The final pieces of Elite’s new North Annex are coming together and it will be fully operational in the coming weeks. The Fixture Fabrication machine shop is running at full capacity with the addition of a large CNC mill that accommodates plates up to four feet wide.
Three new Thermal Shock chambers are online and existing Temperature, Humidity, and Altitude chambers have been set in place. The Material and Connector testing machines are operational and our new Charpy Impact setup is ready for service. For our new Photometry Lab, the goniophotometer is installed and our 2-meter integrating sphere will be installed and calibrated next week. In the new space created by relocating additional environmental test chambers from our main building, we will be constructed two new EMC test chambers to meet automotive and military/aerospace requirements.
While we dedicated most of the new space at our North Annex for testing services, we also carved out a new Training Room to host seminars and other events for up to 20 participants. Technical experts from Elite and other industry leaders will lead classroom instruction and provide hands-on training in our lab. Please check our News and Events for more details as we begin scheduling events this fall.
Elite’s success depends on helping our customers succeed. Our goal with the North Annex is to increase our EMC and Environmental testing capacity and add new, complementary services to meet all of our customer’s needs in one location. This gives our customers an advantage over their competition by shortening test schedules, streamlining their supply chains, and delivering dependable test results that get their products to market quickly.
Stay tuned for more on our new EMC test chambers over the next few months. If you have questions about our North Annex or would like to schedule a tour, please contact us today. And if you are ready to capitalize on our new capabilities, please request a quote to experience the Elite advantage.
