The DUMMY CRASHTEST CONFERENCE is a new series of events in the CTS event area and is aimed specifically at all those who deal professionally with crash tests, dummies and measurement technology.

Especially for the automotive and supplier industry, aircraft industry, research institutes, safety equipment manufacturers, accident researchers and engineers this workshop represents a special added value.

The workshop offers interesting presentations from the fields of dummy development and production, crash measurement technology, barrier solutions, to software for data acquisition and evaluation. The program is rounded off with various real-life tests on the adjacent crash site.

Successful conversion to the new DIN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 for CTS.

"Testing of road restraint systems; Testing of support structures for road equipment; Testing of vehicle security barrier systems" - this is the official description on the accreditation certificate that CTS now holds according to the new DIN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 standard for testing laboratories. The conversion, carried out by DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH), is the basic prerequisite for CTS to continue performing industrial tests to the highest standard. "We are very pleased that we were once again able to meet the high demands of the DAkkS. Especially the flexible accreditation according to Category I allows us to steadily expand our service portfolio. ", says Michel Osterkemper (Head of Technical Department/QMR). In addition, "Low Speed Impact Tests" can now also be carried out on vehicle security barriers in accordance with PAS 170-1.


New crash tests in the webshop

More than 60 new crash tests from the DTC and AXA Winterthur are online in the CTS webshop since last week. These crash tests deal especially with the topics of parking lot collisions and load securing. We are very pleased about the new crash tests and hope that they will be of use to you. 


WWU research project

The WWU (Westfälische Wilhelms Universität Münster) conducted crash tests with the PRIMUS dummy on the CTS site as part of a research project. In cooperation with the engineering firm Schimmelpfennig + Becke and Accidenta, the motion behavior of dummies and real people was investigated in collisions with low overlap. 


Happy holidays!

The team of CTS sincerely thanks you for a good cooperation, for the trust you have placed in us and for the pleasant collaboration. We wish you and your family a merry and blessed Christmas. Have a good new year!

Our office will be closed between christmas and the new year.    


Dummies on the way to China

The worldwide demand for the PRIMUS dummy is steadily increasing. In cooperation with our sales partner Kistler, three dummies left the factory for China and Portugal for the first time last week.


The production of the PRIMUS

Know-how and precision are the key elements in the production of the biofidelic dummy "PRIMUS". The new video "CTS dummy solution: Our brand new PRIMUS-DUMMY" on the CTS-YouTube channel shows how this special dummy is produced in the in-house manufactory.
