Certification procedure for safety-relevant components in passenger elevators from a manufacturer's point of view.
In mid-October of this year, we had the pleasure of welcoming a group of test engineers and technicians from TÜV Rheinland to our company as part of a training trip.
The main reason of this course was to get to know the views of test procedures for the preparation of type examination certificates for safety components according to EN81-20/50. The focus was on the preparatory measures in the run-up to certification as well as the individual processes of such test procedures. The TÜV Rheinland employees were accompanied by our responsible test engineer Mr. Steffen Kemp.
The 1.5-day event naturally included a comprehensive look "behind the scenes" - so that all participants were also able to gain an impression of the development and manufacturing of such components. The topics "continuous assurance of consistent quality" and regular spot checks were also included. In this regard, corresponding tests of safety components were then also carried out on our free-fall test stand and subsequently evaluated and discussed.
P+S Polyurethan Elastomere GmbH & Co. KG also offers such events as a service. For further details please contact us.
