Pressure Test Stands For

Automotive testing puts full vehicles, components and systems through a series of tests, both virtual and real-world simulations are conducted to ensure safety, reliability and compliance with safety regulations. Automotive testing is required to access global automotive markets and manufacturers must show they have put their product through rigorous assessment. Testing covers a wide range of vehicle features, and Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau supports the industry with state-of-the-art pressure test rigs, autofrettage systems and function test benches.

Burst Test Rig

Large Components | Burst- and Pressure Cycle Test Rig

The test stand has two large chambers in which individual burst pressure and pressure cycle tests can be executed. Our state-of-the-art P+P flex pressure intensifier covers large components, such as accumulators, and generates pressure load changes of up to 800 bar with a frequency of up to 10 Hz.

Compressed Air Booster

Compressed Air Booster

Our compressed air booster units are utilized where the existing compressed air supply is no longer sufficient. Consequentially our booster units increase pressure from e.g. 3 bar to up to 50 bar to meet requirements for special tools, machines or systems.

Burst Test Rig

Hose Test Bench with Laser Measurement

When hoses are subjected to pressure, they often change from their original form and dimension. The test stand has an integrated automatic laser and length measurement system and can measure torsion easily. In addition, a quick connector system enables the hoses to be replaced rapidly.

Burst Test Rig

Pipe and Hose Test Bench

Hoses, pipes and pipe connections must reliably withstand operational pressures and predefined pressures during testing. To prove the component and material quality, they are exposed to pressure, sometimes to the point of failure or bursting.

Burst Test Rig

High-Pressure Burst Test Stand

Components are exposed to extremely high pressures during operation and must be tested for quality and material fatigue. Our high-pressure test bench for burst pressure tests up to 15,000 bar can put any component to the test.


Autofrettage for R&D and Prototypes

The autofrettage system is ideal for research and development and prototype manufacturing. The rig enables manufacturers to mount different components with a flexible fixture system. Therefore a high variety of components, designs and prototypes can be autofretted on the system.


Autofrettage for (Diesel) Injection Lines

High-pressure lines such as diesel injection lines (common rails) are autofrettaged for continuous use with pulsating pressure in series production. By applying the autofrettage process component service life can be increased by up to 30%.


Common Rail Serial Production Autofrettage

This state-of-the-art autofrettage system is the perfect solution for the serial production of common rails. Our flagship system is utilized by manufacturers around to world. It enables improvement of the fatigue strength of common rails, injection lines and other components.


Multipurpose Autofrettage

Our multipurpose autofrettage system is ideal for research and development. In addition, is also well equipped for smaller serial production lines up to 13000 bar.

Pressure Cycle Test Rig

Pressure Testing H2 Components

Our flagship H2 test bench is utilised in research & development. In addition, it is used for constant benchmarking of the manufacturing process to validate H2 component quality. The rig is qualified to test H2 components such as 0n-tank valves, sensors, hoses, fuel cell components and more.

Future in Sight

We are your partner for technical innovation. We are enthusiastic about new ideas, approaches and most of all technology. Therefore we contribute our expertise and turn the imaginable into the feasible. E-mobility components are subject to new test standards and must withstand various pressure tests. As an innovative and solution-oriented market leader, we support you with test benches for research and development as well as production. Our test benches are individually tailored to your requirements and can be equipped with a climate chamber for environmental simulation and media temperature control. Typical for e-mobility are tests with a water-glycol mixture of up to 12 bar while controlling a fluid flow and simulating both ambient and fluid temperatures between -40°C and 140°C.


Pressure Testing
EV Components

To demonstrate the quality of media-carrying vehicle components, drive units (electric motors), valves, cooling and heating systems, hose lines, pipes, pressure vessels, and other components are subjected to pressure. Whether it’s for dynamic pressure cycle testing, static pressure holding tests, flow measurements, or classic burst pressure tests, Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau offers you a solution tailored to your requirements.

Sustainability in industry.

P+P test benches are used in research and development as well as for continuous benchmarking of the production process and the quality of H2 components. To ensure the safety of media-carrying components throughout their entire lifespan, components must undergo durability testing under extreme loads and changing temperature conditions. P+P offers flexible solutions tailored to the customer’s needs and can easily integrate climate chambers and media tempering if needed. Our testing systems enable leak tests up to 1050 bar with gas and other media depending on the specifications.
