Qualification of rail vehicles and components
Analysing. Testing. Qualifying.
IABG has been active in the field of securing technology solutions for around 60 years. As a manufacturer-independent service provider in the development process, we provide support in the areas of approval, operational monitoring, and failure analysis
Development partner of the rail industry
We see our role as a development partner of the rail industry. Our focus here is on the testing of components, the construction and operation of customer-specific test benches as well as development and analysis services. For component and structural tests we provide test infrastructure at our locations. This enables us to carry out tests on fatigue strength, environmental simulation such as temperature, climate, dust, corrosion, and stone impact. Our material laboratory completes our range of services with any necessary damage investigations. Results from the operation are transferred with us into higher availability and optimum utilization of the rolling stock. The respective manufacturer and railway standards are applied in our test centres.
In agreement with EISENBAHN-CERT, IABG is authorised to carry out tests in accordance with Directive 2008 / 57 / EC and its technical specifications for Interoperability and to call itself an approved subcontractor of EISENBAHN-CERT.
At the Dresden location we operate test benches for testing bogie frames and car bodies, at the Ottobrunn location we carry out failure analysis with the most modern testing equipment. We look forward to working with you to ensure your technology solutions.
