Testing and instrumentation

MTU covers all aspects of validation and certification services for engine testing. We put materials, parts, components and fully assembled engines through their paces. We possess unique, world-class expertise that applies in designing and setting up the tests, carrying them out, and then evaluating the data.

When performing the various tests, MTU has its own high-tech test cells or uses test facilities at partner institutions. It employs the latest measuring technology, develops and runs its own rigorous test programs, and also creates the innovative instrumentation these require. In addition, MTU supports engine integration and flight testing of prototypes.

The digitalization trend is also shaping testing: optimized computer models enable more and more procedures to be simulated, which cuts down on expensive and time-consuming tests.
