Longmont, Colorado - Environmental test provider Cascade TEK's Front Range environmental testing facility in Longmont, Colorado was recognized this month by the Colorado Association for Manufacturing and Technology (CAMT) for its innovative product testing services. The Colorado test facility began offering product reliability testing in July of 2011.
"The response to the new Front Range facility has been very positive," said Cascade TEK Vice President Mary Babitz. "With the closing of the Oracle - APT Testing Lab to outside customers, Cascade TEK jumped on the opportunity to meet Colorado's need for environmental testing services. Between our Hillsboro, Oregon and Longmont, Colorado laboratories, our test capabilities continue to expand."
By mid January the Longmont, Colorado Laboratory will add:
o 2500lb capacity incline impact tester for ISTA package testing. Cascade TEK is ISTA Certified for package testing.
o 150g - 8' arm centrifuge for crash safety tests associated with RTCA DO-160 Avionics (The 2nd centrifuge at the Colorado lab)
o 40,000lbf electro-dynamic vibration system. (The 4th vibration system to come on line)
o Free Fall Shock Tower
"Making sure we continuously expand test capabilities is crucial to the success of Front Range," noted Babitz. "Our customer's test requirements are ever changing. It's our job to have the test equipment they need to help bring products to market as quickly as possible."
It is this dedication that has made the Colorado testing facility so successful. Front Range recently acquired certification from the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) for package testing. Cascade TEK provides a broad range of testing services for the automotive, aerospace, electronics, medical and packaging industries.
