Testing laboratory for fastening technology

Bossard Quality and Test Laboratories

Proven expertise around the globe

The wide range of tests include:

  • Tensile and proof load testing
  • Drive and torsional strength testing
  • Hardness measurement
  • Measurement of coating thickness
  • Environment simulation test (corrosion test)
  • Chemical analysis
  • Pull-out tests on assembled fastening elements  
  • Vibration test to assess securing elements
  • Dynamic measurements of thread forming torque, stripping torque and breaking torque
  • Determination of the optimum tightening torque
  • Measurement of the resulting preload
  • Relaxation measurements on fastened joints
  • Friction coefficient tests

 

The benefit of these tests are clear:

  • The latest fastening technology
  • Shorter development times
  • Reliable and well-documented basis for decision-making
  • Competitive products  

 

Bossard's ten accredited test laboratories in Europe, America and Asia, along with their cutting-edge measuring and testing equipment, ensure reliable quality assurance and flawless production quality.
