MTS Sistemas do Brasil, business partner to high-performance test systems and sensors supplier MTS Systems, has opened a new Innovation Center in São Jose dos Campos to provide support for Brazil’s aerospace and defense industries.
São Jose dos Campos is the Brazilian Aerospace and Defense hub and is located about 150km from the city of São Paulo. The new MTS Brazil Innovation Center is positioned in the Parque Tecnológico alongside facilities for several aerospace suppliers, universities and industry leaders such as Embraer, Airbus and Boeing.
The Innovation Center features a demonstration laboratory, customer training center, transducer calibration room and an MTS Temposonics authorized repair center.
Customers can visit the Innovation Center to see key test systems and components in use, including: MTS SilentFlo 515 Hydraulic Power Unit; MTS Landmark, Criterion and Exceed test systems; and the MTS AVX Video Extensometer. In the near future, the Innovation Center will be used to conduct specialized workshops on composites and plastics testing.
Jeffrey Graves, MTS Systems’ president and CEO, said, “This new Innovation Center is an example of our commitment to provide more local support to our Brazilian customers.
“Together with our business partner, we are able to offer higher value services such as live product demonstrations, local calibration and repair options, and training classes in Portuguese.
“In addition, location within the Brazilian Aerospace and Defense hub provides MTS and our customers the unique opportunity to quickly interface with aerospace technology leaders in both private and public sectors to help accelerate industry growth.”
