Environmental Testing

Providing high tech products to the extremely demanding defense and space industry requires extended testing and qualification of these products.

With our in house Environmental Test Laboratory, THALES has created test facilities to perform these qualifications and over the years has built a huge arsenal of dedicated equipment and acquired the skills and know-how to perform the test and interpret their results.

For several years, Thales Cryogenics has opened up this equipment and know-how to other high-tech companies, to qualify their products to stringent industrial standards. During this period, ETL became increasingly involved in setting up tests and qualification schedules for third parties and even aided in designing and setting new standards. This consultancy is now a reliable and integral part in the ETL activities for third parties.

In addition to that, Thales Cryogenics has some valuable facilities and techniques that can help you in accomplishing difficult tasks in your production, measuring and pre-testing. These include clean room capacity and state of the art laser and electron beam welding as well as dedicated measuring facilities. For a detailed overview of these options, please download the Brochure ETL 2014 below. Combining these capabilities with the ETL offers an excellent opportunity for your company to prepare, weld, measure and qualify your products like many other companies in the field of automotive, medical appliances, communication technology and industrial electronics have experienced already.

ETL is member of the board of PLOT (Platform OmgevingsTechnologie); the Dutch society for environmental testing, for more information see www.plot.nl. ETL acts as the chairman for the advisory board for Mechanical Testing within PLOT. Lectures about environmental testing are given within companies and seminars.
