TS3 endurance test bench celebrates birthday



One year ago the TS3 endurance test bench was installed. The TS3 technology was developed by Timbatec together with researchers from the Bern University of Applied Sciences and ETH Zurich. Today TS3 AG is a successful start-up.

Around 100 people celebrated with the developers of the TS3 technologies and saw live how the TS3 experts glued wooden components at the front ends. The endurance test bench is used to test and demonstrate the possible applications of the TS3 system. It has now been standing for a year in the courtyard of the BFH Department of Architecture, Wood and Construction (AHB) in Biel. Since the inauguration of the endurance test stand, TS3 technology has been used in first construction projects. 

Technology creates completely new possibilities in timber construction   

The newly developed TS3 technology bonds wooden components made of solid wood, glulam or CLT on the front side. That enables point-supported, multi-axial load-bearing panels or folding structures in any shape and size. The technology thus opens up completely new constructive and design possibilities that have not existed in timber construction up to now.    

The company TS3 AG is the owner of the TS3 brand and acts as a service provider for joint bonding on the construction site. Timbatec and TS3 continue to work closely together for the static dimensioning of projects with TS3 and all other services related to timber construction.
