Instron offers a variety of testing systems and rigs for static, quasi-static and dynamic loading of structures and components. This includes Component Test Systems, Shaking Tables, Road Simulators, Axle Test Systems, Full Vehicle Test Systems, Wheel Test Systems, Shock Absorber Test Systems and Dynamic Torsion Test Systems.
Axle Test System
Axle test rigs are used to reproduce different loads applied to the axle elements when a vehicle is traveling over a variety of road surfaces. Instron can provide models for testing of car, van, truck and bus axles with 6 degree-of-freedom.
Biaxial Wheel Test System (ZWARP)
The Biaxial Wheel Test (ZWARP) developed by Instron includes an additional hydraulic actuator which allows a controlled and highly accurate adjustment of the angle of attack to produce high lateral forces.
Full Vehicle Test System
Instron offers comprehensive solutions with and without vehicle restraint, with long- or short-stroke introduction of lateral forces as well as the optional environmental simulation with regard to temperature humidity and sun loading.
HYDROPULS® road simulators are a versatile and cost efficient solution for testing load inputs through the tires. They are used to perform durability tests, as well as acoustic and vibration analyses in testing and development (BSR, NVH) on complete vehicles, subsystems and power train assemblies.
Multi-Axis Shaking Table (MAST)
Multi-axis simulation (MAST) tables are designed for testing of a variety of different specimens in six degrees of freedom. These include components and subassemblies exposed to vibratory loads during vehicle operation; from seats, dashboards and interior equipment components to engine mounts, and cooling modules.
