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.


Strong partner

Last week CTS received the award "PARTNER OPERATION" from the Würth company. The cooperation was especially pushed by the former CTS employee Jan Drosselmeier, who is responsible for the CTS workshop as a field service employee. CTS is pleased to have such a strong partner at its side.

Crash tests with the PRIMUS dummy were recently carried out for a study in the field of accident reconstruction. These were rear-end collisions between cars and bicycles. To secure the results, the dummies were subjected to an autopsy in the CTS laboratory in order to record the damages on the test specimen for the evaluation of the study.


The PRIMUS dummy as impetus simulation model

Not only CTS was represented with a booth at the Safety-Week in Würzburg last week, but also the internationally active EDAG group from Switzerland. 
A special eye-catcher at this year's event was EDAG's "CityBot" innovation model. The PRIMUS dummy was a special passenger. 
In this train, the cooperation between CTS, EDAG and HWT Dresden was announced. Currently, a simulation model of the PRIMUS dummy is being developed on the basis of the Impetus model, which should be available in spring 2021.
