Robust Dynamics Capabilities at Element Newark

Ensure that your product is ready for mass production with our full line of dynamics testing services. Whether it’s testing materials for fatigue and corrosion or putting components through HALT/HASS accelerated stress tests, after dynamics testing, your products are far more prepared to go to market successfully once you’ve had the chance to make any needed modifications to their design and/or manufacture. That is why we have one of the most comprehensive arrays of dynamics testing services anywhere. Common services at the lab include the following:

• Acceleration Testing
• Acoustic Noise Testing
• Impact Testing
• Corrosion Testing
• Vibration Testing
• Shock Testing
