Rollix test benches

We developed ourselves test benches to validate our products for demanding sectors such as wind energy, machine tool, forestry, packaging and many others. These test benches, recognised by our customers, are essential for guaranteeing the optimum strength of our slewing rings:
– Test rig dedicated for slewing rings static capacity and lifetime
– Rolling elements test rig
– Lubricants test rigs
– Specific test rig 1 :1 for wind turbine
– Other test rig facilities (noise, sealing, torque, stiffness, greasing systems, new bearing technologies…)
