Inline or Standalone Automated Testing Cells

Our Specialties

SCI-Mech designs, builds and installs custom-built testing cells for clients seeking to integrate automated inline testing into their production lines.

Alternately, we can create standalone testing cells for use close to production if integration is not desired.

SCI-Mech’s team of skilled engineers, programmers, electricians and tool makers have the experience and ability to bring your concept from the top floor to the shop floor and into your plant while meeting demanding deadlines and budgets.

Automated Inline Testing Equipment Video

SCI-Mech Technical Services designs, builds and installs Automated Testing Cells for in production line testing or as standalone units, to test product functions and specifications to client requirements.

This video shows automotive seat-cushion frames clamped to a conveyor pallet and transferred to an exercise station. Following the exercise, the seat cushion is transferred into a sound test enclosure (walls removed during build) where a test weight is added and the sound quality, vibration, motor current and travel distances are measured during operation and the data is collected.

Automated Seat Testing Machine | Sci Mech

Automated Inline or Standalone Test Cells

We create automated testing equipment that can be integrated into the production lines or used as standalone test stations, that can analyze functionality, durability, fatigue and load-displacement using sensors in closed-loop feedback control systems to apply and measure force, displacement, and torque along with optics to ensure quality.


  • Test electrical & mechanical functionality to assure compliance with product specifications

  • Precision control with servo motors
    Load cells to monitor applied force and product characteristics

  • Vision systems, sensors and tooling for Poka-Yoke quality assurance

  • Part marking (lasers, pin-mark, metal stamp, etc.)

  • Data acquisition, analysis, reporting and storing

  • Test result integration with plant databases


What We Can Do For You

Mechanical Engineering Design Services | Sci Mech

Mechanical Design

We offer full mechanical design services utilizing SolidWorks, from standalone test fixtures to full assembly lines. Our mechanical design team leverages decades of experience to create effective, reliable solutions to the most challenging design requirements. Our full machine shop and in-house 3D printing allow us to rapidly develop prototype components to test and evaluate tooling designs.

electrical design | Sci Mech

Electrical Design

We offer complete in-house electrical designs and control panel builds. Design and assembly are all done in-house, ensuring the highest quality standards. Electrical schematics are drawn using AutoCAD Electrical and are compliant with the Canadian or National Electrical Code in formats compliant with NFPA 79 – Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery. We are capable of delivering CE-compliant machinery.

Controls Programming | Sci Mech

Controls Programming

We are experienced in a wide variety of industrial control languages,  PLC programming, HMI development, and SCADA services. We integrate servo drives, vision systems, robots, and other specialized hardware and controllers using both PCs and PLCs (Allen-Bradley, Siemens, Omron). We can pair the flexibility and processing capabilities of PCs running LabVIEW software with the reliability and familiarity of PLCs to provide integrated systems of unique capability. SCI-Mech is a National Instruments Alliance Partner with on-staff certified LabVIEW developers.
