IGB Service Accelerated Life Time (ALT) Testing
 

Accelerated Lifetime Testing

Accelerated Lifetime Testing (ALT) simulates product usage within a condensed period of time in order to predict failures. Our consultants can also suggest design improvements and determine best maintenance practices.

As advisors to both design and certification departments, we have recognized that significant gains could be made to the standard testing practices. The life-cycle testing of a product, such as door mechanisms, retaining devices or a waste bin flap, is an integral part of the design-to-production process, but we also consider the generated data from these tests as a valuable resource.

Robust, Reliable and Flexible

Our ALT environment is now more robust and reliable thanks to our advanced equipment which provides high precision control and the great flexibility.  We can customize the ALT test to meet any customer product. The intelligence behind the ALT test is a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).

Our system's advantages are:

  • More accurate diagnostics
  • Quicker turn-around time with design changes / recommendations
  • Increased product reliability
  • All of these leading to decreased costs
