High-speed recordings in research and development


Typical user applications

High-speed cameras are used for a wide range of applications in research and development.

In product testing, they are used for the quality control of products. With their high frame rate, they enable products to be analysed precisely – from small components to complex machines.

In materials testing, high-speed cameras are used to test materials under extreme conditions. They make it possible to analyse materials in terms of their reactions to heat, pressure and other environmental factors, leading to revolutionary developments in materials science.

High-speed cameras are used to analyse combustion processes in order to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the dynamics of these processes. This contributes to the development of more efficient and environmentally friendly combustion technologies.

In flow visualisation and particle image velocimetry (PIV), high-speed cameras help engineers to optimise the aerodynamics of designs and understand complex fluid movements.

In biomechanics, high-speed cameras make it possible to analyse movements in detail. This includes analysing human movements as well as researching the biomechanics of animals to better understand injuries and develop innovative therapies.

High-speed cameras are also used to analyse vibrations in order to investigate vibrations in structures such as buildings, bridges or vehicles.

The precise tracking of the propagation of cracks in materials using high-speed cameras is of crucial importance in materials research.

In fluid dynamics, they enable real-time tracking of the movements of liquids and gases, whether in pipelines, tanks or flow channels.

They are also used to analyse the distribution of sprays, whether in industrial processes or in medicine. This allows them to precisely analyse the distribution of droplets and is used in various industries.
