From standard tests to complex research projects. TÜV AUSTRIA TVFA – Austria’s number one in component and material testing delivers efficient solutions for new opportunities and more entrepreneurial success. As part of the TÜV AUSTRIA Group, the company offers a wide range of solutions together with the testing laboratories at the Technology & Innovation Center in Vienna.
Efficiency in the mobility of people and goods is one of the most urgent issues for our economy, despite digitalisation, the consequences of pandemics, war and political upheaval. In addition, there are fundamental changes in the way we live and consume. All of this requires new solutions and new technologies for transport systems on the road, rail or in the air. At the same time, it provides an attractive environment for market players inside and outside Europe.
One of the most profound changes concerns the shift in propulsion technology in transportation, followed by the expansion of public transportation and the multimodal use of everything from rental bikes to autonomous vehicles. Drones represent a unique and unfamiliar form of transportation for the population. Currently, the developments are still focused on rescue organizations and small transports, but work is being done intensively on their use in classic mobility. The pressure on industry to develop new solutions quickly and offer tailor-made solutions for transport network operators is enormous.
To be able to sustainably compete in the market, products must meet the highest demands – in terms of safety, availability, maintainability, compliance and performance. Technologies that are not yet part of the standard program, such as additive manufacturing, monitoring systems or AI, bring additional challenges for all market participants.
Electrical engineering, material testing, environmental simulation
TÜV AUSTRIA offers tailor-made testing concepts for these challenges in the areas of mechanics, electrical safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), environmental simulation and IT/OT security. At the TÜV AUSTRIA Technology & Innovation Centre in Vienna, our experts develop individual solutions for a wide range of testing tasks in the mobility industry. The connected service offering of the TÜV AUSTRIA Group optimizes project effort in terms of time and logistics, reduces complexity by providing a single point of contact and reduces overall costs. This enables us to help our customers successfully bring new products to market quickly.
TÜV AUSTRIA TVFA is a leading provider of mechanical component and material testing. Our accredited testing labs can perform both static and dynamic testing on components ranging from small ones to large and complex structures. We design the appropriate test program according to the standard or the specifications of our customers.
In classical materials testing, TÜV AUSTRIA offers the whole range up to fracture mechanics examinations and the currently most powerful industrial computer tomograph in Austria. In the field of EMC, we support you with a broad portfolio of tests in one of the largest EMC test halls in central Europe. The possibilities include the network simulation of all on-board networks as well as e-mobility requirements from AC and DC up to 1 MW as well as battery simulation of all common standards.
In the near future, drive-in climate halls for simulating environmental conditions down to -70°C, controlled humidity, IP protection tests and acoustic measurements will be put into operation.
The combination of research expertise and many years of practical experience has one goal: to open up new possibilities for customers and partners with a broad service portfolio. This not only increases innovative strength, but also boosts competitiveness and is an important contribution to quality assurance.
TÜV AUSTRIA supports Burkina Faso school project
Bethel High School Opening in Sight
Three years after the start of construction, the Nanoro project is nearing completion. The buildings have been erected, the photovoltaic system has been installed, and in October Bethel High School will open its doors to the first 300 students. TÜV AUSTRIA has been supporting the project since 2019.
