Default Looking for motor testing houses

Hello all. I'm looking to find companies in the United States that
perform testing and evaluation on small brush-less DC motors. I'm
talking about generating torque/speed curve profiles, dynamometer
testing, winding resistance and inductance measurement, etc., not just
"yeah Wally, it spins real purdy!" kind of testing. The motors I'm
interested in testing are ~1/4HP or ~200 Watts and max unloaded RPM of
~10,000. So far searching on Google has only lead to a single
reputable lead... I'd like to avoid having to get all the equipment
myself since this is a one or two time testing and the equipment is
too pricey to justify it. Thanks in advance!

Is this for some sort of QA function? Or are you trying to find the
motor parameters as the basis for some design/analysis work? If its the
latter, can you get the data from the manufacturer? If not, your best
bet might be to look for a cal-cert lab that deals with
electromechanical transducers.

It is for QA. Essentially we have an old motor vendor we're not too
thrilled with and a new motor vendor we're feeling out. We want to
take samples of each and compare/contrast them, but also check the
real world numbers objectively. We know what the numbers *should* be,
but we'd like to verify that's what the numbers actually *are*.

Couldn't you make up a dummy load of a generator connected to the
output shaft of the motor, and then using a strobe and ammeter measure
the current draw for various loads / speeds and do that for both
motors to see if they draw comparable current for the same load and
speed?
