  • Testing of Spring Characteristics of Rubber Elements

    Testing of Spring Characteristics of Rubber Elements

    To reduce noise emissions and vibrations in rail traffic, highly elastic intermediate layers and plates as well as special elastic track mats (USM) are used. The test setup for the determination of static and dynamic stiffness was compiled from the existing modular system of FORM+TEST Seidner&Co. GmbH and adapted to the application and customer requirements. The integration of a temperature chamber allows simulation conditions at - 40°C - +100°C.

  • Calibration of Force Sensors with Testing Machines of the EM Series

    Calibration of Force Sensors  with Testing Machines of the EM Series

    BROSA manufactures high-quality sensors for force measurement. To check these accuracies in the medium force range, the company repeatedly uses a test system from the development and production of Form + Test. This electromechanical universal testing machine of the EM series is used for continuous calibrations in the direction of tensile and compressive forces up to 400 kN (40 t) and achieves highly precise and repeatable accuracies (<0.25 %).

  • Testing Portal for Component Testing

    Testing Portal for Component Testing

    FORM+TEST Seidner&Co. GmbH offers a modular system for static and dynamic testing tasks. Truck trailers are fitted with chassis-related assemblies and components, all of which are subject to high quality standards. Driving stability, safety and maintenance-free operation are criteria to which the manufacturers' entire product range is exposed. Axle and suspension systems, as well as fifth wheel couplings for the individual vehicle types such as container transporters, tipper trucks and platforms are continuously checked on the test field in accordance with manufacturer-specific testing standards.

  • Pressure Testing of High-Strength Concrete and Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    Pressure Testing of High-Strength Concrete and Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    Ultra-high-strength concretes are increasingly being used in building and bridge construction. Such concretes are specially designed to meet the highest requirements in terms of strength and resistance to physical and chemical influences. FORM+TEST Seidner&Co. GmbH brings decades of experience and thousands of delivered compression testing machines for concrete testing to these developments.

  • Packaging Tests

    Packaging Tests

    There are numerous standards (EN / ASTM / DIN) which specify the testing of packaging to protect against transport damage. A renowned German automobile manufacturer approached us with a specification for an upsetting press. Its aim is to inspect the packaging used for transport to the individual plants and to optimise it.
