Our test halls and test sites

Tests are carried out at our locations in Ottobrunn, Dresden and Erding in test halls encompassing an area of more than 18,000 m2, including a modern infrastructure and central supply of hydraulic fluid, compressed air and cooling water.

The test halls also provide equipment for simulating environment-related properties, e.g. temperature, climate, dust and corrosion, as well as for conducting fatigue strength tests. Material tests as well as failure and damage analyses are handled by the materials testing laboratory.
