Digitally Controlled Shaker. (Images below show a variety of other in-house tests)

Hofstadter focuses on minimizing costs without compromising performance in both our analytical services and the other services highlighted on this page

 
C

Cooling System Design
We will design a thermal control system to allow your electronics and opto-mechanical systems to be used in diverse environments, combining off-the-shelf and custom components. Or, we can design and fabricate completely custom solutions.

E
Electronics Hardening
We are skilled in modifying commercial electronics to withstand demanding environments, and can validate our solutions using in-house vibration and shock test equipment.


V
Vibration and modal testing
We can use our NIST-traceable sensors for validating designs or evaluating field problems, or for military qualification testing.


M
Mechanical load testing
We use our hydraulic loading equipment to evaluate everything from the integrity of optical element bonds, to the strength of floor tiles.

 
S

Shock Test
In addition to our electromechanical shaker, we may use pendulum testing to evaluate the response of optical and electronic components. Pendulum testing is often a low cost, elegant solution.


O
Off-Site testing
We support testing at commercial test facilities. From test design/ quoting through monitoring, we can handle the entire process, freeing customer resources.


M
Multi-Physics Analysis
We have strong experience with many multi-physics problems, from dynamic wind-loading of structures on Mars, to fluid flow through cooling networks.
