Environmental Stress Screening test chamber (ESS)

How long can your product withstand its original performance?

Products should maintain their performance even after many cycles of use, the more they stick to their original performance the higher is their quality. 

The Stress Screening Test (ESS Test) is a process to which manufacturer submit their products with the final aim to increase quality. These tests help manufacturers to highlight, whilst still at the prototype stage, those problems which, if they are not resolved during the design phase, could appear during the service life of the product whilst under normal use.

The stress screening test chamber subjects the sample being tested to greater thermal stresses compared to a traditional chamber in order to force the occurrence of latent defects, production errors or infant mortality of the product in order to intervene in the stages upstream of the production process, with the aim of correcting the problem encountered and improving the general quality.
