Whole Vehicle & Automotive Component Test Equipment
Versatile high-performance single- and multi-channel systems for vehicle and component simulation, characterisation and durability testing.
2- & 3-post ride simulators for motorcycle testing
2- & 3-post motorcycle road simulator systems are designed to reproduce the vehicle responses experienced under normal driving conditions. These systems are typically used to test motorcycle body, frame and suspensions components to establish their performance characteristics and durability.
Single- & multi-station test systems for durability testing and characterisation of damper & shock-absorbers
Servotest has been at the forefront of servo-hydraulic damper test machine development for over 35 years. Our systems can deliver the performance and accuracy required for even the most demanding applications, whether for single shock-absorber, MacPherson strut assembly or multi-damper setup.
4- & 6-post ride simulators for automobile, SUV, bus & truck testing
4- & 6-post road simulator systems are designed to reproduce the vehicle responses experienced under both normal and extreme driving conditions. These systems are frequently used to test vehicle body, chassis and suspensions components to establish their performance characteristics and durability. Other specialist applications include quality control and 'squeak and rattle' assessment.
Multi-axis 'corner' rigs for testing of vehicle suspension systems & components
The vehicle-corner rig is a highly versatile tool for the development testing of suspension system designs in terms of both performance characterisation and durability assessment. The rigs can be used individually, in pairs for 'per-axle' and in fours for 'whole vehicle' suspension evaluaion.
7- & 8-post advanced ride simulators for performance & race vehicle testing
7- & 8-post advanced road simulator systems are designed to extend the capability of 4-post rigs by superimposing a controllable pre-load on the vehicle chassis. This pre-load can be used to simulate the variable, but relatively low-frequency, effects of aerodynamic down-force on motor-sports and performance vehicles.
Steering assembly durability test rigs
Aimed primarily at durability testing Servotest can offer a broad range of steering test rig solutions. These can be used for testing both hydraulic and electric power assisted systems and associated components whether for passenger cars or for commercial vehicles.
Multi-axis multi-station systems for durability testing of automotive ball joints
Servotest has extensive experience in the design and manufacture of bespoke testing systems used to provide a repeatable laboratory simulation of the loading experienced by automotive ball joints throughout their service life.
