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.

How did Tutankhamun actually die?

The ZDF has conducted an experiment on this. The role played by the PRIMUS dummy can be seen in the current episode "Tatort Antike: Rätselhafte Gewalt" (from min. 25.50). 


Legal clerks of the OLG Hamm on visit

Last week about 20 legal trainees met at the crash site in Münster-Wolbeck for a training course.  In addition to a tour of the crash facility and interesting technical presentations by Dr. rer. nat. Ingo Holtkötter (Managing Director Schimmelpfennig + Becke) and Dipl.-Ing. Peter Schimmelpfennig (Managing Partner CTS), all participants were able to take part live in a high-speed crash test.
