WYKEHAM FARRANCE is a worldwide leader and pioneer in advanced soil mechanics testing systems. Originally formed in 1941 by Geoff Wykeham and Geoff Farrance, it has been part of Controls Group since 2004. For over 70 years it has been at the forefront of the development of test systems designed to give engineers the instruments to replicate complex phenomena such as seismic activity, vibrations, unsaturated conditions and control of principal stresses, etc in laboratories. Wykeham Farrance systems are capable of reproducing these effects thanks to a number of advanced computer/software controlled systems with user-friendly interfaces.
In the last decade our development focused on a new concept for laboratory testing systems, dedicating new, skilled resources to the production of highly-automated equipment.
The result is AUTOLAB: a range of machines and software for static and dynamic test automation.
