IMA Dresden

Development and Testing Centre for Rail Vehicles

The Number One Address for Component and Materials Testing

As an independent and reliable development and testing centre for rail vehicles, IMA Dresden support manufacturers and suppliers in the development process and assist transport companies with damage analysis and product optimisation. As such, we offer solutions that provide developers and engineers with reliable support in ensuring product and operational safety and quality assurance.

We bring together engineers and technicians from several fields of expertise – measurement and control engineering, computing, construction, test design and assessment. We aim to provide testing and engineering solutions that help customers to test forward-looking products thoroughly and validate them quickly, while complying with strict legal requirements.

Test and Development Center for the Railway Industry

IMA Dresden is an internationally recognised and accredited partner of the railway industry and supports the development departments of manufacturers and suppliers throughout the entire development of a product.

This means that we test and validate bogies, railcar bodies and lots of rail vehicle components in our testing halls, including electrical components. If required, we also uncover structural damage using non-destructive testing techniques, and analyse damage and material properties.

In addition, we conduct measurement runs, assess measured data and use these to define test programmes all over the world. We calculate and create virtual simulations of loads, assess the strength of products and areas of stress, and carry out strength and lifespan assessments. We also provide support for product development, taking strength related, technological and structural boundary conditions into consideration.

You can rely on us: our laboratories are certified according to DIN EN 9100, accredited according to ISO 17025. This therefore ensures that we can always provide tailor-made solutions for a wide range of structures and test requirements.

IMA Dresden – and it works:

  • Material testing
  • Structure and component testing
  • Non-destructive testing
  • Electrical testing
  • Materialography and damage analysis
  • Simulation and strength verification
  • Software systems for test and laboratory data
