The extensive expertise of our employees, our premium facilities and our wide range of services offered are what makes our test laboratory special. Here, the focus of our specialists lies firmly on connection technology. Our portfolio includes application-oriented testing of friction coefficient and torsion tests, hardness testing methods, tensile tests and impacts tests, materials and surfaces tests and geometry measurement. Specimens are prepared in the laboratory using two production lines for metallography and hardness testing. In total, the laboratory area of the three-storey building covers 800 square meters.
Specialists in connection technology
As innovative pioneers, we respond to requests from all over the world and in doing so, do not shy away from exploring new approaches. We train materials testers year after year, thus securing the technical competence of our team. Our laboratory highlights include the world's largest friction coefficient testing machine for connection technology, which can test screws up to size M80. A salt spray chamber is used for corrosion testing and complex shape and positional tolerances are measured using 3D multi-sensor technology in a specially air-conditioned room. Within Würth Industrie Service, we inspect connection elements for business areas such as goods receipt, initial sample testing, application consulting and complaints management.
Accredited competency and official testing centre
We always keep the requirements of our customers firmly in our sights. Part of our philosophy, therefore, is to continuously improve our processes and quality at every working stage. Our recognition as an accredited test centre for more than 50 standardised methods and our accreditation in line with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 serve as proof of our competency as well as the rigorously implemented quality management in our laboratory.
Technology and expertise perfectly combined
