Tratos experts joined representatives from VDE Offenbach for a facility visit at Taurus instruments in Germany and to see a demonstration of a new fire testing machine designed for the upcoming Construction Products Regulation (CPR).
The company’s Ennio Bragagni-Capaccini, Vincenzo Bellini and Rainer Pollmann partnered Detlef Stämmler from VDE Offenbach during the visit to meet Taurus Instruments’ CEO, Stephan Heise.
VDE in Offenbach is Germany’s only BauPVO test facility. Among a wider-range of testing it tests single-cable to EN60332 and carries out bunched-cable fire testing to EN 50399.
Tratos’ strategic aim was to buy the same Taurus Instruments machines used at VDE Offenbach to ensure its products are ready-tested for CPR compliance. VDE Offenbach hosted Tratos and Taurus later the same day where a more detailed explanation of the testing equipment’s operation was provided.
Choosing this test machine will allow Tratos to respond faster to CPR requirements. The company’s cables can be tested in its own laboratories to give greater customer confidence and quicker response to orders covered by the new requirements.
