Test Fixture Design

Kinetic Vision has extensive experience in test fixture design development for testing, metrology, tooling, and assembly. With in-house machine tools and equipment, fixtures can be fabricated and assembled quickly to accelerate project timelines. When the requirements extend beyond simple work holding, mechatronics can be added to facilitate more complex needs. We integrate automation and programmed motion control to facilitate high levels of test repeatability, and have experience designing for use in non-traditional environments including high speed, dynamic, Industrial CT Scanning Systems and environmental chambers.

In this example a unique test fixture was developed that allowed for compression testing of plastic injection molded samples of parts for customers. The test stand was designed to meet specific force requirements for industry specific testing.  Another unique feature of the test fixture design was the material and equipment choice. The fixture needed to be leveraged for both bench-top use and operation during 4D CT Scanning.
