Ruggedization

Rugged Product Design for Harsh Environments

Whether you are drilling for oil through extreme temperatures or need powerful computing technology in harsh military scenarios, Benchmark has the expertise and capabilities to ruggedize products for environments where equipment cannot fail. Our expertise in ruggedization stems from our more than 20 years of work in complex, dangerous and hazardous environments for industries such as military, aerospace and defense, medical, industrial and more. 

Our process includes early analysis of thermal and vibration behavior by simulation. We also conduct extensive Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DFMEA) in the concept phase, which allows us to identify critical tests for prototypes in the design phase. We then perform highly accelerated life testing using temperature cycling and vibration, followed by the final qualification testing for absolute confidence. Our capabilities and skill sets allow us to integrate ruggedized design at any point throughout the product lifecycle, from concept to mass production.
