Automotive test bench

Prototypes of new models and finished makes are thoroughly tested in ongoing tests. Vehicles are examined in numerous tests on testers for complete vehicles or for individual components. Many different sensors play a supporting role for such types of tests. The sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used more and more frequently due to constant innovations and modifications of existing models if required.

Automotive

Many applications can be assigned to the automotive area. They range from automobile manufacturing itself to the various automotive suppliers. Quality assurance or automation are frequent application areas. ...

Measure Disc Thickness Variation (DTV) on brake discs

Measuring  the  deformation  of  brake  discs  under  load while braking is an ideal task for the optoNCDT 1700BL. Due to the short wavelength of the blue-violet laser used, the light emitted from the ...

Vibration displacement measurement in road tests

With cars, tests on the running gears form the basic requirements for driving safety. Here sensors are needed which can also withstand the high demands of road tests. As an example, draw-wire sensors are mounted ...

Active suspension cylinder

Modern mobile cranes are always employed when heavy loads must be lifted quickly and at various locations. They are used, for example, in the recovery of broken down trucks. The field of operation is not restricted ...

Vehicle distance to the road surface

The tilting and the driving behaviour are often examined in driving tests with automobiles. Optical laser sensors are ideally suitable for this. They are mounted outside on the body shell and measure the distance from ...

System for testing the risk of creaking with combinations of materials

Ziegler Instruments in Mönchengladbach, Germany develops  and  manufactures  test  systems  that  are  able  to predict the risk of creaking noises due to stick-slip vibrations. In this way, the movement of different ...

Profile

Profile measurement generally describes the measurement of the object contour, flat or as a track. Basically, it is possible that either the sensor traverses across the object or the object moves through the measuring range of ...

Profile sensor for tyre measurement on the test rig

Tyre properties are crucial for safety, driving response and comfort in modern automobiles. To ensure constant quality at the highest level 100% inspection of tyres is already required in production. Apart from dynamic stress tests, ...

Tester for (railway) wheel rim measurement

Testers are integrated in the track bed for the wear control of wheel rims on trains. The profile is checked during the passage of the train. Point-type and line-type lasers measure the diameter and the profile of the wheel. Thus, a ...

Tyre surface

Three laser scanners from the scanCONTROL series measure the surface profile of tyres. The turnkey tester is at the end of the production line where each tyre is examined for dents and bulges. The tyre is clamped and rotated by 360° ...

Tyre measurement

A 100% quality control is indispensable in tyre production for vehicles. Tyres without defects make an important contribution to vehicle safety. Measurement by laser scanner in contrast to point laser sensors or capacitive sensors is ...

Groove

A groove can occur in many different objects as a sustained depression. Whether a groove is desired or not is the question. If a single track measurement of a groove is sufficient, laser point sensors, confocal, capacitive or eddy current ...

Measuring vibrations on an engine manifold

Optimising the processes within an internal combustion engine is becoming increasingly important in this day and age. A whole series of measurements is vital for engine management purposes. The temperature of the exhaust gas is one important ...

Test facility for shock absorbers

After production the shock absorbers pass through a quality inspection facility on a transport system. Here, they are inspected for dimensional conformance, material faults and the presence of certain features. Two laser-based optical displacement ...

Camber / toe angle

The camber or the toe angle is often adjusted during the service life of a passenger car. It is also often necessary to check the adjustments in the development phase. A laser line is projected from the axis onto three CCD arrays for this. The receiving ...
