Vibration measurements may well be safety-relevant, for instance during the maintenance of jet engines or for the assessment of the structural dynamics of bridges or buildings. Frequently, they help to improve product quality or to enhance energy efficiency.


Sufficiently accurate reference values and reliable measuring equipment are required to objectively measure and evaluat; both prerequisites are fulfilled due to the activities of METAS.  


Our measurement services encompass a wide variety of quantities and measuring equipment as well as the most common vibration sensors.


  • vibration measuring equipment
    • accelerometers
    • velocity sensors
    • impedance heads
    • vibration calibrators
    • charge-voltage converters
    • signal conditioners
    • vibration measuring chains


Research and Development

We use Research and Development projects to keep our measurement facilities and expertise at the forefront of technology. This enables us to provide the required services and promote innovation in the years to come.

We are interested in collaboration with industry. As a research partner of the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI), we are involved in a number of CTI projects.
