All of PDS self drilling anchors and couplers are developed in different laboratories and constantly submitted to elaborate tensile tests
, in accordance with NBN EN 10002-1:2020.
For the larger forces (such as PDS 103/51) we rely on a laboratory situated abroad. This laboratory has a measuring range of 0 tot 10.000kN (in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005). The field test at the RER construction site in Dilbeek, commissioned by the contractor TUC Rail, has confirmed that none of our used self drilling anchors / couplers / drill bit combinations did not show any intolerable wear.
The name PDS is a guarantee for quality. The whole production stage is subject to very solid quality management
involving regular machinery inspections, random checks and a final inspection. Raw materials are purchased from suppliers with a proven state of reliability
. In addition, all materials supplied are subjected to a thorough inspection upon their arrival. The ISO9001:2015 certification and CE-marking guarantee our customers the continuation of an excellent quality in the coming years.
