Saltspray testing equipment at EMKA

In house accredited testing is vital to our custom and standard product development programs – it underpins quality throughout the creation cycle – so we are delighted that our newly relocated and expanded laboratory has recently been upgraded with new equipment.

This upgrade allows an even stronger focus on customer applications, i.e. to define product requirements in direct discussion with the customer and to test the product hand in hand with the EMKA Design Department.

Saltspray test chamber at EMKA

The aim is to offer a wider range of tests since nowadays the requirements for quality and reliability are constantly increasing. This is achieved by upgrading the laboratory equipment: A new, state-of-the-art salt spray testing facility was integrated into the new premises. A new test procedure from the field of environmental simulation, a vibration test facility, will also be added shortly. This procedure is used to test the resistance of products in the installed state and during transport to prevent shock and vibration stresses. Test parameters for railroad applications can also be examined. Last but not least, the test range of the durability test is also extended.

EMKA manufacturing capability

Our engineering team at EMKA pride themselves on their flexibility when catering for individual custom specifications – made possible by our uniquely high level of in-house production whereby we are in control of the entire production flow from the concept to the finished product.

It is important to us that our large standard component production also supports a major capability to meet customer hardware needs beyond the standard. This is possible because of the expertise gained in the casting of stainless steel, injection-moulding of zinc and high-performance plastics as well as in extruding of rubber and plastic profiles. Additional manufacturing technologies are punching, bending, lathe machining, milling and coating of modular product solutions.

During the entire manufacturing process, a high level of product quality and reliability is guaranteed by having our own tool and mould-making department as well as state-of-the-art design, development and testing processes.

EMKA multi point twist-clamp-closure

Users of twist-clamp closures know that as soon as an enclosure or cabinet door or HVAC access flap is needs closing at several points, then a number of simultaneous manual operations are often necessary to secure it properly. With our new adaptive EMKA turn-clamp-lock system this usually tedious process is a thing of the past. Our engineers have greatly simplified the closing procedure by means of an innovative multipoint locking system in modular format.
