AES’s robust test chambers simulate hot and cold temperature extremes and variations, and humidity and moisture conditions. We build salt spray and thermal shock chambers as well. While some companies rely on test labs to perform their testing, many others realize the benefits of performing their own testing in-house. These benefits include the flexibility to test according to their own schedule (and adjust if necessary), the ability to optimize the type of testing that works best for them, and substantial time and cost savings. Over the years, we have built an extensive and loyal customer base spanning the fields of aerospace, pharmacology, electronics, automotive, semiconductors, computers, and additional industries around the world. Associated Environmental Systems’ mission has always been to provide consumers with high-quality environmental test chambers that allow for independent, efficient, accurate, and controlled product testing.
