Cedrat Technologies SA is a high tech SME specializing in high performance mechatronics:
- Smart Actuators : Actuators & motors based on piezoelectric materials, EAP, ultrasonic effects,
- Smart Sensors : Magnetic, magnetostrictive, piezoelectric sensors, transformers or generators ; Force, Torque, Position, Speed, contactless sensors.
- Mechatronic systems : Multi-dof mechanisms ; nano micro positioning ; motion control ; Active control / damping of Vibrations ; Vibration (Ultrasonic or sonic) assistance to process ; Proportional valves ; Fast injectors ; active / smart structures ; electro acoustic transducers ; sono reactors
- Detection systems : Health monitoring ; NDT using magnetic or acoustic effects ; Localisation
In these domains, Cedrat Technologies designs, manufactures & tests components, smart systems inc. electronics. Cedrat Technologies also performs R&D activities and transfers of technologies for mass production applications. Training activities complete these transfers .
Cedrat Technologies focus in highly-demanding mechatronic applications, as meet in air&space, defence, optronics, embedded instrumentations, machine-tool...Most of its piezo / magnetic actuators and mechanisms have been designed to withstand harsh environment (shocks, vibrations, TV) and have been space qualified. It is why its piezo / magnetic actuators & motors are used by NASA, JPL, ESA, CNES, ONERA, AIRBUS, BOEING, LOCKHEED MARTIN, SAGEM, SANDIA LAB, SENER, THALES... This robustness and high reliability are also useful for many other sectors.
Cedrat Technologies emploies 51 peoples based in the French Innovation Valley, Meylan, close to Grenoble, France. To sustain our continuous growth and meet our customers' requirements, positions are being regularly opened in every department of our company.
The R&D facilities used by CTEC to customize our technologies include advanced modelling CAD programs: ATILA 3D FEM for 3D structures coupled to electro-active materials and/or fluids; FLUX 3D FEM for magnetic engineering devices such as electric motors & sensors; MATLAB-SIMULINK, SPICE and ALTIUM for the design of the driving and control electronics; Solidworks CAD for the mechanical computation and the drawings.
The R&D facilities include also workshop facilities and Test Equipment adapted to Mechatronic: Coil winding machine; Precision assembly ; 2D/3D metrology; IPC 3 brazing; ISO 5 Clean room; Thermal-Vacuum & Climatic chambers; Vibration shakers; PCs with LABVIEW; Lab. power supplies & amplifiers for piezo & magnetic devices; Impedance & Spectrum analyser; Gauss-meter; Auto collimators ; Laser interferometers / vibrometers …
