Product reliability hardware testing is used to ensure that the quality and durability of a given product is consistent with its specifications throughout the product's intended lifecycle. This testing can be done at both the design and production levels. The product is brought to early maturity via a burn-in chamber. If a unit fails, it is investigated for defective or incorrect parts from other manufacturers. Once a real failure is proven, the remaining units produced with the failed unit get re-tested or repaired. When used in the manufacturing process, a reliability test can measure the expected reliability or increase the actual reliability of a product.
NTS product reliability testing helps you build better products that increase your profitability by improving durability in the production process, which in turn improves field performance and increases consumer confidence and decreases warranty costs. NTS can help you identify viable and practical solutions to failures discovered during the testing process. Accelerated life test methods can accelerate the normal wear of components/products by pushing them to failure and providing key insights into the areas of structural weakness. In this way, defects can be discovered and failures can be evaluated and corrected before the product is released.
