Quality Policy

inTEST Thermal is committed to delivering Quality Products and Services that meet or exceed our customer's expectations built on a foundation of ISO 9001. This quality policy is implemented through our motivated and informed workforce focused on Quality Objectives:

  • On-time Delivery
  • Reduction of Customer Complaints
  • Supplier Quality
  • Internal Yield
  • Continuous Improvement

Engineering

Our engineering expertise is second to none. From the thermodynamic, mechanical, electrical, and software disciplines to systems integration – all performed in-house – we ensure that our temperature systems will perform to your specifications. These capabilities give us design flexibility and rapid development turnaround time.

Mechanical designs, structural and fluid analysis are conducted
using SolidWorks modeling and simulation tools. Our internally developed simulation process ensures that components are properly sized for the test, conditioning, or tuning application.

Combining modern engineering methods and materials, our team develops reliable, high-performance thermal systems – including custom designs with the smallest footprint possible. We are one of a few companies in the world to deliver autocascade refrigeration systems down to -100°C.

Manufacturing

In-house manufacturing capabilities provide a full range of metal fabrication, machining, welding, brazing, assembly and test to deliver on every aspect of the system's specification – build, test, sight acceptance, delivery and performance.

Operating in concert with engineering, our production facility provides the flexibility to accommodate the design of standard and custom temperature systems.

We are an ISO 9001 registered company

History


Sigma Systems, founded in 1956, is renowned worldwide for its thermal platforms and environmental chambers as a custom engineering and electronics packaging firm. Sigma’s success is predicated on providing tailored solutions that match customer needs for simulating a stable environment or driving a device to precise temperatures. These application-specific solutions have given rise to a library of designs to offer as standard products.


Temptronic Corporation, the pioneer and worldwide leader in localized temperature control systems, was founded in 1970. They introduced the concept of providing precisely controlled temperature directly to a device under test at the test site or bench top. For the right device it is a more accurate and convenient alternative to using temperature chambers and baths. System portability allows customers to incorporate temperature directly into their test instead of bringing their test to the temperature source, with far greater control and accuracy compared to conventional methods.


Thermonics
specializes in standard and custom portable chillers rated for temperatures from ultra-low at -110°C to over 200°C. With cooling capacity from 100W to 50kW using air or liquid cooling, these systems provide precise temperature control and stability. Building on expertise in refrigeration and fluids mechanics over four decades, Thermonics delivers process chillers for industrial applications in semiconductors, energy, manufacturing and other markets.
