Cedrat Technolgies or CTEC is a growing high-tech SME involving 50 peoples based in the French Innovation Valley, close to Grenoble, specializing in the 4 following technology domains:
- Smart Actuators: Actuators & motors based on piezoelectric ceramics, electroactive polymers and other smart materials for nano positioning, damping, vibration & acoustic generation, micro actuation…
- Smart Sensors: Magnetic, magneto resistive, piezoelectric sensors or generators for realising Force, Torque, Position, Speed, Acceleration sensors, including contactless sensors & resonant sensors.
- Mechatronic systems: Multi-degree-of-freedom mechanisms; Motion control; Active Control of Vibrations; Vibration assistance to process; Proportional valves; Fast injectors;
- Detection systems: Structural Health Monitoring (SHM); NDT using magnetic or acoustic effects; Magnetic or acoustic localisation; Energy harvesters;
In all these domains, CTEC designs, manufactures and tests components, systems and associated electronics, following customer requirements and keeping the objective to achieve both technical and marketing success. CTEC has developed its expertise from space activities and is now spreading it in aircraft, instrumentation, optics, machine tools, medical… CTEC also performs R&D activities and transfers of technologies for mass production applications. Training activities completes technology transfers to both SMEs and large industries.
