While at Automotive Testing Expo, make sure to visit the Open Technology Forum, where Anthony Khoraych, president of Advanced Test & Automation (ATA), will discuss the dangers of aeration in engine components and how ATA has developed better ways to test for it.
At the concurrent free-to-attend Open Technology Forum, Per Rasmussen, Chief technology officer at GRAS Sound & Vibration, will present the results of the company’s study in cooperation with Volvo Cars.
Visitors in search of technology that allows them to more easily pinpoint the source of excessive NVH should make sure to stop by VisiSonics’ booth at Automotive Testing Expo Novi 2018, where the company’s engineers will showcase the 5/64 Audio/Visual Camera and the associated FINDr noise identification software.
Micro-Measurements has launched its latest S5198 strain gauges, which feature minimized non-uniform PCA strain gradient effects and reliable operation up to 200°C, in addition to a resistance specification of 350 Ω, which the company claims is best in class.
Visitors looking for load cells that measure the forces on a body in every direction should pay a visit to Michigan Scientific Corporation’s (MSC) booth, where the company will be presenting its latest TR6D six-axis load cells, which offer a compact, easy solution to measure output loads that are acting on a body in all six directions.
Kyowa, a Japanese specialist in strain gauges, transducers and datalogging systems, will use Automotive Testing Expo 2018 to present its latest top-of-the-line memory recorder and analyzer, the EDX-5000A.
Visitors to Automotive Testing Expo who are looking for accurate equipment for monitoring fluid pressure to help with dynamometer testing or gearbox testing should stop by Kulite’s booth, where the company will be presenting a series of new transducers.
The new CANSAS-FBG-8T fiber-optic CAN measurement module from imc Test & Measurement uses specially developed fiber Bragg grating sensors (FBG) at eight optical inputs to measure temperatures in high-voltage environments and output the results via CAN.
The Slice6 high-shock Ethernet data acquisition system from California-based Diversified Technical Systems (DTS) was developed for the US Army’s WIAMan (Warrior Injury Assessment Manikin), a ground-breaking vertical load ATD.
Visitors looking for individual sensors for crash testing should make sure to drop by Meggitt Sensing Systems’ booth, where the company is presenting the new Endevco Model 7310 angular rate sensor, which is designed for measuring rotational velocity in whiplash tests with ATDs and in automobile rollover tests.
Created to assist in heavy strenuous work and developed for ergonomically correct handling, Stringo’s car movers have been moving cars around factory production lines, test labs, design studios and workshops throughout the world for more than 30 years.
Key to the design of low-speed, high-torque dynamometer load brakes, oil shear technology from Force Control Industries works by circulating transmission fluid through a wet-design friction brake to provide a fluid film between the friction discs and drive plates.
Refrigerants are the latest test products to be highlighted as potentially damaging to the environment. Indeed, European regulations require refrigerants with a global warming potential (GWP) of higher than 2,500 to be banned by 2020.
Developed for the US Army WIAMan, the first vertical load ATD, the Slice6 high-shock Ethernet data acquisition system from California-based Diversified Technical Systems (DTS), has caught the attention of the automotive industry thanks to its now proven track record in extensive laboratory drop tests and live-fire tests.
Campbell Scientific will debut a whole new family of data acquisition solutions at Automotive Testing Expo, tailored for quickly configured bench tests for standalone measurements, as well as multi-sensor systems with large channel counts.
