Typhoon 4.0 HALT / HASS Chamber

September 14th, 2014

Astronic announces the addition of HALT/HASS to the Test Engineering department, to provide Customers with a path toward more durable designs and products through destructive testing, and Accelerated Stress Screening, a short test to give assurance that the device will live through it’s expected life span and beyond.

Astronic has installed an OVS Typhoon 4.0 HALT/HASS Testing system from Qualmark Industries, a world leader in HALT/ HASS Test Equipment.  Through destructive testing, HALT process discovers the weak points in a design.  As those weak points are addressed the product itself becomes more robust, more able to withstand  the rigors of everyday life away from the manufacturing environment.

The end result of HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing), is a HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening).  Once this screen is in place, it is performed on individual production units to assure a proper service life.
