Client Testimonial

Bringing a new product to the market can always be challenging. The dynamometer requirements were a challenge, and Eagle met all our expectations. The dyno design is robust, the software is streamlined, and the build quality is world-class. Thank you, Eagle.

EV Powertrain Company

ADVANCED TEST SYSTEMS

Eagle Technologies provides a turnkey solution for businesses seeking an all-in-one solution to automated production and testing. While many industries separate product manufacture from product testing, we do both. We believe that if we are going to build machines to manufacture your products, we should also be the ones testing the products to be sure the final output meets the design requirements.

Our testing systems go above and beyond standard implementation. Using the most advanced emerging technologies, including NVH, Dynamometers, simulation, augmented reality, prototype engineering, and 3D additive manufacturing, our autonomous systems can measure variables and correct in real time, leading to increased performance with reduced costs.
