Jamco America Announces Extensive Testing Service Capabilities for Entire Product Design Cycle

Jamco America, interior products supplier and turnkey aircraft interiors integrator, announced extensive testing capabilities for the aerospace, automotive, space, defense, and marine product testing industries. As a Federal Aviation Authority (FAA)-accepted dynamic test facility, Jamco America can test mechanical, static load, fire, ballistic, and environmental properties.

Jamco America experts help companies evaluate products at almost every stage in the design cycle and have been involved in dynamic tests for passenger seats; attendant seats integrated with a class divider; static tests for galleys, closets, lavatories, bar counter units, divider and ceiling panels, stowage bins, seat/seat furniture; galley décor panel upgrades; life cycle tests for flight deck cockpit doors; and slip resistance tests for lavatory floor mat changes.

Jamco America’s comprehensive dynamic test facility is one of only a small number of FAA-accepted facilities in the U.S. In addition to performing FAA tests, Jamco has been contracted to conduct dynamic test training on behalf of the FAA. As an FAA Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) Office, Jamco America can also provide consultation for FAA certification tests and their requirements.

The materials testing lab is ideal for earlier phases in the design process, when it is necessary to evaluate the mechanical properties of new materials, particularly metals and advanced composites. This test facility can evaluate the tensile strength, compression strength, and other key mechanical properties at room temperature and elevated temperature profiles. Equipped with an accelerator-type impact system, the facility is capable of testing products in highly specified acceleration profiles. It also includes extensive sensors and data acquisition technology to maximize information generated and processed from each testing profile.

The extensive testing facilities also include fire properties testing, acoustic testing, static load testing, ballistic testing, and product cycle testing to evaluate the lifecycle of a component or assembly. Jamco America can also conduct other customer-requested tests where the appropriate equipment and test specifications are available.

Regardless of the product development phase, Jamco America experts can provide extensive testing data for optimizing product performance. In addition to decades of experience in the aerospace industry, individuals on the Jamco America testing team are experienced in product testing and other applications.
