KOMAG Laboratory of Material Engineering and Environment, as the only testing unit in Poland, offers full range of accredited tests of wheeled child conveyances. Among others deep, walking and twin carriages are tested. All the tests are carried out according to PN-EN 1888:2012 “Child Care Articles. Wheeled Child Conveyances. Safety Requirements And Test Methods” Standard.

The scope of the offer covers tests of:

  • durability of a pushchair construction on an irregular surface,
  • handle strength,
  • abrasion resistance of wheels,
  • durability and effectiveness of a braking and parking device,
  • strength of wheels,
  • strength to twisting and stretching of pushchair parts,
  • strength of attachment devices for fixing pram bodies and seat units,
  • durability and effectiveness of restraint system and fasteners,
  • durability of harness anchorage points and attachment of the restraint system to the seat unit,
  • release of a locking mechanism by one single action,
  • entrapment of head, body or fingers,
  • stability of baby carriages and longitudinal stability of the pram body with carrying handles,
  • accessibility of the filling materials,
  • durability of handle anchorage points of pram bodies and detachable seat unit,
  • marking durability,
  • geometric parameters of a pushchair,
  • thickness of an internal lining of pram body or seat unit and plastic packaging,
  • flammability and hazardous substances used in baby carriage construction materials.

The European Parliament and Council 2001/95/EC Directive of 3rd December 2001, regarding general products safety, imposes on manufacturers and distributors requirements of use safety guarantee for the products that are about to be placed on the market and are intended to be sold and dedicated to customers, including grills.

A grill can be considered as safe if it is conformable to PN-EN 1860 Standards harmonized with the above-mentioned Directive.

An offer of the KOMAG Laboratory of Material Engineering and Environment covers solid fuel - fired grills and firelighters for solid fuel inflaming tests performed within flexible scope of accreditation.

Scope of test covers among others:

  • product quality,
  • geometrical dimensions of construction elements,
  • engine’s work duration,
  • stability, durability and resistance to mechanical damage,
  • flammability and resistance of firelighters to humidity.

 

Deep knowledge on designing the special gears enabled to create 545 gears operating in different branches of industry. KOMAG specializes in designing, strength analyses and author supervision over manufacture of the special toothed gears of high power. We have special engineering software programme, which has been under development for many years as the author programme, and we use commercial version of the programme of well-known KISSsoft AG Company.
Specialists from the Division of Longwall Shearers are trained periodically directly at Swiss training centre and they are well qualified.


The Division focuses mainly on the following gears:

  • cylindrical gears,
  • angular-and-cylindrical gears,
  • planetary gears.
