Overview of our natural science services

We place the greatest value on: Professional competence, quality and transparency

Material analysis by means of spectrometry

  • Spectrometry, as a forensic scientific method of checking the originality and authenticity of a vehicle, has been used in our engineering office since 1986.
  • Dating of metallic materials
  • Non-invasive, mobile and can be used at any time
  • Comparative studies
  • Verification of year of manufacture and manufacturer period
  • Cooperation with sworn material analysts, chemical laboratories and universities

Material thickness measurement

  • Ultrasound for coating thickness measurement of paint and metal
  • by means of eddy current, magnetic inductive or ultrasound method
  • Comparison of the values with the technical drawings of the vehicle manufacturer
  • Sheet metal thickness measurement for originality testing and safety
  • for determining the initial paint, filler and paint build-up and the quality of sheet metal, fibreglass and carbon surfaces

Magneto Optical Method

  • Matching Number Verification
  • Revealing hidden digits, double strokes, grinding marks
  • For almost 7 years we have been able to examine embossed markings on vehicles NON-INVASIVELY and in 95 % of the cases we have a meaningful result.

Stundenlohn Befragung

Sie sind ebenfalls im Oldtimerwesen unterwegs und wir würden uns sehr über Ihre Teilnahme an unserer Erhebung freuen!

Eine repräsentative Abfrage und Erhebung von Stundenverrechnungssätzen insbesondere im Bereich der Oldtimer und Sonderfahrzeuge gibt es nicht. Die DEKRA Erhebung zu den Stundenverrechnungssätzen wird den oldtimerspezifischen Anforderungen nicht gerecht. Daher haben wir uns dazu entschlossen nun jährlich eine Befragung bei repräsentativen Oldtimer-Fachbetrieben durchzuführen.
