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, troubleshooting 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 client’s most challenging needs.
