Precision Ball Launching for Aerodynamic Testing

For twenty years the ABTS has been the industry standard. It is used at every major ball manufacturer as well as the USGA. The system allows the engineer to design and test the flight of the golf ball without live hitting.

The ABTS simulates the spin of any club without marking the ball. The system also has the ability to tilt in the vertical plane. The system can even simulate a hook and slice, tilting in the z plane.
