The bearing capacity and stiffness of solid rock are key criteria for many applications e.g. exploration to reach energy sources, large-scale building projects such as excavation, tunnel, bridge and barrage developments, or establishing a new research field.
APS GmbH offers various testing machines and extensive expertise and knowledge based on more than 25 years of experience in the field to support and manage testing to the highest standards. Rock testing devices are comparable to those used in the field of soil mechanics but are able to operate with higher forces (until 10 MN).
APS GmbH, with its brand Wille Geotechnik®, develops and produces standard and fully automated testing machines that enable engineers to determine the mechanical characteristics and bearing capacity of rock material through uniaxial and triaxial shearing tests. Our high-resolution transducers and individually adjustable controlling software leads to highly accurate rock strain analysis.
World class service and support
Through years of installation experience and close cooperation with our customers, our service engineers guarantee the smooth and successful operation of our products within the shortest time possible after delivery. Customers even have the opportunity to participate in an inspection of our factory prior to the delivery of their product of choice. This enables the customer to conduct hands on ‘function-testing’, familiarising themselves with the new device with the assistance and insight of our engineers.
