Sensor Testing

Whether you are testing accelerometers, inclinometers, position encoders, inertial measurement units, or other devices, Aerotech can help you with your sensor testing needs. With motion control experience dating to our founding in 1970, Aerotech has the expertise to be your preferred partner when it comes to rotary and linear motion simulation for testing the most sensitive and precise sensors and devices.


Non­-Destructive Testing & Microscopy

As exciting new measurement technologies emerge, coupled with the increased emphasis on quality control standards, many applications call for testing or inspecting a part without physically contacting it. Aerotech has extensive experience providing motion control solutions for the most demanding NDT and microscopy applications.
