Endurance testing

No matter how good a product rates in our tests, if it breaks down after only a short period of time you can expect to have complaints and dissatisfied customers on your hands. This is why we carry out endurance testing in our highly flexible endurance laboratory to test the durability of your product.

What does endurance testing look like?

Highly specialised individual solutions & automated motion sequences

We develop highly specialised individual solutions to enable automated endurance testing. To help us out with this, we use pneumatically-supported programmable logic controllers. Motorised lifting and guiding components mounted on system profiles and linear platforms perform accurate and consistent motion sequences. We build the test rigs designed in this way in our workshop ourselves in order to maintain our high standards and enable us to respond flexibly to client requirements.

Our endurance tests are designed to simulate use which is as close as possible to real life. This makes it possible for us to objectively assess your product’s durability and wear and tear.

why is endurance testing worthwhile?

product service life tested objectively

We are not the only ones – consumer organisations and consumers themselves also attach great importance to the durability of products. It is a metric for determining how sustainable a product is. This is why it is important to test the durability of your products. Only by doing this can you ensure that your products satisfy the needs of your target group and are sustainable, will bolster your market reputation and keep costs to the minimum.
