Testing and Measurement

We have been using Labview for 15 years to test the functionality and durability of automotive products. We use sensors as feedback in closed-loop control systems to apply and measure force, displacement, torque, and optics to ensure quality. Sound quality analysis while testing functionality is experience we've gained through the automotive seating industry. In addition Sci-Mech provides solutions for durability, fatigue and load displacement testing.
