How is life testing done, and what are the benefits? Knowing how many years a product will perform in the field can be important for OEMs in certain industries. Life testing capabilities allow us to continuously run equipment for hours and hours (or days and days) to simulate years of use and the wear and tear those years of use create. Sometimes after analyzing the test data, we make design changes that better (or increase) the machine’s functionality and life span. See the video on how we created a custom automated test fixture that simulated over 700,000 cycles and 10 years of life for a medical application. As a Motion Solutions partner, you have access to several engineering services, and our product life testing is one of those services.
