Testing Laboratory for Agricultural Machines

Activity


Main purpose of Testing Laboratory for Agricultural Machines is to satisfy customers' needs and maintain their trust. An implemented management system compliant with ISO/IEC 17025:2005, provides high reliability of test results. Our tests are conducted in accordance with principles of best practice, fairness, independence and confidentiality. Our competence to perform the tests are confirmed by the accreditation granted by the Polish Centre for Accreditation - Accreditation certificate no. AB 190 (accreditation since 1998).


We carry out:


  • Acoustic and noise tests, including noise caused by vibrations of products and electrical equipment, machines and vehicles,
  • Electrical tests of machines and equipment,
  • Environmental engineering tests (sound power),
  • Mechanical tests of electrical products and equipment and machines,
  • Tests of physical properties of products and electrical equipment, machines and vehicles.

We offer:


  • research on the safety and ergonomics of the use of agricultural, horticultural, forestry and other machinery and devices, including evaluation of the operating instructions,
  • preparation of documentation assessment of conformity with EU directives, including hazard analysis and risk assessment for the purpose of issuing the EC declaration of conformity,
  • development of machine safety models and assessment of compliance with the requirements of EU directives and harmonized standards at the concept and design stage of the product,
  • assessment of conformity of agricultural machines and trailers with the provisions on technical conditions and equipment of vehicles (traffic on public roads), including measurements of masses and wheel loads and axles of road vehicles (up to 10 tons / support point),
  • development of technical expertise of agricultural, horticultural, forestry and other machines and devices,

  • training in the application of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/ EC, regulations and safety standards and the preparation of operating instructions according to harmonized standards,
  • research, tests and expertise of agricultural, horticultural and forestry machinery and devices for the purposes of assigning characters:
    • "PRODUCT FOR MEDAL" (distinction of products with high utility values, confirmed by PIMR as an independent institution),
    • "KRUS SAFETY SIGN" (distinction of products with increased security values, awarded by the President of the Agricultural Social Insurance Fund),
  • cooperation in the implementation of research and development projects, European projects and projects co-financed from EU funds,
  • consulting in the design and making of safe machinery and devices.

We carry out the safety and acoustic power tests for the purpose of:

  • assessment of compliance with European Union directives: Machinery 2006/42/EC, 2014/35/EC Low Voltage, Noise 2000/14/EC and General product safety 2001/95/EC, including the issuing EC declaration of conformity;
  • voluntary certification for "B" safety mark;
  • checkups for market surveillance authorities.

Tests carried out by PIMR Testing Laboratory can be the basis for issuing the EC declaration of conformity and CE marking of machinery. Our test reports are recognized in all countries which are signatories to the Multilateral Agreement on Mutual Recognition of the ILAC MRA.

We participate in standardization activities within the technical committees of the Polish Committee for Standardization. We are a member of the European Network for Testing of Agricultural Machines ENTAM and Polish Testing Laboratories Club POLLAB, thus we constantly improve the tests methods.


Our advantages are:


  • extensive experience in testing;
  • competent, highly qualified professional staff;
  • modern, often unique measuring and testing equipment;
  • impartiality and independence;
  • the principles of friendly cooperation with customers, including substantive support to achieve the conformity with EU directives, formulating opinions and interpretations,
  • PIMR civil liability insurance.

Benefits for clients from cooperation with an accredited Testing Laboratory for Agricultural Machines:

  • obtaining reliable research results necessary in conformity assessment procedures;
  • improving the quality and safety of products;
  • avoiding or eliminating the defects and incompatibilities of machines with requirements, preventing loss of reputation and potential losses arising from liability for a defective product;
  • receiving research results recognized in other countries - access to export markets in Europe and in the world;
  • reducing the risk of the placing on the market of new machines and implementing innovative solutions;
  • improving the company's image.
