Vehicle and Product Testing

Physical testing on prototypes or production parts is used to measure and evaluate design performance. We have instrumentation necessary to perform precision measurement of temperature, pressure, force, velocity, acceleration, displacement, frequency and strain measurements in our lab or in the field. Our Testing and Analysis Group uses advanced tools and established test methods to identify weak areas in a structure or part that indicate the possibility of failure.

Our capabilities include high-speed multi-channel data acquisition, mobile and remote data acquisition, and special purpose testing. Our design background equips us to perform efficient, meaningful data collection and analysis and make recommendations.

“In the Global Product Innovation group at O-I, we commissioned Palmer Associates to develop a test instrument that would allow us to quantify product innovation. The team at Palmer worked with us to define a scope and list of critical deliverables that would meet the needs of the project, but we had a hardware/software prerequisite we wanted to incorporate into the instrument. Palmer had no previous experience with our choice of HW/SW, but embraced the challenge. Marv and his team at Palmer were creative and persistent through the invention and concept phase; swift and efficient through the execution phase and comprehensive through the validation phase. The project is now complete, patents are pending and customers of O-I are engaged with this new capability thanks, in large part, to the team at Palmer.”
