The Italian company Bimal Testing Machines S.p.A., part of Bimal Group, has been chosen by global power management company Eaton as its preferred supplier of test stands, on a worldwide basis, in recognition of the excellence of its technology and support. Bimal produces test stands for hydraulics, mechanical, aerospace and automotive/transportation applications in both production and R&D environments, and works closely with universities and laboratories.
The heavy duty machines are designed for testing a wide range of Eaton’s hydraulic components, such as pumps, motors, valves, hoses, steering units, filters, quick action couplings, fittings and radiators, as well as drive components, including clutches, brakes and gearboxes, full drive lines and mechanical components.

Bimal, founded 30 years ago and located in Ponte Valleceppi (Umbria, Italy), is at the forefront of test stand technology. As one of the world leaders in test stands, both custom and standard solutions, Bimal has established itself as a frontrunner in the field of impulse pressure testing.
A platform of technical expertise
«Bimal ongoing investment in resources has built a solid and steadily expanding platform of technical expertise,» says Mr. Mauro Mezzina, Eaton Regional Sales Manager for Italy and Middle East.
