Aeronautical Testing Devices



CAD Cut manufactures a full spectrum of aeronautical testing dots. Used in wind tunnels to force airflow at specific places along a scale test model to transition from laminar to turbulent flow, these “trip dots” allow researchers to more easily visualize the aerodynamic forces acting on an airfoil or aerostructure.

A Better Testing Tool
CAD Cut’s trip dots are precision cut to customer specifications, and our cutting technologies allows us to offer a wide range of circumferences and thicknesses to match wind tunnel testing environments and model scales. Easier to apply and remove than traditional silicon carbide deposition airflow disruption bumps, our trip dots feature uniform shape and consistent relative positioning that enhances the repeatability of boundary layer testing and the quality of the generated results.

Need to get the best possible data out of your limited wind tunnel time? CAD Cut’s trip dots can be your key to efficient, repeatable aeronautical testing. Contact us at +1 802.223.4055 or through our website to find out more.
