AN ENGINEERED SYSTEM

CONFIDENCE THROUGH QUALITY

In order for any company to offer a life time warranty, it has to be confident in its design. Before Wilcox brings a product to market, we first ask, can we engineer and innovate a solution or improve a product that will have a profound impact on the soldier? What environmental conditions it can be subjected to? Let’s take a look behind the scenes at our rigorous quality control testing.

CUSTOMER INPUT AND FEEDBACK

From the very beginning of the design phase, we work closely with our customers to ensure that the design meets the needs of their operators and has an easily tactile feel in componentry and mechanical selections to keep the operator’s attention focused on target and not on our product. We further make every effort to understand the customer response to our product once it is fielded and incorporate changes into our designs to continually improve and increase technological capability, making our products the best in the market.

LIFE CYCLE TESTING

How can Wilcox offer a life time guarantee on our helmet mounts, you ask? We are proud of the science we have developed that goes into creating our mounts and the life cycle testing is no exception. Our life cycle testing machine cycles our mounts to make sure they operate with unprecedented reliability. Each newly designed precision mechanism is cycled over 1 million times - that’s quality and engineering you can count on.

ENVIRONMENTAL TESTING

SALT FOG SCREEN

Do your missions require maritime operation? Our products endure rigorous salt fog testing to be sure our products stand up to the test of any extreme environmental exposure without risk of rusting or degrading its performance. Our qualification process takes place over the course of 96 hours in a salt fog tank - per MIL-STD-810. You know that when you buy a Wilcox product it will stand up to any environmental conditions.

TEMPERATURE CHAMBER

If our product can stand up to the temperature chamber with temperatures ranging -94° F to 392° F (70° C to plus 200° C), you can rest assured that even the most grueling mission requirements won’t compromise the integrity or performance of our products. This kind of extreme temperature testing can detect failures before any product enters the field. With such rigorous testing, you can be sure a Wilcox product will work - every time.

IMMERSION TANK

A combination of water and air pressure in our immersion pressure tank makes sure your Wilcox product can withstand the trials of a deep water mission environment. These tests simulate a diver at any given depth and pressure and pushes the limits of the air tight seal assemblies to guarantee no water or dust can invade the interior and compromise the product. We push our products to their limits to make sure that you can count on us in any conditions your mission requires.
