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 of products we design and develop for production in our manufacturing operation. You can be confident we are testing to the most rigorous requirements, assuring you are provided with the highest quality product to meet your standards, and those of your end users.

Strain Gauging

Our process starts with careful selection of the strain gauge locations, which can be identified from previous test experience or customer supplied FEA results.

Our strain gauge testing process allows us to make certain our designs can withstand everything your customers can 'throw at us'!

We have 40+ acres of varying terrain and temperature extremes (as low as -20° F to 100° F) to simulate nearly any condition.
