Testing Department

A key competence: all our test benches are manufactured in-house, which gives us an incomparable level of responsiveness and quality. Our teams have a complete know-how from the understanding of the initial specifications through 3D design, assembly, simulation, testing and analysis to commissioning at the customer’s site. It is also the test team that leads the manufacture of test benches for our customers, ensuring a unique understanding of the end need.

Our engineers and technicians have years of experience in the industry. At Exoès, they have created more than 20 test benches for industrial clients, universities or for their own needs.

Design office

Our engineers, who come from manufacturers and automotive suppliers, have one main objective: to optimise the cost/benefit ratio and to produce prototypes that are representative of our customers’ future series products.

Coming from companies such as Faurecia, Eberspächer or Danfoss, the engineers in the design office are specialists in batteries, mechanical design, thermodynamics and heat transfer in pumps or compressors.
