Resonate Testing Limited Monthly E-Newsletter
Welcome to the 1st Edition of our New Monthly E-Newsletter for Resonate Testing. We hope you find it an informative (and short!) update on our plans as we approach the launch of our test house operations in April.
Many readers will know us as NSC, and indeed our core business continues to undertake the consulting work we have been doing for international OEM clients over the last decade. Resonate Testing is part of a wider diversification and growth strategy based on more effectively using our engineering knowledge and experience. As such it fits within a wider Group capability we aim to create:
The Nacelle Group
In this issue you’ll find a brief update on the building of our new facility, initial capabilities and recruitment progress.
Thanks for your time and interest. Do not hesitate to contact me for further info.
Facility Build Update
Our 6000sqft Facility is currently in the process of being built in Newry, Northern Ireland and will be fully operational by the end of Q1 2016. Currently, it still looks and feels like a construction site (as you can see below) but it is quickly coming together!
Resonate Testing will offer customers locally and internationally impressive capabilities with fast turnaround times.
The Facility will include a Combined Vibration and Environmental Laboratory (the only commercial facility on the Island of Ireland that can perform combined temperature and vibration testing up to 54kN), a Fire Test Laboratory and a General Mechanical Test Facility. Furthermore, the application for the Facility and Resonate Testing to become accredited to ISO 17025 is currently ongoing.
The first phase will include laboratories for:
Vibration Testing: The Resonate Testing state of the art facility will feature an IMV EM2605/SA7M- VST1200/600 Vibration Test System that has a Sine and Random force of 54kN and also has extended displacement and velocity capability to allow tests of 100mm peak to peak with velocities up to 3.5m/s to be performed. Our future expansion will include an optional chamber attachment to perform combined temperature variation and vibration testing and also the acquisition of a second synchronised shaker table.
Fire Testing: The Resonate Testing state of the art facility will also feature an FAA approved Fire Test Burner and we will have the capability of performing Vertical & Horizontal Material Testing, Seat Cushion Testing, Cargo Panel Testing and Thermal Acoustical Burn-Through Testing according to FAA & EASA requirements. This will be expanded in the future to include Flammability Testing for other industries.
Future Expansion: Later in the year we will expand to include:
Environmental Testing: Once we have agreed upon which high quality chambers to acquire, Resonate Testing state of the art facility will be able to offer a range of General Environmental Testing which are complementary to the core Vibration and Fire Testing.
Supplier selection has commenced for equipment to cover the following; Temperature Shock, Humidity, Sand and Dust, Salt Spray, Icing, Fungus and Fluid Susceptibility.
As we near closer and closer to the launch of Resonate Testing (End of Q1), the time has come to hire new team members to assist us in our quest to satisfy demand for innovative and challenging testing requirements. However, while initially NSC staff will provide support, Resonate Testing will have its own dedicated team on opening.
Get in Touch
The Roles to be filled in Q1 of 2016 include;
Against the norm of mundane recruitment techniques, we decided to host a Recruitment Night in the Canal Court Hotel (Newry) on Tuesday 12th January 2016 in order to meet potential employees but also enjoying some food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere.
The candidates were appreciative of our informal approach and the chance to meet and discuss current/future opportunities within Resonate Testing. On the other hand, we were impressed with the level of competence and commitment offered by the potential candidates.
Overall the recruitment night was a great success for Resonate Testing with over 40 potential employees in attendance giving us confidence that we are offering attractive roles within a new exciting organisation!
