It’s not long ago that the bicycle and pedelec models to be launched in 2017 were presented to the public at Eurobike Show. Behind the scenes, however, manufacturers are already working at full speed on developing the models of the next generation. During the development of new products often the most acute problem is a lack of time. It is therefore not unusual that reliable testing prior to series production is dropped. This can turn out to be fatal resulting in liability claims and even product recalls. This year bicycle manufacturers already had to recall more than 15 products, the number of recalls in 2015 comprised 39 products all in all.
The good news for bicycle manufacturers under time pressure: Technically state-of-the-art and therefore reliable testing does not automatically mean that you have to wait many weeks for the results. In 2016, my team succeeded, apart from a few exceptions, in mounting your test units within 48 hours at the latest on the first testing system and starting the load tests. The test results are usually delivered within five working days at the latest.
To uphold this service in 2017 as well, we have invested once again in our testing systems and the infrastructure of our laboratory.
Take your chance and convince yourself on site: Visit our premises in Ludwigsburg and get an idea of our services and testing procedures on site.
We are looking forward to meeting you.
