Scope of performance

Vehicle measuring / load data determinations:

  • Preparation of a measuring point diagram
  • Equipment of measuring vehicles, application of measuring technology, sensor systems, strain gauges
  • Development, design and manufacturing of adaptations
  • Measuring runs
  • Test signal determination and evaluation
  • Preparation of measuring data
  • Damage comparison
  • Derivation of collective load


Operational stability of chassis components:

  • Break, buckling load and deformation tests
  • Operating load simulation tests (one channel or multi-channel), block program, endurance tests
  • Operational stability tests under environmental conditions (temperature/humidity, corrosive media)
  • Shaker tests under climatic conditions
  • Several special test benches (splash water test, wear test for chassis articulations)
  • Acoustic and vibration measuring (further information)
  • System test (further information)


Test extent

Typical test extents:

  • Chassis structures, front and rear suspension sub-frames, auxiliary frames
  • Front knuckle, rear knuckle, chassis arms, suspension package
  • Stabilisers
  • Steering systems, steering gear
  • Screwed connections
  • Aggregate suspensions (engine carrier, transmission support, transmission crossbeam)
  • Car jack
  • Motorcycle structures
  • Overall vehicles (vehicle measuring / load data determinations)

Test standards

Typical test standards:

  • Specifications and guidelines of the ordering parties (OEMs, suppliers)
  • Component design data sheets (BAB)
  • Quality Regulations (QV) and testing guidelines (PV) of ordering parties
  • Specification indications
  • Statistic evaluation according to QV 97055
