Comprehensive shock absorber, strut and damper testing from leading provider

As the world’s leading testing, verification, inspection and certification company, we offer you unsurpassed experience and expertise in shock absorber, strut and damper testing.

We can test your shock absorber, strut or damper to high frequencies using closed loop servo-hydraulics, while vibration can be sine, random or real time. We also have a centralized chiller system that works with each test stand to control the temperature of the coolant, minimizing the thermal cycle time, preventing premature failure due to overheating.
