With over 400 employees worldwide, Polytec develops, produces, and distributes optical measurement systems for research and industry. The focus is on the technology areas of vibrometry, velocimetry, surface metrology, process analytics, machine vision and other optical technologies. Whether it's in space travel, architecture, medicine, nanotechnology, or mechanical engineering – Polytec expertise is always in demand across all industries. Laser vibrometry has proven its worth as an ideal tool for materials investigations – both for the measurement of structural dynamics and for the non-destructive detection and prevention of signs of fatigue. There is a wealth of applications in functional and long-term structural monitoring and in geological issues.
Polytec manufactures a wide range of laser vibrometers that are the acknowledged gold-standard for non-contact vibration measurement. Laser Doppler vibrometers analyze samples of different size, from entire car bodies, large bridge parts over engines and actuators to micron-sized MEMS or delicate HDD components. Measuring the transfer functions, amplitudes and resonance frequencies in a non-intrusive way with the simple “point and shoot” method is the Single Point Vibrometer’s specialty.
With the laser-based MPV-800 Multipoint Vibrometer, it is possible to carry out time-synchronous measurements with up to 48 channels and represent both frequency-dependent and time-dependent deflection shapes. The fiber-optic sensor heads are freely configurable and allow to perform flexible measurements – both parallel to a surface or arranged individually around the sample.

MTS Systems is a global supplier of test systems and industrial position sensors. The company provides test and measurement solutions to determine the performance and reliability of vehicles, aircraft, civil structures, biomedical materials and devices and raw materials. Examples of MTS products include: aerodynamics simulators, seismic simulators, load frames, hydraulic actuators and sensors. The company operates in two divisions: Test and Sensors. MTS test systems are designed to simulate the forces and motions that materials, products and structures are expected to encounter. MTS Sensors are used by manufacturers of plastic injection molding machines, steel mills, fluid power, oil and gas, medical, wood product processing equipment, mobile equipment and alternative energy. Sensors division products are also used to measure fluid displacement, such as liquid levels for customers in the process industries. With the acquisition of PCB Piezotronics Inc. in 2016, MTS has increased Sensor products - microphones, vibration, pressure, force, torque, load, and strain sensors - and presence.

COMSOL is a global provider of simulation software for product design and research to technical enterprises, research labs and universities. Its COMSOL Multiphysics® product is an integrated software environment for creating physics-based models and simulation applications. A particular strength is its ability to account for coupled or multiphysics phenomena.
Add-on products expand the simulation platform for electromagnetics, structural, acoustics, fluid flow, heat transfer, and chemical applications. The Structural Mechanics Module, in particular, brings you modeling tools and functionality tailored for analyzing mechanical behavior of solid structures. Application areas include mechanical engineering, civil engineering, geomechanics, biomechanics and MEMS devices. Using the Structural Mechanics Module, you will be able to answer questions concerning, for example, stress and strain levels; deformations, stiffness, and compliance; natural frequencies; response to dynamic loads; and buckling instability, to name a few.
Combining the Structural Mechanics Module with other modules, such as the Acoustics Module and the MEMS Module, allows for further extending your models to include acoustics, vibrations, heat transfer, electromagnetics, and fluid flow effects — all within one simulation environment.
Interfacing tools enable the integration of COMSOL Multiphysics® simulations with all major technical computing and CAD tools on the CAE market. Simulation experts rely on COMSOL Compiler™ and COMSOL Server™ to deploy applications to their design teams, manufacturing departments, test laboratories, and customers throughout the world.
