Applus+ Laboratories is the leading European company for structural testing. Combining the capabilities of our laboratories in Germany and Spain, we support manufacturers in the development and validation of their products. Our testing capabilities cover everything from materials to full-scale tests, to whole aircrafts or railcar bodies. Our expertise encompasses knowledge about advanced materials, such as composite, polymeric, and metallic types.
Our engineers help optimize products both in development and in service, using numerical simulation and strength evaluations.
Applus+ Laboratories is an approved strategic provider of structural mechanical testing for major aerospace manufacturers. We test all kinds of aircrafts, rotorcrafts, and spacecrafts structures and components.
Our structural lab's partnerships with wind turbine manufacturers allow us to test the mechanical loads and environmental influences on materials, components, and structures.
We perform bespoke test plans to help you optimise your components and set the right testing methods required for certification. We have extensive facilities for performing cyclic and quasi-static rotor blade tests under IEC 61400-23.
Applus+ Laboratories provides stability, reliability, and development testing for automobile components and structures:
We are an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory enabled to test:
We also perform tests for OEM-specific standards and can carry out design and test plans with your own specific load requirements. We work to verify strength, stability, and durability on full-scale structures and test a large range of substructures and smaller components too (e.g. axle boxes according to EN 12082).
Applus+ Laboratories has been partnering with the construction industry for the past 100 years. Throughout this trajectory, we have amassed the equipment, accredited laboratories and technical specialists necessary to undertake the mechanical validation of enclosures, construction materials, building systems, structural bearings and waste channels, and grates. In addition, our laboratories have been audited by EOTA-approved bodies, allowing the structural testing of reactive bridge components.
