Railway components

For quality across the board

With its individual test systems, Berghof Testing covers almost all areas of modern mobility – from automotive testing in the interior and exterior sector to electromobility. In the railway industry too, the name Berghof enjoys an excellent reputation as a specialist for testing systems: Berghof Process Management at the Mühlhausen site has developed into one of the leading suppliers of railway testing technology and counts renowned companies such as Deutsche Bahn and various streetcar plants among its customers.

Rail Test System RTS

To ensure that no train falls by the wayside, rail transport companies subject all components of their rail vehicles to functional tests and running tests before installation. A high reliability level of materials is indispensable in passenger transport in particular. The Rail Test System RTS from Berghof Process Management covers all customer-specific requirements individually. The modular design of the test bench enables the functional testing of electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic and mechanical components from all types of rail vehicles. Our many years of expertise, the highest quality standards and modular technologies based on industrial standards guarantee you efficient results. From individual test benches to large test benches – with us you get everything from a single source: machine foundations, test cabins, mechanics, energy electronics, measurement technology, hardware and software as well as service and maintenance.
