Central Laboratory

Testing and analysis laboratory

Testing and reliability

The testing and qualification of components are central to our development and system philosophies. That’s why Hirschmann products are put through their paces right from the start. The central testing laboratory is the guarantor for thoroughly tested components, from the design and construction phase through to series production.

With vibration testing, metallography, microscopy, leak-tightness, infrared thermal analysis and environmental impact analysis, we can be certain that only well-engineered and defect-free products leave our plant. Laboratory tests ensure full functionality over the entire life cycle.


Analysis of returned parts and defective part findings

In the rare case of a complaint or a defective part, the necessary steps are immediately taken to obtain a clear statement about the functions of the defective part(s) concerned. A precisely defined analytical process is carried out, in which optical analyses (microscopy, SEM analyses), mechanical analyses (leak tests) and also electronic tests (test for interruption and short circuit) are carried out. Our state-of-the-art laboratory is also equipped with a digital X-ray system and an EDX SEM module. The results uncover the exact damage patterns and are thus a central component in finding the causes of faults.

Measuring Laboratory

The measuring laboratory is a fixed point in our injection moulds approval process. We also perform all of the testing laboratory’s dimensional testing within it. A CT system and several optical-tactile 3D measuring machines are available to facilitate precise measurements. In addition, cavity analyses are carried out on our injection moulded parts, and the orientation of the glass fibres in our glass fibre-reinforced plastic parts is determined.
