Wheelset axle testing laboratory
Typical Applications

Wheelset shafts

A durable wheelset shaft is a crucial guarantee of safety for freight, short and long-distance commuter, and overnight trains.

For over 20 years we have been testing wheelset shafts, to prevent train accidents and to ensure railways operate safely.

Our capabilities


Load ranges up to 350,000 Nm

Resonance-driven rotating bending tests are highly energy-efficient and can detect cracks and a loss of component stiffness while testing is ongoing.

Do your components need to be tested?

We have testing solutions for all manner of components, assemblies, and materials to determine their fatigue strength, maximum load capacity, lifetime, and reliability. Contact us below with a summary of your testing needs and we will reach out to you as soon as possible.
