Automated Test Cart for Cutting-Edge Aerospace Company

To perform the required component validation compliance tests on equipment used in production space crafts, a leading aerospace company relied on manual test equipment. The validation testing previously called for high-level engineering staff for supervision and device operation. Additionally, the procedures required a variety of apparatus and setups to run hydrostatic and pneumatic pressure testing. The company engaged CollabraTech Solutions (CTS) to develop a fully automatic test cart that would perform the needed tests from a single platform. CTS delivered a cart equipped with an automation database that allowed the engineering staff to enter test parameters for each test component so that technicians could perform the tests quickly and with more consistency. Serialized output of the test results can now be sent directly to the customer’s enterprise system for component tracking and performance history.
