Bodies and components tested under difficult conditions


According to the company's philosophy of offering customers the best possible product for any application, EMPL gives priority to user safety! Empl vehicle bodies must function under extreme loads and may be comprehensively tested at the company's in-house test track for optimisation before the vehicle is handed over.


Vibration tests to check the holders and attachment of accessories and components as well as the diagonal, dynamic distortion of vehicles and their bodies are easily possible.
