CertTech announced today that the company has acquired Butterfield Engineering, a specialized test engineering firm focused on modular test systems and test software development. This announcement comes on the heels of CertTech’s March 2020 acquisition of WTI.
Providing end-to-end service and serving our customers throughout the entire product design process are two of the greatest benefits of the recent merging of CertTech and WTI. CertTech brings to the table vast expertise performing in-depth analysis of high-level product requirements in order to define the necessary test cases to get the product certified. WTI, as you know, brings a proficiency in designing and building test equipment that can execute those test cases to ensure regulatory compliance. The experience of both companies resides heavily in the aerospace industry. This experience with stringent aerospace standards (like DO-178, which has become a standard for standards) is easily translated to other industries, including automotive and medical devices.
Recently, a large industrial firm presented several hydraulic test system manufacturers with a challenge: develop a system to simulate a field installation for factory set-up and testing. Naturally everyone jumped at the chance for a line-up. Then the required system’s capabilities were outlined as follows:
It seems that several external influences are changing the way we think about Automated MRO Testing in today’s business models. The wave of challenges triggered by the recent global pandemic has led to lower throughput volumes, reduced testing staff, a loss of experienced senior operators, and a greater need for reduced costs. As a result, the way we look at the old manual processes in place for the past several years may be changing.
When the word “quality” comes up in highly regulated industries like aerospace, automotive, or medical device manufacturing, a lot comes with it into the conversation. Balancing quality assurance demands in order to maintain compliance with regulatory standards is just one part of that challenge. Another part of this is holding to those standards while also keeping product longevity in mind. After all, these are industries where once something is put into service, it’s expected to be operational for years or even decades to come. Pushing and pulling on both of these criteria are the ubiquitous demands to do more with less - and to do it faster.
