As a strategic partner of the international aviation industry, IABG performs strength, fatigue and functional tests for the entire aircraft as well as for individual assemblies and structural components. During our test series, the test items must withstand several thousands of flights before they are finally released for regular flight operations. This is the case for passenger jets as well as for general aviation and military aircraft.
Our services have been called upon for all Airbus programmes, from the very first Airbus project to the present day. We also carried out a comprehensive series of tests for the Airbus A380 wide-body aircraft - to date the largest full-scale fatigue test on an airframe in the history of our company. At present, we have been commissioned to plan and execute structural fatigue tests for wing variants and the whole airframe of the Airbus A350 XWB. At the IABG test centre in Dresden, we are currently conducting fatigue tests for the Airbus A400M military transport aircraft. For the Bombardier C-Series fatigue testing will start in 2014 in our Dresden test facilities.
Such trust is warranted by highest quality standards, unique know-how, innovative test technology, speed, flexibility and commitment to schedules. These are the strengths that have made us Europe's leading provider of aerospace testing and quality assurance services.
While our main focus is on structural testing, we offer a wide variety of testing services for aeronautics customers.
Our aeronautics service portfolio includes:
-Experimental testing (structural tests, functional tests, product qualification, flight tests)
-Development of functional and system test benches
-Structural monitoring, inspection and analysis
-Functional Safety and Operational Safety
-Provision of the test infrastructure
Tests are carried out at our locations in Ottobrunn, Dresden and Erding.
