AAE is a new Marposs leak testing distributor!

It is with great pleasure to announce that our team here at Air Automation Engineering (AAE) has officially signed on as a Marposs distributor.

Since 1958, Marposs has been the worldwide leader in precision equipment for measurement and inspection. With the 2016 purchase of Tecna, Marposs has expanded to include Leak and Flow test solutions for the production environment. Tecna was founded in the early 80s, in the “medical district” of Mirandola, Italy and designs and manufactures Leak and Flow testers for industrial and control processes to guarantee quality. Tecna leak and flow testers are used in both automated or manual applications.

MarpossTecna instruments are innovative devices used for leak and flow testing. Thanks to LCD touch interfaces—complete with color display and the real-time test viewing— Both programming and operating the devices are simple and intuitive.

As Air Automation Engineering continues to strive to be your first and last solutions supplier, we feel that a partnership with Marposs makes perfect sense. We saw that the technologies and expertise Marposs brought to the table fit perfectly with current Air Automation offerings.
