Product Design CAD/CAM
In conjunction with our research and development department, MPC maintains two full-service validation test labs that are A2LA accredited to validate critical design functions and every step of the production process. We are capable of not only providing our customers with the product documentation they require, but providing it faster than our competitors by utilizing all in house resources between engineering and design to experimentation and validation testing. From flow testing to destructive testing to proprietary, long-term durability testing, we have the ability to perform and manage all of our customer’s product validation needs in house. When the testing requires, we will also manage subcontracted testing services through our qualified testing subcontractors, saving our customers the headache of managing multiple test sources for their product validation testing. Our internal testing capabilities includes: • Environmental Thermal Cycling: -55 to 315°C (-94 to 600°F) • Environmental Humidity Exposure Cycling • Air Flow & Leak: 0.5SCCM to 1000SLPM (1.7x10-5 to 35CFM) • Tension/Compression: 0 to 9000N (0 to 2000lbs) • Torque: 0 to 135N·m (0 to 100 ft·lbs) • Vibration Testing: 5 to 2000Hz / 3” Displacement • Pressure cycling: 0 to 70,000kPa (0 to 10,000psi) • Mass Measurement: 0 to 10lbs (0 to 4.5kg) • Hardness Measurement (Type A Durometer) • Extensive Variety of Dimensional Measurements • And many more with our accredited subcontracting test sources! Another important function of MPC’s lab is to perform continuous product monitoring. Manufacturing and process control parameters identified by means of design of experiments (DOE) and are analyzed through statistical and six sigma analysis techniques to ensure that only the best production techniques and quality assurance processes are used in our production operations. We then share those results and analyses with functional areas across our business, so every department can continually optimize its processes. This collaboration and knowledge sharing reinforces our commitment to delivering superior performing products.
