Hands-on course into experimental techniques to determine dynamic properties of mechatronic systems in a reliable way. Participants will acquire a mix of theoretical background, do's and don’ts and practical hands-on experience.


  • The training is also available for in-company sessions.


After the course, the participant will be able to select the correct measurement method and instrumentation, perform reliable and correct measurement of the dynamic behavior of precision mechatronic devices and assess and present the results in a meaningful way.

Intended for

This course is intended for design engineers, test engineers, production qualification engineers, customer support engineers and trouble shooters who use dynamic frequency domain techniques to evaluate the behavior of precision mechatronic devices.

Prerequisites: Technical education (BSc or higher), with at least two years experience and completion of the courses Mechatronics system design (Metron1/2) or equivalent.
