Who We Are

Innovative Test Solutions, Inc., is a full-service mechanical engineering and testing laboratory specializing in the mechanical behavior of structures and structural material with a particular emphasis in the areas of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs), vibration, fatigue, fracture mechanics, creep/rupture, and friction and wear.

ITS is a team of skillfully trained engineers that design tests to meet unique stipulations and standards by using computer-aided fixture design, computer-controlled testing, and automated data acquisition.

Innovative Test Solutions (ITS) was founded in 2004 by the management and personnel of the former Materials Characterization Laboratory (MCL) in Schenectady, New York.

Management and company personnel are engineers of all disciplines, leaders in their prospective fields, and also bring years of industry experience and insight to ITS.

The services at ITS range from standard ASTM test protocols to the development of custom, one-of-a-kind test rigs coupled with advanced analytical testing procedures that allow the true and complex real-world fatigue and component properties of various metal alloys and composites to be evaluated. ITS personnel is compiled of professionals for designing tests to meet unique stipulations by using computer-aided fixture design, computer-controlled testing, and automated data acquisition. Industries serviced by ITS include: power generation, gas and oil, defense, aerospace, transportation, and biomedical systems.

Our History

ITS was founded in 2004, subsequent to the closing of the Materials Characterization Laboratory (MCL) in Schenectady, NY.

Former MCL management and personnel started the ITS laboratory with two staff engineers, four servo-hydraulic fatigue frames, and three electro-dynamic vibration shaker tables, in a roughly 2000 sq-ft space located in Scotia, NY.

In 2008, just four short years into the ITS venture, the company had outgrown the 6000 sq-ft facility, which had already expanded, forcing the company to search for another facility.

In the summer of 2009, a 22,500 sq-ft building located on Kings Road in Schenectady, NY, was purchased. Renovations were completed in late 2010 and ITS relocated its operations in the summer of 2011. Since then, ITS has continued to further expand both in capacity — and diversity — of testing services and equipment.
