This is what real testing expertise looks like: The picture shows our first accreditation certificate from 1992. Back then, the document was a mere seven pages long. 30 years later, in 2022, we were once again accredited according to ISO/IEC 17025 – by now, the document comprises 90 pages full of testing competence! The accreditation is now valid until 2027. Find all information on the IMA Dresden accreditations here: https://www.ima-dresden.de/en/company/quality-awards/. We are looking forward to working with you! [...]

In case of a fire, the fire department is there in an instant to help. When using extinguishing water from the drinking water network, many aspects have to be considered. Yesterday, considerable manufacturers of fire engines came to Applus+ IMA Dresden GmbH to attend the respective work group of the VDMA focusing on drinking water protection in fire engines according to DIN 14502-2. After the meeting, the participants learned more about pipes and pipe system testing, automotive testing, environment simulation und electrical strength assessment. Hopefully none of us will find themselves in a situation, when they have to call the fire department. But it is very reassuring to know, how conscientiously the vehicles are designed, built and continuously [...]

Eight students headed for Dresden Airport today. But not to fly off on holiday, but to take a look behind the scenes. Together with a teacher, the 13th grade students from the mechanical engineering advanced course at the Berufliches Schulzentrum Meißen-Radebeul deepened their knowledge in the area of "Innovative materials and selected materials testing methods". The testing experts provided insights into the testing methods used at Applus+ IMA Dresden, the materials to be tested and compared plastic, metal and fibre-reinforced plastic. We were very pleased with the interest and hope to see some of the talent again in a few years. [...]

After only nine short months we were able to send it on its way to China: The servohydraulic strength testing module – to be used mostly for dynamic fatigue tests on implants – is the next milestone on our way to establish a new testing lab in Shanghai.  Congratulations to the whole team for this exceptional performance! The testing machine unit consists of 6 pieces of 1-axis strength testing machines with a common control and regulation unit. Each testing machine can be controlled independently in two control modes (force and displacement). The application spectrum is mainly in dynamic fatigue tests on implants. In addition the user software has also been further refined: In cooperation with the Applus+ development team and the programmer [...]
