Materials and Component Testing for Automotive Applications

The automotive industry needs mechanical test data to verify its computer aided designs. Parameters of interest include design stiffness, materials rigidity, components testing, joining technology, fatigue and materials forming.

Engine & Drive Train Tests - clutch tests, chains, high temperature materials, crankshafts.

Chassis Tests - steering columns and linkages, springs and dampers, rims and wheels.

Body Tests - bumper impact and stiffness, door buckling, window and door seals.

Interior Design - seat belt tensile tests, headrests, car seat firmness and durability.

Electronic Component Design - buttons and switches, solder and PCB board reliability, wire tensile tests, insulation.
