HALT Testing Now in Colorado

Posted on Sep 18th, 2012 by marybabitz
HALT/HASS Testing at Cascade TEK

Cascade TEK’s Colorado Laboratory now performs HALT/HASS testing.   HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing) and HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening) is an excellent tool to quickly uncover latent weakness in a product.  Random vibration in six degrees of freedom, combined with very rapid temperature transitions subject the product to increasing amounts of stress and fatigue. Cascade TEK's HALT / HASS Test Lab features multiple response channels and complete reporting capabilities. In the end, a HALT or HASS test program will reduce time to market and increase product reliability.  

Due to the demanding nature of the test, HALT/HASS chambers can be expensive for OEM’s to bring in-house.  Cascade TEK’s Colorado HALT/HASS Lab allows Colorado OEM’s an opportunity to realize the benefits of a HALT/ HASS test program at a fraction of the cost. 

Cascade TEK’s Colorado customers will be in expert hands with HALT veteran Charlie Felkins.  Over a twenty year period and for 3 different HALT chamber manufacturers, Charlie has designed HALT vibration systems, performed HALT/HASS testing and presented papers at 9 IEEE Accelerated Stress Test conferences.
