Bench handling is an essential part of testing for products liable to experience shock and vibration on a work bench, such as during repair, processing or operation. We provide testing to manufacturers in aerospace, transportation and defense, helping to ensure the integrity of products in virtually any environment.
In addition to determining a product’s fragility and ability to withstand mechanical shock, bench handling can be used to qualify the behavior and performance of products under stress. With the ability to test in temperatures ranging from -70 to 150 C and shock profiles, we are the ideal testing partner for bench handling programs.
Our Bench Handling Test Methods
We use multiple bench handling methods to accommodate a wide variety of product types and program requirements, including:
- Bump Testing
- Drop Testing
- Topple Impact Testing
- Freefall Impact Testing
