Description

Vehicles are exposed to a wide variety of road induced loads whilst driving on rough road surfaces, over potholes or when hitting curbstones. These loads have an impact on the lifetime of the vehicle components and often lead to rattling noises within the passenger compartment. In addition, they can also impede driving comfort. Add environmental loads such as climate fluctuations and sunlight to the equation, and the vehicle components age and wear even faster.

We offer a road simulator, integrated in a climate chamber that also includes solar simulation. In this test facility it is possible to combine all these load conditions in an accelerated test programme. By doing so, companies achieve a cost-effective and reproducible results in the shortest possible amount of time. This way of working has become the industry standard for every modern car development programme, where continuous improvement of product quality and at a lower cost is of the essence.
