NTS Anaheim, formerly Microtek Laboratories, was established in 1986 to serve the electronic material, component, coating, composite material, resin compound, polymer and insulating material industries. NTS Anaheim provides the highest level of support and services to commercial, military aerospace, medical, aerospace and automotive markets worldwide.

Recognized as the industry leader, the capabilities of NTS Anaheim extend beyond those of a typical test and R&D facility.  Through active 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 that is applied in its daily operations. The skilled and experienced staff at NTS is often consulted on various engineering and test program issues. We share that knowledge by authoring articles, conducting seminars and chairing national and international committees.

Failure Analysis
NTS Anaheim has over 25 years of experience in electronics failure analysis. As a result we are now recognized as a leading independent materials analysis laboratory worldwide. NTS Anaheim's failure analysis program can provide detailed information regarding the performance of materials and devices for their end-use application as well as root-cause analysis. This will allow you to identify design, selection, test and process deficiencies then take corrective action to enhance product reliability and performance. Our unbiased analysis converts your failure into an asset, resulting in production of 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 PCBA's. 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
Electrical testing and analysis is a core capability of NTS Anaheim with more than 25 years' experience servicing the electronics and printed circuit board (PCB) industries. Our engineers routinely provide test program insight and development allowing customers the  flexibility to enhance and/or structure programs to their specifications.

Mechanical Testing
Our mechanical test department utilizes tensile test machines, impact testers, bend and fatigue machines and computers with state-of-the-art programmable software to run programs for clients in industries such as electronics, composites, plastics, aerospace, automotive, medical, commercial and defense.

UL & Product Safety Testing
NTS Anaheim is a fully Certificated Lab under UL's Third-Party Test Data Program (TPTDP) and Client Agent Program (CAP) providing full Engineering, Administrative, and Testing Services to provide customers with the dedicated resources and knowledge to achieve UL Recognition.
