Custom Test Development

Customized Testing Procedures

One of the most challenging parts of research and development of new products or materials is determining the best testing methods needed to retrieve the data required. Often, gathering data for new or never before tested products is difficult due to trial and error in studies, cost of testing equipment and fixtures, or a number of other variables.

Cross test engineers have years of experience working with an array of testing standards and methods to design and implement a customized testing solution to fit your project’s needs. We can work with you from start to finish of the research and development stage to ensure you have the best testing setup possible.

At Cross, we know that different products and different industries require different testing procedures. Often, they may need to meet very different or specific standards, either internal or external. We work directly with you to develop the right testing procedure for your project so you can meet any of the necessary standards.

Wide-Reaching Testing Capabilities

With capabilities in environmental testing, materials testing, flammability testing, and sun simulation testing among others, our engineers have the capability to develop an all-encompassing approach so you can get the data you need, no matter what the application.

We take an individualized approach to all of our customers, working one-on-one to devise the right testing regimen for their product, material, prototype, or component. That’s the kind of world-class customer service that sets Cross Testing apart. And one of the reasons so many companies choose Cross as their single-source testing provider.

Our wide-reaching testing capabilities allow us to mix and match testing procedures while also devising product-specific tests based on the item under test. This can provide valuable insights that may not be gleaned from standard tests.

Industry-Specific Testing Procedures

Due to our ability to customize testing procedures, we can also create industry-specific testing. For example, a car may need a specific series of tests to meet compliance regulations, pass internal quality control, or ensure that it will survive transit intact. This can mean a combination of test methods, from vibration testing to alternating climate to durability testing.

Another instance where this would be beneficial would be a company with a very particular product or small user-base. More generalized testing procedures may not provide granular enough data to provide actionable insights. Or it may even be the case that standard testing procedures may be entirely ineffective based on unique production or operating conditions.

That’s what we mean when we say we can offer unique, industry-specific testing procedures. We can design and implement custom, individualized procedures based on your needs. That way you can get the information you need in a format you can work with.

Combining Multiple Testing Procedures

Often, just one testing procedure isn’t enough to accurately predict how a product will behave in the hands of end users or in its intended operating conditions. That’s why we generally recommend combining one test with other test procedures we offer.

This can include other physical testing procedures like vibration testing or flammability testing to simulate other conditions the product may be exposed to. Or it can include environmental testing procedures like thermal shock testing, durability testing, or alternating climate testing. Combining these testing procedures is a reliable means of gathering information and generating predictions for future product behavior.

For a product to have success in the field, it needs to be able to withstand many, many stressors. When you partner with Cross for your testing needs, we’re able to simulate many of the conditions your product will face. We can also devise custom testing procedures based on your product, your industry, and your end user needs.
