Our Thermal Cycling Testing can be used for many practical applications. A product is often subjected to thermal cycling – fluctuations in temperature and/or humidity and sometimes even vibration.
Examination of an assembly and its parts, on its own, is not always fully representative of the products’ performance and longevity in service. ITRI Innovation have a number of thermal cycling environmental test chambers that can simulate these environments.
A typical Thermal Cycling Testing programme, for a product from the aerospace industry, for example, could involve exposure to an aggressive high/low temperature regime (-50°C to 150°C) for 2000 cycles. Sampling from the thermal cycling batch would take place at regular intervals, e.g., at 0, 500, 1000 and 1500 cycles. The solder joints or component finishes would be checked after each cycle to monitor the effects or rate of degradation from the thermal cycling.
ITRI Innovation’s Thermal Cycling Testing laboratory is experienced at providing thermal cycling results, with a fast turnaround, at very competitive rates.
