Cross Company Custom Test Machines

If you currently are internally testing products manually, you could likely benefit from a custom test machine. Our engineering team will review your existing internal, ISO, or ASTM test procedure and work with you to develop a machine to automate the process. Our custom test machines will also collect test data so that you can make decisions in real-time to improve your manufacturing process. With extensive experience in measurement and gage R & R, you can be sure that the testing solution our team builds will provide you with accurate and repeatable measurement data.

Utilizing custom test equipment can help you reduce risk by eliminating the opportunity for human error in your process. Also, because data is collected automatically, you know that the data you are using to make manufacturing decisions is reliable. This helps reduce the risk of bad product leaving your facility. For the same reasons, custom test machines help to raise the quality of your product because you are able to catch issues in your process early. In addition, you can also improve efficiency by automating the process.

Through automation, you are able to free up human resources so they can complete other tasks within the facility. Often, we are also able to reduce cycle time and increase throughput allowing you to test a higher percentage of your product.

The Importance of Test Machines

Test machines play a crucial role in ensuring quality, reliability, and performance in a wide range of industries. Whether you’re in automotive, electronics, medical devices, consumer goods, or any other industry that relies on excellent quality control, you know the importance of precise and accurate testing.

Custom test machines are instrumental in verifying the functionality, compliance, and durability of products during your manufacturing process. These machines are designed to simulate real-world conditions, apply specific loads, and measure performance of the product under test. And all of this can be uniquely designed and customized based on the needs of your operation or production process.

By utilizing reliable and accurate testing machines, manufacturers can subject products to thorough testing to assure quality, identify potential defects, and ensure adherence to industry standards. All while also meeting end user expectations for reliability, performance, and quality.

Benefits of Cross Test Machines

Utilizing Cross custom test machines in your production process provides several advantages to product manufacturers and OEMs. Some of these benefits include

Quality Assurance

Test machines are critical in ensuring product quality by identifying defects, weaknesses, or malfunctions before bringing those products to market. With comprehensive testing and reliable equipment, manufacturers can minimize the risk of product failures, end user dissatisfaction, or potentially even costly recalls.

Cost Savings

With test machines customized to your production process, OEMs and other manufacturers can save costs by detecting issues early in the production process. By identifying the fixing these problems, costly reworks, warranty claims, and recalls can be avoided. This quality testing saves significant cost in the long-run.

Process Optimization

Testing machines can also provide valuable insights into manufacturing processes, allowing manufacturers to identify areas for improvement, production processes that can be optimized, and enhance overall efficiency. This also allows for data-driven decision making, which helps increase productivity and reduce waste.

Custom Testing Machine Applications

We have extensive experience in creating test equipment for a wide range of industries including motorized vehicles, aerospace, consumer products, food, textiles, and medical devices. Custom machines can test for a number of parameters including durability, runout, force, torque, pressure, weight, temperature, length, gloss, and finish. Below are examples of custom test machines our team has built in the past.

  • Mattress durability tester
  • Runout measurement test machine for turbine blades
  • Vacuum chamber for leak testing
  • Measurement system for checking wall thickness of driveshafts
  • Lead grid measurement system for a battery manufacturer
