Product Qualification Testing
Testing a product can require monitoring its performance as a component in a much larger and more complicated assembly or system. Element engineers develop specialized fixtures and customized set ups--sometimes filling a room if necessary. This full-scale testing provides our clients with accurate performance information so they can plan for successful products, components, and systems.
Welding & Inspection
The laboratories of Element are staffed with Certified Welding Inspectors (CWI), Certified Welding Engineers (CWEng) and International Welding Engineers (IWE) experienced in all aspects of welding requirements for ferrous, nonferrous, and polymer properties. To help you keep up with ever-changing technological advancements, Element provides critical welding-related services.
Engineering Design & Consultancy
At the product design stage, accurate testing and evaluation can save time, money and labor by providing valuable information before production. Element engineering and failure analysis experts can test your prototype to the point of failure—both expected and unexpected—while there is still time to make critical modifications to your product or process.
