Test centre for tyres, wheels, wheel bearings and brake discs
We have been testing the components of wheel assemblies in our facilities for over 30 years. Our highly qualified and competent experts develop and operate test systems for qualifying wheels, tyres, wheel bearings, drive flange hubs and brakes as well as the wheel assembly as a whole.
On our Flat Trac tyre test bench (Flat-Trac ® III CT), tyres are exactly measured, characterised and parameterised. Cycles as per the standards of the working group for wheels (AKR) or individual operating load simulation tests (BLNV) are run on the High-Speed External Drum Test Bench (ZWARP on HATOR). With supported speeds of up to 300 km/h HATOR enables the examination of half-axle components under conditions close to reality (operating load simulation test).
Specially developed test benches such as the impact test bench are used for pre-damaging wheels and testing failure behaviour (in compliance with AKR specifications). The drop height and applicable drop masses for this test bench allow for all kinds of impact and crash.
Our Test Benches
- Tyres: Flat-Trac ® III CT tyre test bench
- Brake discs: High-speed external drum test bench (HATOR)
- Wheels: High-speed external drum test bench (ZWARP on HATOR); radial impact test bench (RADIAS); impact test bench; rotating bending test machines
Our material and fatigue strength testing laboratory is equipped with leading-edge technology for damage analysis and the determination of material parameters.
