TESTING

LIDAX carries out the Development, Qualification and Acceptance test campaigns of the whole process from the definition to delivery of the space product:

–         MECHANICAL TESTING:

  • Stiffness
  • Static load
  • Fatigue
  • Weight checking
  • Vibration tests: senoidal and random excitation
  • Shock tests

–         ENVIRONMENTAL TESTING in air, vacuum and cryogenic environments:

  • Thermal cycling.
  • Balance cycling.
  • Thermal conductivity
  • Electric conductivity.

–         FUNCTIONAL TESTING of equipment, mechanisms and opto-mechanical systems in all kind of environments  (air, vacuum and cryogenic):

  • Accuracy, Repeatability, Resolution, Backlash, Runout.
  • Load capacity
  • Life cycle and survival tests
  • Power dissipation
