Mechanical Testing Services

Contech Research, Inc. provides a wide range of mechanical testing services that enables us to serve clients across a variety of business types, including computer, aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, telecommunications and military. We supply full supporting documentation for each test performed including base test rationale. In addition to standard industry tests, we design specialized testing and evaluation procedures that would evaluate the mechanical attributes that are of interested and determining the susceptibilities to certain failure mechanisms (such as Fretting Corrosion).

Contact Contech Research with any additional questions.

  We provide a wide range of mechanical testing services, including Vibration testing, both sine vibration and random vibration, and mechanical shock. Shown here is our mid size vibration shaker and slip table.
