Full Product Information

Our engineering team in Westerville, Ohio designs and builds our custom Criterion test systems. Before the start of the project, you'll meet with the engineering team to discuss requirements and scope. They will then generate a quote and work with you to finalize the design. From there, they'll build the system to the agreed upon specifications. After your acceptance, the system will be shipped to you and installed by our MTS field service team.


For custom fixture & system inquiries, please contact your MTS sales representative to start the process.
