Maximize Your Wind Tunnel Investment

Solutions for Wind Tunnel Testing Challenges

  • Produce and Test Wind Tunnel Parts Faster

    Wind tunnel access is often restricted, which makes it necessary to quickly iterate designs and apply them to new models. Using our additive manufacturing equipment on-site, you can 3D print multiple iterations of accurate parts in hours, allowing you to rapidly improve designs and increase vehicle performance.

  • Replicate Finished Part Quality

    When testing aerodynamics, prototype components must mimic the design and surface features of finished parts. Our additive manufacturing solutions can produce aerodynamic wind tunnel testing parts with excellent surface accuracy and quality, as well as the strength and durability to maintain these properties during testing.

  • Innovative Sensing Solutions

    During aerodynamic wind tunnel testing, it’s critical to collect as much data as possible without affecting the design or slowing the iteration process. Our additive manufacturing technologies enable you to seamlessly include integrated pressure taps when printing all components, allowing you to maximize data collection while ensuring that the assembly process remains simple and fast.
