Testing & Measurements

Testing is a critical part of the product development process.  However, testing is only as meaningful as the resulting data that can be measured, recorded, and then used to communicate performance and improve it.   Thus, a reliable set of measurement tools & devices is key to effective testing.  Here are a few kinds of tests Pipeline commonly performs during development:

  • Force and torque measurements
  • Precision weight analysis
  • Pressure (liquid and gas)
  • Precision dimensional measurements
  • Component deflection under load (load vs displacement)
  • Temperature analysis

We also work with our network of vendors to perform more sophisticated testing as needed such as cyclical or fatigue analysis.  Once testing has been performed and results gathered, Pipeline processes the data to produce meaningful charts, graphs, and other visual aids to communicate product performance and identify areas in which the product can be optimized and improved.
