Testing and Validation


All phases in the life cycle of a machine are relevant for assessing where optimization is needed. We have our own test rigs on site and also develop them ourselves so that we can carry out comprehensive risk assessments and condition monitoring.

Our metallography laboratory offers broad capabilities for cutting force measurement, experimental modal analysis and materials testing. We perform climatic testing in a climate chamber.


Tissue simulations and cutting force measurements are also part of our expertise.
