Manufacturing Testing Capabilities

Testing Capabilities

At Amerequip, we not only design the best products available, but also offer state of the art testing capabilities to our customers as well. Somewhat unique for a company our size, we have a test engineer on staff who will work with our customers to help design, plan, and execute the testing needed to validate our products as part of our new product development process. You can rest assured we are testing to the most rigorous standards to assure that you are provided with a high quality, affordable product that will meet or exceed your customer’s expectations.

Strain Gauging

Our strain gauge process starts with careful selection of strain gauge locations. Locations can be identified from previous test experience, Brittle lacquer, or customer supplied FEA results (Amerequip also partners with a design firm with FEA capability)

Once strain gauge locations have been identified, our trained engineers/technicians quickly apply the gauges and wire them to our state of the art data acquisition system.

Our product is ready to test! We have 120 acres of varying terrain and temperature extremes (as low as -20° F to 100° F) to simulate nearly any condition.

Durability Testing

Amerequip remains committed to offering the most diverse selection of durability testing for your product. We employ modern PLC’s capable of controlling numerous functions, providing safety shutoffs, as well as the ability to collect data.

Some examples of the durability testing we can perform are:

  • Cycle Testing – Customer specifies normal load/conditions and expected number of cycles
  • Full function implement testing – Our technicians will operate the implement as requested for the specified number of hours
  • Endurance Testing – We can offer suggestions on overload conditions to simulate worst case scenarios or accelerate failures

Certification Testing

At Amerequip, we must comply with numerous standards in order to assure our products comply with all applicable regulations. Our team is ready to assist you with certifications such as:

  • ISO 4254
  • ANSI B71.4
  • SAE J31
