Self Monitoring Structures

In cases where off the shelf materials are not suitable, Ecertec can develop a bespoke composition or material.

High quality characterisation facilities are at the heart of our development strategy.

Impedance and resonance testing is used to detect potential design or manufacturing problems quickly.

Electron microscopy (SEM & TEM) is used to design and develop materials at the microstructural level and to asses features such as electrodes, terminal bonding or multi-layer devices..

Physical displacement/force measurementsassess the validity of predicted (design) performance.

High speed digital micro-videography is used to asses performance at the device in operation. With digital analysis, measurements may be made of device motion to detect problems such as twisting, shearing or debonding.

Ecertec specialises in custom design, development and prototyping of ceramic micro-actuator devices and systems.
