At Ignitec, we’re passionate about transforming intricate ideas into accessible, practical solutions. We’ve been designing and building bespoke test rigs for over a decade, catering primarily to the life sciences and energy sectors, but our expertise extends across multiple domains.

The Challenge

We understand the constraints of limited resources, rigid budgets, and pressing deadlines. Building an in-house custom test rig, while managing these challenges, can be a daunting task. This is exactly where Ignitec steps in.

Our Solution

Over the years, we’ve constructed hundreds of test rigs tailored to various tests – from endurance and performance testing, safety validation to innovative concept verification. Our approach is flexible and customised, recognising that each testing scenario is unique. We ensure that each test rig is designed and built to cater specifically to your project, enabling you to validate the performance and safety of your products or components effectively.

Expert Team

Our skilled team brings together their expertise in mechanical and electrical engineering, control systems, and software development to create your bespoke test rig. We guarantee seamless integration of our hardware with your existing systems. Our custom software provides comprehensive control and data logging capabilities, offering a well-rounded solution.

Specialised Skills

Our proficiency isn’t limited to hardware. Our team is adept at handling intricate scenarios involving gases and liquids, even in complex microfluidic environments. Our expertise covers comprehensive heating and cooling systems, and we’re capable of generating aerosols and vapours. With specific experience in designing systems for targeted lung drug delivery, our skills cater to a wide range of needs.

Aftercare Service

Our commitment doesn’t end with the delivery of your custom test rig. We extend our support beyond this point, with our engineers always available to assist. Along with providing detailed documentation, we offer full training to ensure you’re confident in operating the rig, ensuring a smooth transition and continuous support.
