Environmental laboratory
We subject your product to all types of environmental testing.

We test your engineering samples, prototypes, and series products according to national and international standards and regulations. Our testing laboratory is accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and subjects your specimens to climatic, dynamic mechanical, corrosive, electrical, and combined tests and extended time tests.

We perform environmental tests on materials, components, assemblies, prototypes, and series devices for all industries, supporting our clients in all sectors, such as the energy industry, railway technology, the automobile industry, the aerospace industry, the shipping industry, and the medical industry.

We simulate extreme climatic conditions by means of temperature, moisture, heat, temperature variation, and solar radiation loads. We perform corrosion tests with salt mist and corrosive gas tests and dynamic mechanical tests by means of vibration and impact tests.

When conventional testing reaches its limits, we develop testing procedures tailored to your requirements and provide comprehensive consulting.

Environmental testing and special experiments according to customer requirements

Our extensive collection of testing equipment and our expertise in developing testing methods allow us to provide you with individualized support that goes beyond the requirements of the relevant standards. We develop the necessary hardware and software applications for monitoring and assessing tests and construct them ourselves.

Examples of tailored testing

  • Corrosion testing of vehicle systems and components
  • Pressure threshold testing for sensors and pipe systems
  • Environmental testing for control cabinets, switchboards, transformers, and throttles
  • Vehicle batteries, electrical drives under current
  • Desert climate test for parking meters and ATMs
  • Monitoring of relevant physical measured values (such as temperature monitoring, current consumption, voltage drop)
  • Climatic loads with power supplies of up to 3 kVDC/80 kW
  • Isolation measurements
  • Dielectric strength testing
  • Thermography
  • Endurance testing
  • Complex component testing (special testing)
  • Compression and tensile testing
