QUALITY CONTROL

The quality management is preventively and consistently in place covering the entire process chain. From the preliminary supplier to the final installation of the kitchen at the end customer’s premises – our quality management has the continual improvement of the entire process in focus. With this holistic approach we have maintained our position as a quality leader in the industry for many years. The guidelines for quality and environmental management are deep-seated in the company philosophy and the corporate culture at. For production this means mistakes in production must be prevented, defective products are not to leave the factories at all.
Image
ROBOTIC TEST STATION
Our robot is an all-round talent. He can be programmed so that hisfunctions and movements correspond to the real work actions in a kitchen.Such as: opening and shutting the swivel flap doors and folding flap doors,opening and shutting the full pull-out, opening and shutting the hingeddoors. 15 years of daily kitchen use are thus simulated in fast motion underrealistic conditions.
15 YEARS IN TWO WEEKS
Doors and pull-outs are subjected to at least 60,000 opening and closing cycles.This wear and tear basically fast-forwards the service life of at least 15 years of daily kitchen wear.
Image
LOAD BEARING WALL
There are guidelines for virtually everything. Our entire lives are for the most part regulated by standards. Though at times this can be confusing, it is however, helpful when you are dealing with the sturdiness, longevity and safety of kitchen furniture. Exactly what kitchen furniture must withstand is specified in the respective DIN standards. For maximum safety and in consideration of a long service life, our self-imposed standards often far exceed what is required. In the laboratory we continually test the load bearing capacity of top and bottom shelves and loose shelves on the load-bearing wall.
75 KG BEARING LOAD PER WALL UNIT
The wall suspension and wall unit construction are designed to hold 75 kg. This is far more than conventional tableware weighs: An 18 piece coffee set made of porcelain, for instance, has an average 205 weight of roughly 5 kg. Put another way, we are talking about the weight of a coffee set that would serve 90 people.

SURFACE TESTS

The kitchen is at the heart of life. And is thus expected to perform: it has to hold up to aggressive substances like citric acid or highly staining liquids. In order to test surfaces for their ability to withstand daily wear we subject them to chemical testing and abrade them with rough and sharp objects, and even simulate long-term wear on the handles tens of thousands of times. Only then does the surface of our kitchen really show what it can withstand.
Image
CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
During testing, applied agents are left on the surface for a predetermined period of time according to wear group. For instance: acetone 10 seconds, vinegar 1 hour, coffee 16 hours, olive oil 16 hours.
ABRASION TEST FURNITURE SURFACES
This test measures the abrasion resistance of the decorative surfaces. Continuous sanding with a defined applied weight and abrasive grit simulates wear of the surface.
SCRATCH TEST
A diamond point is pressed onto the rotating test specimen with increasing force. The scratches resulting on the test specimen are visually assessed with the viewing device.
