Testing, testing….

We’re in a phase of product and prototype structural testing at the moment. It’s amazing the confidence and belief you have in your new products when they have been through this test programme. It’s a crucial stage of the design process and one that all our new products will go through.

Our test simulates some of the worst conditions you’re ever likely to come across at sea and the test puts our products through a minimum of 6g and a maximum of 10g shock loading. Believe me, this is a brutal test!

I’m pleased to say that our new range of instrument pods passed this test comfortably and so we’re now on to the final tooling stages. Take a look at the video below to see how we tried to break our new products!
