Solving Problems Through Performance Testing Combined with Engineering Services

Although WESTEST’s name implies testing only, testing’s major purpose and benefit is to help customers identify and solve problems and ultimately deliver direction for solutions. WESTEST’s vast experience with client projects affirms there is no replacement for physical testing to verify performance.

WESTEST’S comprehensive range of engineering services is a value-added capability that allows our staff to go beyond merely conducting tests and collecting and interpreting data. When design or performance problems are identified, WESTEST can efficiently and effectively recommend practical solutions. Our many years of testing experience provides practical knowledge that goes well beyond engineering theory to the core of how machines perform and fail in the real world. This leads to cost-effective durable solutions that save time and money in the process.

Our Professional Engineers and Technologists Excel in:

  • Measurement — load, force, displacement, acceleration, vibration, sound, strain
  • Collecting and recording data
  • Analyzing data and interpreting results
  • Communicating clearly to the customer
  • Identifying and solving problems
