One and a half years after moving into the new building the test engineers of Zedler-Institut took into operation the third lab in the energy-efficient building at the beginning of the year. The testing systems of the category Safety, for ex. the new pedal and bell testing systems as well as the roller for wheels, are located in the new lab.
The high internal standards of the Zedler-Institut, such as constant climatic conditions, high load carrying capacity and vibration reduction of the floor as well as bright radiant LED illumination for crack detection, have now been realised for the rotating tests as well.
As usual at the Zedler-Institut, these testing systems are full in-house developments and it goes without saying that their range of functions covers the relevant standards. They also offer the possibility to perform tests according to the intended purpose of use that may go far beyond the tests specified in the standards. Experience has shown that often enough the natures of loss which are known from thousands of analysed failures on the road or in the terrain can only be reproduced with supplementary test procedures.
