In the process of creating new complex systems, the need of realizing ad-hoc mock-ups usually arises, and for different motivations.
Very often a proof-of-concept mock-up is necessary for testing the basic functioning principle of innovative components, like a new sensor or a new actuator.
Other times, when a choice has to be done among alternative technical solutions, comparative experiments on tailored mock-ups are certainly helpful for the selection process.
Finally, there can be the need of building special mock-ups to be used as test-beds for performing special experiments on other systems or for characterizing the performance of new developed devices.
Graal Tech engineers are highly experienced in designing and developing customized mock-ups and test-beds, and normally their realization process is quite fast, as most of it can be conducted internally, by exploiting the available infrastructures and machining tools.
Once developed, mock-ups can be used also at the head office, by performing dry tests with laboratory instruments and wet tests in the indoor pool or the outdoor tank.
