No matter whether it's 16 millimetre or 73 metres: We test everything.


The size of the objects plays only a subordinate role in IMA Dresden’s testing: the smallest parts we have tested so far were bone screws with a length of 16 millimeters – our experts used them to determine the yield stress up to the fracture angle. In contrast, IMA Dresden’s most massive testing task to date was the full-scale test on the Airbus A380-800 – with a length of 73 metres, a take-off weight of 560 tonnes and space for 509 passengers, it is currently the largest and heaviest passenger aircraft in the world.
