Our customers can rely on LAPP products – worldwide, in every industry. This is because our quality promise is important to us. Our products are of central importance for power distribution, energy use and data transmission, which is why we thoroughly test our solutions under the toughest conditions before they are launched on the market. Our quality promise includes ensuring that our products meet the standards and norms for specific applications and industries and deliver the greatest possible level of safety. And they do so in every country we supply. This includes certificates for fire protection and oil resistance, electrical voltage resistance, as well as the fulfilment of hygienic design requirements through the design of products that are suitable for cleaning and the use of materials suitable for hygiene-critical applications (in short: Hygienic Design).
Laboratories and test centres around the world
To achieve this, we operate test centres around the world with very high standards for material and product testing. The properties of the materials used are constantly tested to ensure consistent quality. In our laboratories in Germany, Italy, France, the USA, India, South Korea, Singapore and China, for example, we test how sunlight, rain, ozone, seawater or oils and cleaning agents affect the materials we use. In our test centres, we assess the electrical transmission properties, carry out service life tests, subject products to challenging continuous load tests and examine their properties in the event of a fire.
Naturally, the results of the tests have a direct impact on the design and production of future LAPP products. The diverse and stringent testing processes guarantee the quality of our products and the conformity with standards and legal requirements. A particular highlight: by connecting our test laboratories worldwide, we’re making our knowledge available to our specialists all over the world. Sustainability and compliance with environmental regulations such as REACH or RoHS wouldn't be possible without the tests in our laboratories.
Passing the toughest tests
All tests are not created equal. Only the toughest tests guarantee the highest quality. This is why all our products and materials are put to the challenging test in our trial and test centres worldwide. This is because it is a matter of practicability and suitability for the most varied of applications – for the best possible connection solution for our customers. And we have a duty here: to keep our quality promise.
