EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MTS Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: MTSC), a leading global supplier of high-performance test systems and position sensors, today announced that it has finalized an agreement with Shanghai Jiaotong University (SJTU) to establish an Aerospace Structural Strength Testing Demo Site at SJTU in Shanghai. Under this collaboration, SJTU's School of Aeronautics and Astronautics will use MTS' advanced structural testing technologies for aerospace structural strength testing and various other R&D activities. SJTU is a public research university renowned as one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in China.


Dr. Wang Hai, the Associate Dean and the Professor of the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics at SJTU, expressed his confidence in the collaboration: "We firmly believe that the establishment of this demonstration center will take Shanghai Jiaotong University's research capabilities to new heights. It will also allow more industry experts, academics, and colleagues access to MTS' high-quality products."

The current facility at SJTU's School of Aeronautics features numerous MTS technologies including multiple Landmark testing systems, an 896 channel FlexDAC Data Acquisition System, a FlexTest 200 digital controller, and 1000kN servohydraulic load frame, as well as a 1000kN MTS Criterion Static Hydraulic Test System. Through the application of these systems, the University plans to continue to uphold its reputation as a research leader in the Chinese aerospace industry.

The advanced lab will also serve as a site for the education, training, and exhibition of MTS testing technologies to MTS employees, customers, university staff and students. MTS and SJTU intend to jointly develop annual training curriculum in the use of MTS equipment. Furthermore, the Demo Site will enable important international and domestic initiatives, including technical projects, joint papers, research, and development, to improve testing technology and methods, as well as providing suggestions for MTS systems' enhancements.
