Test applications for automotive industry with focus on hybrid- and e-drive

The excellence achieved by automotive manufacturers and their suppliers results from both intensive research and development and fulfilling the most demanding quality requirements. That requires test equipment solutions with realistic simulation for the entire range of mechanical loads faced by vehicles and units, while allowing rapid recording and analysis of measured values.

Testbeds for e-drive-systems

  • High speed testbeds (>21.000 rpm)
  • Special requirements for e-motors, frequency converters and testbed mechanics

Testbeds for (Hybrid-) engines for passenger cars and commercial vehicles

  • Research and development
  • Quality assurance
  • Hot test

Passenger car engine

  • Power pack (motor and gearbox)
  • Gearboxes
  • Rear axle
  • 4 Wheel drive systems
  • Hybrid / e-drive systems

Chassis dynos

  • Test of whole cars
  • Test of powertrain system
  • Test of energy management system

Test applications for non-automotive industry

Measurements, tests and certifications according to product standards are becoming increasingly important for manufacturers of electrotechnical components worldwide. This results in the need for test facilities that are also used for development, service life investigations and routine tests or factory acceptance tests. The manufacturers of mechanical components such as gears or pumps need test benches with powerful drive technology for this purpose.

Test systems for e-fly
