Our services

  • Customer support and advice in drafting specifications / design and in implementing test benches
  • Products / standard test benches for axle springs, stabiliser bars, steering systems and wheels
  • Customer-specific / tailor-made special test benches
  • Realisation of large test benches as general contractor.

We offer customers the development, planning, manufacture and commissioning of test benches from a single source: turnkey solutions – with or without customer-specific adaptation – or as new developments according to customer requirements and at the leading edge of technology.

Our portfolio covers the engineering, manufacture and naturally also the servicing and expanding of our test benches. Our test facilities embody our many years of broad experience in dealing with fatigue strength and in the development and fine-tuning of test procedures.


Our portfolio includes the following test benches as standard products:

Our seal stands for the quality of our accredited and certified test house.

Corrosion Spring Testing Machine (CSTM)

The Development and Quality Monitoring of resilient, highly stressed automotive components such as springs and stabilizer bars, requires testing that represents actual vehicle conditions as accurately as possible. There are some essential test areas when determining the quality of spring steel, for example, fatigue strength and setting behavior under realistic load and environmental conditions.

Based on these requirements, IABG offers a spring test machine capable of performing fatigue tests in both a salt water corrosion environment and a normal laboratory atmosphere. Thus allowing the determination of spring fatigue strength while reducing both time and cost.

Dry Spring Testing Machine (DSTM)

The Development and Quality Monitoring of resilient, highly stressed automotive components such as springs requires testing that represents actual vehicle conditions as accurately as possible. There are some essential test areas when determining the quality of spring steel, for example, fatigue strength and setting behavior under realistic load and environmental conditions.

Based on these requirements, IABG offers a spring testing machine capable of performing fatigue tests in normal laboratory atmosphere. Thus allowing the determination of spring fatigue strength while reducing both time and cost.

Valve Spring Testing Machine (VSTM)

Despite the very low cost per part of valve springs compared to the total engine component cost, the valve spring is still a safety-critical component. It is vital that valve spring failure be prevented entirely, for if a failure should occur it could result in total engine failure. The high risk involved with valve spring failure to the overall engine means the measures taken to ensure spring quality are of great significance.


The IABG Valve Spring Testing Machine allows the efficient determination of the fatigue strength of valve springs under the influence of temperature, saving both time and money. The test machine operates using resonance principles, and is able to simultaneously test a large number of valve springs up to their maximum possible stress achieving a statistically reliable result with minimal effort.

Large Spring Testing Machine (LSTM)

The Development and Quality Monitoring of resilient, highly stressed automotive components such as springs, requires testing that represents actual vehicle conditions as accurately as possible. There are some essential test areas when determining the quality of spring steel, for example, fatigue strength and settling behavior under realistic load and environmental conditions.

Based on these requirements, IABG offers a spring test machine capable of performing fatigue tests on large resilient components under normal laboratory atmosphere. Thus allowing the determination of the fatigue strength of such components as coil and leaf springs, while reducing both time and cost.
