ABOUT Inspection and Testing Services
Inspection and Testing services are professional services that provide evaluations of products, components, etc. to insure performance specifications are met, dimensional constraints fall within tolerances, etc. through the use of an array of special instruments and equipment such as coordinate measuring machines, accelerated wear testers, and so on.
Inspection and testing services allow product manufacturers to evaluate their products without investing in costly metrology and similar equipment. Most testing/inspection labs routinely employ such equipment and use it daily. Most can prepare full documentation to accompany the results of inspections and tests.
Inspection and testing services provide an impartial evaluation of products and can often act as intermediaries between clients and vendors when discrepancies and deviations from specifications arise.
While product testing is a major undertaking of many service providers, other specialties such as in-situ vibration analysis, thermographic evaluations, groundwater testing, etc. are handled by specialized firms.
Inspection Services provide dimensional, material characteristics, and similar evaluations both during and after product manufacturing.
Testing Services pertain to a number of tests that evaluate a product's electrical characteristics, weather resistance, etc.
