Testing- & endurance tests
In consultation with the client, the created prototype or product can be tested en reviewed. Hooymans Products offers to provide an endurance test to examine the product lifetime. Intensive testing is extremely important when products are designed for daily use. The tests are conducted using a setup and environment as realistic as possible.
Discover the unthinkable
The importance of endurance testing proves itself repeatedly when a product is subjected to various test methods. Many unthinkable factors and differences become clear between theory and practice using the different test methods.
Endurance tests are carried out in order to test the life time of a product. It is of great importance that a new product with movable parts is tested for endurance in a correct manner. We are pleased to demonstrate our previously developed test setups.
Vibration-, impact and drop tests
In some cases, products needs to be vandal proof. In consultation with the client we design and create an appropriate test method to validate the vandalism resistance level of the final product.
Tension and compression tests
To determine the maximum load of the final product, Hooymans Products also offers tensile and compression tests. The test are conducted in a most realistic setup and environment.
Hooymans Products sets a high quality standard and therefore it is important to control the production in order to ensure that each product meets the same requirements. Processes needs to be optimized in order to minimize the margin of error and downtime.
During the realization of a prototype or first model we regularly discuss with the client the quality characteristics. Through this meetings we set up the standards in order to validate the quality during the production process.
Measurements are preformed as a quality control during the production process in order to ensure a constant level of quality. For example, an important control can be the size of a weld. Here we can measure if the weld is sufficiently burnt through the combined part, and therefore is strong enough to be able to carry the structure. These quality controls and measurements are being repeated during the production to ensure quality and safety.
The strength of a surface treatment.
There are several possibilities in order to determine the lifetime of a particular surface treatment. Hooymans Products offers two variants, a real-time variant and an accelerated test method.
Weather resistance testing
The corrosion resistance of a product can be measured accelerated by means of salt spray tests. Many times it is also interesting to investigate what the influence is of UV light at the final product, this can be done by a UV accelerated radiation test cabin. We can take care of these specific tests if this is necessary for your application. Additionally Hooymans Products has extensive experience which surface is best suitable for your application regarding the desired lifetime of your product.
A complete other way is a Weathering panel for gaining knowledge of the various options. These experiences are important to gather information about which color differences occur, for example during a certain time in the open space.
