Durability and shock testing to ensure high-quality
Moving beyond the simple aim of preventing breakage, Alpine strives to maintain maximum durability and consistently high quality.
Alpine's customers demand consistently high performance from Alpine products.
To that end, we have adopted the use of a "durability test robot," which conducts tests to evaluate our ability to maintain optimum quality for our customers for a long time. An example is its ability to conduct continuous on/off switching tests. This robot is capable of toggling a switch repeatedly for 365 days a year, thereby enabling us to test our products under exceptionally harsh conditions—much more demanding than that in the real world.
We also conduct shock tests that subject our products to the severe, unrelenting impact load that occurs during a fall. These tests are an important part of achieving high durability and quality in our products—something that our customers recognize in long-term use.
