ACUTRONIC (www.acutronic.com) is the world leader in the development, design and manufacture of precision motion simulators for the aeronautics, space, defense, automotive and consumer industries. The group is headquartered in Bubikon/ZH (Switzerland), employs a total of about 120 people and has branch offices in Olten/SO (Switzerland) and in Pittsburgh, PA (USA).
ACUTRONIC’s intellectual property portfolio represents approximately 99% of the worldwide installed base of HWIL flight motion simulation systems as the company owns the assets of Contraves Goerz and CARCO Electronics. ACUTRONIC continues to leverage this technology base, together with the ACUTROL®3000, the dominant digital motion controller for HWIL simulation systems, to advance the state of the art in HWIL simulation technology.
Motion simulators designed and produced by ACUTRONIC make it possible for the customer to accurately reproduce roll, pitch and yaw motion in the laboratory. To accurately reproduce the real environment, a temperature chamber is often a requirement. Thereby all motion sequences can be tested with the conditions the test article is likely to experience in the real world. This helps significantly in accelerating the development phase for new products and lowers the overall R & D costs.
Products available from ACUTRONIC range from small, single-axis simulators for the automotive industry to three-axis simulators for flight motion profiling to five-axis simulator systems for the defense industry. Customers of ACUTRONIC include companies such as Boeing, Bosch, BAE Systems, Diehl, EADS, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, L-3 Communications, MBDA, Mitsubishi Electric Company, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and Sagem.
As a niche provider, ACUTRONIC focuses on the motion simulator market and completely covers the main market areas of Europe, USA and Asia. The integration of functional development and customer-specific engineering and design have made ACUTRONIC an industry leader. The ACUTRONIC Group derives the majority of its sales revenue from the aviation, space and defense industries, while the automotive and commercial sectors are growing rapidly.
Established in 1973, ACUTRONIC pioneered the development of the first truly digital motion control system for inertial navigation testing and hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) flight motion simulation applications. Today, the ACUTROL®3000 digital motion controller is unparalleled for these applications, with more than 320 field-proven units installed worldwide. In 2005, ACUTRONIC acquired the assets of CARCO Electronics, thereby consolidating a more than 40-year heritage of motion system technology and products with the ACUTRONIC product line.
