Testing Services for the Shipping/Transport Market

DTB has developed test procedures for customers and, in many cases, has fixtures available for performing standardized tests. We have a full line of instrumentation available to provide our customers with the data that they need for a full evaluation of their products.

DTB performs a variety of environmental and vibration tests – many of which are covered by or similar to the type of testing that is identified in MIL-STD-810.

Besides the testing aspect of operations, we can provide a full spectrum of engineering services for failure investigation (root cause), product improvement, design/drafting, structural testing, and dynamics analysis.

We can also assist our customers with developing a test plan, procedures, reports, and item specifications for new products and their performance.
