Engineering - Product Validation


Product Validation

Why Product Validation?
Product Validation is a manufacturing & engineering 'maintenance' function that confirms production processing upholds the original design criteria of a product. The range of testing projects has no clearly defined boundaries, and can include anything from the application of simple techniques to the development of new methods for testing the products or parts.
Crosslink International Inc. offers full part testing and production validation support of our application designs. Generally speaking, our Product Validation methods typically involve loads or forces applied to the test specimen to determine the circumstances under which the part will fail. Crosslink International Inc. designers develop these validation tests to be accelerated in nature to quickly fail a part (48-72 hrs max).
Using static and/or dynamic loads in a radial, axial, torsional, or conical method, fatigue effects can be measured and judged by failure modes.

There are a multitude of methods to Production Validate a product. There are both destructive and non-destructive methods. We also have a variety of instruments to test materials in a similar fashion. Weather its materials or physical testing, when combining test results with statistical analysis, one can confirm our manufacturing process is satisfactory for field use.

No matter what the Validation methods are, they often use methods of National, International, and Industrial standards such as: ASTM, SAE, DIN, MIL STD, and ISO to name a few of our most common.
