In the period before 1985, the question arose again and again on the part of the automotive industry as to whether there were service providers who had the option of carrying out penetration testing on automotive parts. For this reason, the BMB Gesellschaft für zerstörungsfreie Prüfung mbH was founded on 28 March 1985 by the founders Brandt, Meyer and Berg. Due to the "aluminium boom" in the chassis sector, the German automotive companies saw their further way in combining their technologies with tested quality.
It all began with intrusion and X-ray inspection, which were the core competencies of BMB and in which BMB specialized. Later, in addition to indentation and X-ray inspection, other non-destructive inspections such as computed tomography, microfocus, eddy current and visual inspection were added.
With the BMB Senator Hans W. Berg was the first service provider who was not only able to test on site at the customer's premises, but also carried out non-destructive testing in his own halls for the first time.
With the testing experience of the BMB and the necessary equipment, parts for the aerospace industry, Deutsche Bahn and electrical components are now tested at the BMB. Tests are also carried out for the food industry. Mr. Hans W. Berg continued the BMB by leaving both partners. Nowadays it is a family business.
The BMB company has been the leading service provider in Europe for more than 30 years, testing predominantly cast, forged and plastic parts in several non-destructive and destructive processes in its own plants and with approx. 100 employees. Due to the large plant park, the BMB is able to respond flexibly to the wishes of its customers. Furthermore, the family-owned company BMB is characterized by economy and reliability. The BMB secures these company values through continuous training and development of its employees and its know-how. BMB's range of services helps its customers to draw direct conclusions about their manufacturing processes. In order to ensure the necessary quality requirements of the components, BMB offers "tested safety" in all NDT procedures and NDT procedures, including computer tomography.
