Quality thoroughly tested: The KTR test field

At KTR, it is particularly important to us to always provide our customers with the best quality. In order to be able to guarantee this reliably, we rely on an in-house test field. Learn more about the special features of our research and development centre.

Quality control from prototype to series production readiness

At our headquarters in Rheine, we have devoted a great deal of attention to the topic of research and development on 550m² of test space. Here we have the possibility to operate 16 high-performance test benches, most of them with servo-hydraulic, but also electric motor drive.

With these test benches, we accompany the KTR product development from prototype to series production. The eight test technicians and engineers work hand in hand with the individual product managers and groups, the think tank, quality assurance or quality management, purchasing and with material and parts suppliers. It is very important to us that the team in the test field is involved right from the start of new developments or product improvements, for example through material substitution, in order to advise with its experience from product testing and to describe and prepare the upcoming tests.

KTR test field: 20 test benches for torques from 0.1 Nm to 500 kNm

More than 130 tests of various kinds are carried out each year, for example endurance tests or the determination of temperature values or other characteristic values.

Due to the wide variety of products and product sizes or performance capacities for drive technology, the rotating and non-rotating test benches are scaled in their performance. We can currently cover a torque spectrum from 0.1 Nm to 500 kNm.
