Testing and Measuring

In our measurement laboratories, we are test each system individually according to your requirements.

Individual and series reproducible measurement results

The testing of your systems will be performed on heavy, vibration-isolated granites, which eliminates the influence of external vibrations and other mechanical disturbances. Measurements are performed with certified and standardized calibrated measuring equipment.



Measurement of your standard systems

You will receive detailed, written measurement reports for maximum application security. On request, we will provide you with the measured values as a diagram or file.

Our standard measurements include:

  • High-precision length values using high-resolution laser interferometers for positioning accuracy and repeatability
  • Minimal deviations of form and position tolerances in straightness and flatness via digital fine calipers in a measurement against a certified glass standard
  • Angular deviations of rotatory systems by means of mirror polygon and angle measuring system or interferometer

The Steinmeyer Mechatronik quality management system is certified according to  DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 as well as DIN EN ISO 50001:2018. Furthermore, we secure and improve the quality standard of our customers with regular customer audits.

Customized measurements

Customized to your application, environment and with individual measurement setup.

Lifetime tests

To determine maximum duty cycles, component wear or to create maintenance concepts.

Measurement protocols and reports

Documented parameters for each series product with protocol, optionally as diagram or file.

Customer-specific measurements and special measurements

The measurement setup can be specially adapted to your application in order to prove the application parameters in the finished system e.g. by means of:

  • Measurements in the motion profile and in the real environment of the applications etc.
  • Specific measurements on site in installation position of the system
  • Measurement with additional customer components or different alignment of loads or speed variations

Life cycle tests

Measuring the parameters in the motion profile of the application over its entire lifetime is our specialty.

  • Lifetime tests over several million cycles up to total failure of the system
    • Evaluation of the suitability and wear of the individual components and the drive concept
    • Creation of a maintenance concept or adaptation of the design towards maintenance-free 24/7 operation

    Measurement protocols and reports

    All systems leave us after being measured with standardized measuring equipment such as high-resolution interferometers. For quality assurance each system is traceable:

    • Test protocol for each serial number for 100% traceability of each system's parameters
    • Standard test results with travel, overrun, index position, positioning accuracy, repeatability (bidirectional), flatness, straightness, pitch, yaw as well as max. speed
    • Optional: measurement of additional parameters e.g. stiffness, acceleration, natural frequency, etc. or provision of measurement data as diagram or file
