We Shock Stuff

In our 2 500 m² facilities, we basically can throw anything on everything. As long as it enters our 350 mm barrel, we will do our best to achieve your requirements within the shortest period of time.  From few m/s to 7 km/s; for aerospace or civil engineering purposes, you can come we will set up the best-suited configuration for your specific need.

Tires on helicopter blades, hailstones against radomes, arrows against military shieldings or 7 km/s micrometeorid impacts, we have no limit. For certification or product development purposes, impact tests will help you set the quality of your product to  a next level.

We are THIOT INGENIERIE, WE SHOCK STUFF !

CORRELATION EXP SIMU_DETO

Better, Faster, Stronger

What's Better?
Better means 1,5% of repeatibility between shots and none residual debris during impact. A team of experienced engineers and technicians and the best of acquisition supplies to provide you with precise and reliable data.
What's Faster?
We have been designing and making gas and powder guns since 1988 and spend 10% of our turnover in R&D. So when we decided to create our own laboratory, we designed flexible and state-of-the-art gas guns, nothing less.
What's Stronger?
Stronger is how will be your products after few days spent on our laboratory.Certification tests are always subject to tight schedules.
“We created our Shock Physics laboratory to adress a real need from aerospace and defense companies. By assessing materials reaction to shocks, we participate to the elaboration of 21st century materials”
