Factory Acceptance Testing

We provide Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) on assets to give our clients the confidence and evidence that equipment is ready for service prior to installation.

By performing acceptance testing on new, refurbished and/or repaired equipment,  the buyer, end-user and manufacturer get assurance that the machine meets all contractual specifications from a completely independent third party. FATs ensure that the asset performs as expected, is safe to operate and functions to its full potential.

A FAT helps clients achieve an independent proof of quality, verify documents and ensure the equipment is safe to operate. Based on the results of the FAT, all parties can agree on a list of additional items that need to be addressed prior to install.
