TÜV SÜD Product Service launched this month its automated test rig service to help manufacturers and retailers enhance their brand reputation through improved product reliability and quality.
The new service will test products that have a repetitive use, for example those that incorporate switches or hinges. TÜV SÜD will build a bespoke test rig to accommodate individual products and develop a test schedule set against expected usage for the lifecycle of the product.
Manufacturing a reliable product at an attractive price point has become a key competitive differentiator as the market demands value for money.
“Product reliability testing has become increasingly important as cash-strapped consumers demand a long product life and look for products with a positive brand image,” said Richard Poate, Senior Manager at TÜV SÜD Product Service.
