virtually any requirements for operating the item under test.

All test instrumentation is calibrated against Standards traceable to National Standards, according to in-house procedures conforming to MIL-STD-45662.
