Improving Ease of Automation and Fixture Services
May 19th, 2016
With our new fixture expert on board, we not only have the experience and expertise to build out custom fixtures, automation, and material test capabilities in-house, but customers can also talk to Todd directly. So even if you are not testing at Elite at the time, we can offer additional design and automation services. Here are a few ways that our expanded skill set will streamline your testing experience and help solve your fixture headaches:
- When products have complex shapes and tight tolerances, customized fixtures are required to accurately simulate the installed conditions without interfering with operation.
- Automation improves test repeatability and minimizes completion time.
- Applications: vibration fixtures, life-cycle testing, mechanical or electrical cycling, troubleshoot operational failures, automated operational profiles, and many more.
- As part of our continuing investment in test automation and specialized support services, Elite recently welcomed Todd Bruhl to the Environmental Test team. Todd joins Elite with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University and more than 20 years of experience as a mechanical designer, machinist, and PLC programmer. He brings a unique skill set to design, fabricate, and operate custom fixtures and automation systems to meet our clients’ most challenging needs.
