in physics we trust

Are you looking for an all-in-one comprehensive electro-dynamic testing machine? Look no further than our brand-new testing system LINOVIS®! Our machine is the most versatile up-to-date testing system, offering 3 modes of use (static, dynamic, cyclic) and various test setups that can be switched within minutes. With a maximum force of 25kN, even in static mode, and the option of 2 integrated DIC cameras, we can assure you that no wishes remain unfulfilled. Our oil-free precision linear drive and extra stiff frame design ensure similar testing conditions for every test, from ductile plastics to high-strength steel alloys. The applications of our testing system seem endless, including high-fidelity material characterization, mechanical characterization of battery cells and cell stacks, impact testing on component level, and combined complex loading scenarios for all driving modes. Discover the power of our comprehensive electro-dynamic testing system today and take your testing capabilities to the next level.

user interface & software

smart and extensive user interface

Our detachable touch screen interface makes it easier than ever to operate and manage your testing process and controlling the testing procedure. Our smart interface is designed with the user in mind, offering a streamlined experience that's intuitive and easy to navigate. With just a few taps on the screen, you can quickly and easily configure your testing parameters, set up tests and view real-time results. This touch interface is also customizable, allowing you to create a testing process that is optimized for your particular application, making it faster and more efficient than ever before.


full integration into VALIMAT enviroment

Our stand-alone software VALIMAT® combines test- and model data into an efficient database format and allows for methodical material characterization. The seamless and automated communication between LINOVIS® and VALIMAT® is the perfect basis for an efficient workflow in creating and optimizing a huge variety of complex material models with our fully automated AutoFit process in LS-Dyna, Pam-Crash, Abaqus(i.e.: *MAT_024, *MAT_187, MMATER, *PLASTIC... etc.). In a final step the material model can be validated on simple FEM coupon level tests or even custom built-up geometries and load-cases.
