Test laboratory for balancing technology

The Test Laboratory for Balancing Technology is the technology leader for the metrological qualification of balancing and spin-testing systems, as well as the corresponding working standards. Since 2009 the laboratory of Schenck RoTec GmbH has fully implemented the more demanding requirements for testing and calibration laboratories. We hold the accreditation in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 - for all relevant measured quantities in balancing technology and also for the traceability of the measurand unbalance itself, which is unique in the world.

It is therefore the most reliable body at which users and service providers can have their measurement and testing devices validated - confidentially, independently and with effective protection of information received from customers.
