Your specialist for environmental simulation testing

Environmental influences affect the reliability, quality and service life of technical products. Environmental simulation tests are indispensable for ensuring the trouble-free functioning of a product throughout its entire life cycle, regardless of environmental influences. The test results provide information about the resilience of a product and its components against environmental influences.

As an accredited testing laboratory, we perform environmental simulation tests – both to national and international standards and in accordance with individual customer requirements. By conducting tests during the early stages of development, we contribute to comprehensive quality assurance, minimizing risk and ensuring the reliability of your products.

RUAG - Your comprehensive partner for environmental simulation testing
