Quality

We Know What it All Depends On
 

As a manufacturer, compliance with the highest quality standards is a matter of course for us.

Safety-relevant components in particular are subject to the strictest specifications in checking the material quality and fitting accuracy.

In order to meet demand across the entire product range, various centrally controlled departments for quality management work closely together.

Quality procedures are based on extensive, repeatedly carried out product tests - both before inclusion in the range and after.

Tests Down to the Smallest Detail
 

In the state-of-the-art testing laboratories of the bilstein group, various replacement parts are examined in detail.

The process for determining quality includes destructive and non-destructive tests. Among other things, we have electronic parts examined with an X-ray machine (in an external laboratory), which can be used to precisely detect production defects inside a housing.

The dimensions (accuracy of fit) and the material are among the most crucial tests required. To improve our product lines, we report optimisation potential back to the suppliers - making an active contribution to the development of our partner producers.
