Up till now it has only been possible to test the resistance of products to snow in the winter. This situation creates high levels of dependency on external factors like location, climate and season and is almost always associated with high costs and short windows of time in which testing can take place. Thanks to TechnoAlpin indoor snow systems, real winter conditions can now be simulated in testing facilities. This means that components can be tested when they are ready, regardless of the place or time of year. It is also possible to imitate various weather conditions so that the results of different test runs can be compared.
The Deutsche Bahn (German Railway) has defined TechnoAlpin engineering as the best available technology for material tests on its brake linings. The systems are also in use at Audi in Ingolstadt (GER) and at Volkswagen in Wolfsburg (GER).
Aside from tests in the transportation sector, these new possibilities are of benefit to the outdoor industry. Material and equipment can be tested in a wide and diverse range of conditions and presented to the public in a spectacular fashion. This is just another job for which the TechnoAlpin Snow Rooms are suited.
