Trilion Quality Systems develops precision 3D optical measurement and inspection testing devices. Our 3D Digital Image Correlation (3D DIC) and photogrammetry instruments measure material properties, structural response, and product quality in automotive, aerospace, biomechanics, microelectronics, civil structures and defense fields. Data produced with our systems are used for full-field measurement of 3D deformation and strain, to validate finite element models, illustrate material modes of failure or improve product quality.

Trilion engineers are passionate about solving problems and making advancements using 3D DIC due to our vast experience stemming from a wide array of industries such as material testing, academia, automotive, aerospace, oil & gas, telecommunications & die making. Together we have (over 150 years of combined experience) OR (we each have an average of over 10 years) in these and many other industries. We are happy to share our knowledge to support our customers with research and testing that ultimately leads to improving the industry by saving time, money and countless other resources.

We pride ourselves on maintaining personal working relationships with our customers and their teams while having access to a worldwide network of knowledge that comes with being a GOM Certified Partner.

  • Dr. Kaspar Willam - Department Head of Civil Engineering
    “We only know the fracture mode in ideal laboratory conditions where you control it. In the real world, it is a complex combination of modes, and you cannot know it.” He was impressed to discover that his ARAMIS system continually measures all three modes.

    “We have 65 computer modelers and no good experimental data validating those models. This [full-field dynamic deformation and strain measurement] technology is company critical.”

  • Dr. Paul Gradl - Testing Hot Fire Rocket Motors
    “The ARAMIS data, as full-field image data, is intuitively understood. Image data is an ideal format for humans to understand. We analyze the ARAMIS results, and there are no arguments about the data, like we had with strain gauges; it is intuitively obvious what is occurring to our structures.”
