Consumer Product Testing Solutions

Ensuring the quality, safety, and reliability of consumer products is crucial for maintaining customer trust and meeting regulatory requirements. Before a product reaches the consumer, it needs to be tested for quality, performance, durability, and overall functionality. For over 30 years, we have helped consumer product companies test and validate the integrity of materials, parts, packaging, and final assembled products. Our engineering experts work with companies to develop testing methodologies, quality control inspection, and assembly testing systems to ensure a product’s quality before it leaves the factory.

Customer Challenges

Maintaining product quality during production.

Identifying and optimizing in-line and end-of-line functional and performance tests.

Managing and testing multiple product designs, variations and form factors.

Training employees on how to maintain new technology and equipment.

Every testing project is unique. Allow us to listen to your challenges and share how automation can launch your project on time.

Our Approach

We work with consumer goods manufacturers to establish product testing needs, methodologies and deliver complete automated test systems that are tailored to a customer’s application and assembly production requirements.

Consumer Product Goods Testing Methods

Functional Testing

Functional testing confirms that a product performs as intended and helps companies identify potential issues, remove defective products and make necessary improvements before products reach the market. Used for everything from consumer electronics, tools, home goods, small appliances, packaging and more, functional tests include OEE performance, electrical, mechanical, reliability, environmental and leak testing.
