Airbag Control Module Life Cycle Development Test System

Validation of FMVSS safety devices in the automotive industry is critical during all phases of development and manufacturing. The Airbag Control Module Life Cycle Development Test System is able to simulate all the I/O up to 16 airbag deployment modules, allowing each of them to experience real-world conditions and test for the proper response.
The system interfaces directly with an electro-dynamic shaker and commands the output to provide the actual crash signature by which the UUT's performance is measured. Under these conditions, the test system is able to monitor the actual state of all the outputs and verifies that each module responds correctly and consistently to the stimulus applied.

End of line LED Control Board Tester

The End of Line LED Control Board Tester is a production test stand that tests 100% of the interior lighting control boards and LED boards produced.
Circuit boards are manually loaded by an operator. Once loaded, the test stand automatically makes the required electrical connections. Parts are tested using either voltage or current controlled pulse trains while the part is connected to simulated loads. Part performance is determined by measuring either output voltages or currents. Parts operating per specification are marked using a laser part marker.

Link Block Adjuster

The Link Block Production Test Stand utilizes a PCI embedded real-time control card and various signal conditioning hardware to dynamically measure and adjust the position of a mounting post in both X & Y. The system utilizes two lasers to measure the position of the post in real-time and to adjust that position through two custom nut runners to within 0.001".

Motor Life Cycle Durability

By integrating National Instruments and other third party hardware into a custom environmental chamber, we provide an automated Motor Life Cycle/Durability Test System to validate the integrity of AC motor coils during prolonged exposure to high temperatures and humidity, including timed applications of mildly corrosive fluids.
Our INERTIA™ test automation software allows flexible sequenced tests to be created, saved, executed, and monitored, individual coil integrity throughout the test for proper resistance, conductivity, and possible loss of insulation integrity using HI-POT validation. Up to 24 samples can be tested at once.

A system designed specifically to test commercial compressors for air conditioning systems. Learn more

Production Seat Test Systems

Automotive seating has become increasingly complex with features such as occupancy sensing, vehicle bus communication, memory positions, heat and other options.
The Production Seat Test Systems are able to test all the features on the seat and compare them to the build requirements, making certain that the correct features are built into the seat and that they are all functioning properly prior to shipment to the OEM. Tester software can tie into production management systems to obtain the build requirements and store results in plant databases.

Roller Dimensional Inspection System

The Roller Dimensional Inspection System was designed to measure the diameter and the crown of rollers that are used in the pulp and paper industry.
The rollers vary size from 20" - 240" in length, and 4" – 28" in diameter. The lasers have a resolution of 0.1 micrometer and a linearity of +/- micrometer. This system achieves accuracy of better than 0.0005 inches dependent on both temperature and vibration.

Timing Chain Loading

The Timing Chain Loading System tests the strength of chains used in the automotive industry for timing and in transmissions.
The system consists of a ball screw actuator that applies a pre-tension to the chain at a specific load. Once the pre-tension load is applied, the system allows the user to define a displacement or load to stretch the chain. The system tests chains from 10" to 70" in circumference and is capable of 70,000 lbs of force.
