Testing and Fixtures

Knowing when and how to use hands-on tools is just as important as knowing the theoretical ones. Understanding this keeps our development activities grounded, and allows us to get to market quicker with the right technology.

Value in Experience

TSI's team have decades of product and systems design experience across several industries. Following simulation, developing test procedures and effectively evaluating products is a key activity in “closing the loop” of the engineering cycle. Our combination of skills allows us to see the products from a physical behaviour and regulatory perspective, as well as from a test program perspective.
