Thermamax upgrades and expands its Research & Development Test Laboratories at the Mannheim HQ.

In February 2015 Thermamax completed the installation of new R & D facilities.

Up to then all the relevant functions within R & D - Office, Hot-Gas Test Stand, Test and Investigations Laboratory - were situated in different locations in-house.

Representing an investment of around €250,000.-, the expansion allows all R & D facilities to be brought together in one, central location. At the same time, the usable space in the newly-designed area was virtually doubled.

The new area comprises four units: an Office, a larger Test and Investigations Laboratory, a re-equipped Hot-Gas Test Stand with adaptive Shaker Test capability and a newly created Technical Center. The Center was designed so that all existing, and future test equipment could be positioned in one place, and even complete vehicles tested or investigated. The aim of the expansion measures was also to centralize all R & D facilities within the Thermamax Mannheim. This has resulted in an increased efficiency in all R & D-related procedures, together with new possibilities for investigations and a wider Thermamax R & D capability.

For our customers this means an increased flexibility, speed and efficiency in introducing new products and processes, as well as in the execution of new projects.
