Extreme Testing

Panasonic Toughbook® mobile computers must endure torturous tests at Panasonic R&D and quality assurance facilities on a daily basis. These rigorous tests have been ongoing for more than a decade as Panasonic technicians continue their quest for even higher levels of computer reliability and performance under the harshest conditions. The technicians are so demanding that more than 1,000 Toughbook mobile computers are deliberately damaged every year, just to determine how tough they really are.

Quality Assurance: Panasonic's commitment to quality is unrivaled, with more than 500 checks and tests conducted on every unit throughout the manufacturing process.

The testing program helps ensure that all newly manufactured Toughbook computers meet Panasonic's high quality standards. In addition, testing seeks to reveal any product weaknesses so that engineers can then design even greater durability and reliability into future Toughbook models.

To ensure that Toughbook computers exceed MIL-STD requirements, technicians subject the computers to a battery of factory tests. For example, the hinges on all Toughbook models are factory tested to survive 50,000 cycles, and keyboards must last for 25 million keystrokes. Panasonic's commitment to quality—at both the component and finished goods level—results in a total of more than 500 checks and tests before, during and after production, on every unit built.

The various tests that Toughbook mobile computers undergo.
