Individual and customized testing solutions
Do you need a statement on the load capacity of your component? We offer you customized and individual testing solutions for your component!
Due to our interdisciplinary setup, we can offer you a holistic range of services on this subject:
- Design and manufacture of special fixtures
- Digitization of components for further CAD processing
- Accomplishment of the requested tests
- Documentation of the tests
Furthermore, innovative optical measuring methods such as ATOS and Aramis sensors (GOM) are available for the detection of e.g. dimensional changes due to external influences. This allows target/actual comparisons to be illustrated via color-coded deviation displays (here: assessment of warpage).
For a conductor rail support - system 3rd rail - made of SMC material (fiber-plastic composite) from the company Powerlines Products GmbH, the KUZ designed and manufactured an individual fixture to hold the conductor rail support. With the aid of this special design, a pull-off test of the conductor rail support could be successfully carried out with regard to its mechanical load capacity of up to 20 kN.

Rheology and thermal analysis
The description of the material properties of plastics is essential for the design of processing procedures and for quality assurance. Rheometric investigations can be used to characterize the flow and deformation behavior of thermoplastic polymers and to better understand their structure-viscosity behavior during processing. The test methods of thermal analysis open up the possibility of identifying relationships between processing conditions, microstructure and material properties of plastics. In this way, polymers can be identified and processing-related material damage can be detected. In this seminar, the theoretical fundamentals of rheology and thermal analysis are combined with practical demonstrations of the equipment in the laboratory and pilot plant. Concrete application examples from the practice of the accredited testing laboratory at the KUZ will be used to show what information can be obtained from the recorded measurement curves.

Plastic innovatively shaped
In addition to other major plastics processing methods, injection molding is one of the most frequently used primary molding processes. The range of molded parts produced fully automatically and cost-efficiently by injection molding extends from simple mass products to complex, technical components and assemblies. Within this spectrum, we can support you with the most diverse issues.
Does your component actually hold up?
hen designing a component, one starts with the stiffness and strength of the product. Therefore, mechanical properties are also an important part of plastics testing. Whether for the standard-compliant determination of characteristic values for component design, for the control of specifications and standards from automotive standards or for the comparative evaluation of different material batches, the full range of mechanical tests is often used here.
