STEP Lab

STEP Lab products and services schema

About us

STEP Lab was founded in 2011 as a manufacturer of machines for mechanical testing. Today STEP Lab is a company that produces and sells electromechanical and electrodynamic systems for static, dynamic and impact mechanical tests.
The product range of STEP Lab is divided into the following areas: Electromechanical actuators based on ball screw, Electrodynamic actuators based on linear motor technology, Drop Towers, Climate Chambers and Robot Based Systems.
We provide a wide range of products from our catalogue or custom made, to meet the client’s needs.
All our machines are based on electrical actuation and are managed by the same controller and software interface Test Center – the result of a constant work of implementation and optimization.
The heart of the company is a team of engineers who are constantly developing mechanical, electronic and test systems software.
The company has grown rapidly and is now the supplier of important companies and laboratories.

Mission

To become technological leader in the development of test systems for materials and products.
