For products that require the highest reliability, Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) can accelerate defects that may otherwise not be detected until a field failure occurs. This is done by subjecting the unit under test to rapid thermal cycling and vibration testing that can precipitate latent defects such as cold solder joints, loose fasteners, or poor wire crimps. Defects found during ESS can be addressed rapidly to determine root cause and effect a corrective action to eliminate recurrence and improve the overall quality level of the product.
Once a product is released for production, Sealevel’s extensive manufacturing capabilities provide a trouble-free pipeline to meet delivery demands. Our in-house test equipment includes modern thermal chambers and vibration stations suitable for large volume production orders requiring ESS. Whether your market is military or commercial, Sealevel offers the knowledge and tools to bring the highest level of quality to your next product design.
