Russell Shepherd - Operations Manager
Formerly Microtek Labs, NTS Anaheim is the Leader in Materials Analysis
NTS Anaheim provides the highest level of support and services to commercial, military aerospace, medical, aerospace and automotive markets worldwide.
Recognized as an industry leader, the our capabilities extend beyond those of a typical test and R&D facility. Through involvement in professional industry groups, NTS has earned a reputation for uncommon insight and visionary thinking. We understand the value and benefits of a comprehensive LIMS and apply it in our daily operations. Our technical staff is sought after for its exceptional skills and experience and in fact are often requested to weigh in on various engineering and test program issues. We share that knowledge by authoring articles, conducting seminars and chairing national and international committees.
More Than 25 Years’ Experience in Failure Analysis
Not only have we put in the time to master failure analysis, we continue to hone our expertise. This has garnered NTS Anaheim the honored recognition of being a global leader in independent materials analysis. Our failure analysis program can provide detailed information about the performance of materials and devices for end-use applications, as well as root-cause analyses. This allows you to identify design, select, test and process deficiencies and take corrective action to enhance product reliability and performance. Our unbiased analysis converts your failure into success, helping you roll out higher quality products.
Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Testing
Printed circuit boards are the foundation for any printed circuit assembly. Our highly-qualified staff of mechanical and chemical engineers can perform physical, mechanical, electrical, visual/dimensional testing and verification at the bare board level on raw materials and assembled PCBAs. This includes evaluation to both military and commercial standards, including IPC certifications and test methods MIL-PRF-55110, MIL-PRF-31032, MIL-P-50884, ASTM and IEC.
Electronic and Electrical Testing
A core capability, NTS Anaheim has a longstanding record of success in partnering with the electronics and printed circuit board (PCB) industries. Our engineers routinely provide test program insight and development; allowing you the flexibility to enhance and/or structure programs to your specifications.
Using tensile test machines, impact testers, bend and fatigue machines and computers with state-of-the-art programmable software, our engineers mechanical test run programs for clients in electronics, composites, plastics, aerospace, automotive, medical, commercial and defense.
UL and Product Safety Testing
NTS Anaheim is a fully Certificated Lab under UL’s Third-Party Test Data Program (TPTDP) and Client Agent Program (CAP). We provide end-to-end engineering, administrative and testing services so you have the dedicated resources and knowledge to achieve UL recognition.
