Equipment and facilities


 

BAM has extensive experimental facilities at its disposal, together with measurement, testing and analytical instruments. A number of particular test facilities are not available in any comparable form in Germany, Europe or world wide from any other institution in the framework of external services. These “unique” test facilities, and the particular testing capabilities implied, constitute a major feature of distinction for our services. Listed here are our unique test facilities.
