MTS Acumen Electrodynamic test systems

A powerful, versatile platform from a global leader in materials testing.

MTS Acumen electrodynamic test systems deliver the capabilities researchers and test engineers need to perform high-fidelity dynamic and static tests that are vital to improving the efficiency, reliability and performance of materials and components. At its core is energy-efficient electrodynamic actuation.

Although it is not new technology, electric actuation has been used in testing applications for less than a decade. It has taken some time for electrically actuated test systems to handle the precise force and motion requirements of materials testing. These systems are a particularly good fit for biomedical testing. They are specifically designed for lower-force, high-frequency testing with high fidelity, which is exactly what many customers in this industry need.


Combining the extensive functionality MTS solutions are known for with a user-centric design, MTS Acumen systems give test professionals a fast, easy way to establish or expand in-house capacity.

These compact systems are easy to install, operate and maintain. They leverage more than four decades of MTS mechanical testing expertise, offering a solution that demonstrates their commitment to providing high-quality systems for the full spectrum of materials testing.
