Lab Services

With over 50 years of success in the hydraulics industry, FEMA Corporation has built a reputation for developing highly engineered, reliable products. The engineering validation and verification equipment and processes that are fundamental to our success are now available to you from the FEMA Engineering Lab.

With a staff of two test engineers, five full-time lab technicians, and engineering students, the FEMA laboratory partners with clients to develop, coordinate, and validate your product within customer timelines. Our in-house engineers can design and manufacture custom test fixturing as well as controls and high sample rate data acquisition utilizing LabVIEW. In addition to this, our network of partners allows us to provide a full-service experience to ensure that your validation timeline is met.

Projects are estimated on a time and material basis. Written proposals include work scope, cost estimates, scheduling, and confidentiality agreements.
