Test facility
Simulation and calculation require validation – component testing provides safety

Our test facility is the heart of our experimental research.
We support our industry partners in product validation.


Test setups
Wide range of options for component testing

  • Overload tests
  • Long-term tests
  • Tailored test setups possible

Tension test benches

  • Stationary testing of elements and systems of drive technology, such as flanges, couplings, brakes
  • Transient testing of elements and systems of drive technology, such as flanges, couplings, brakes
  • Torque control adjustable

Clutch test bench

  • Recording of static and dynamic characteristic curves on torsionally flexible couplings
  • Measurement of coupling parameters
  • Excitation frequency and amplitude continuously variable during operation

Engine test benches
