We offer a broad range of test benches as well as complete test systems for on- and off-road mobility and develop tailormade solutions for our customers.
Learn more about some of our flagship products: the new R&D e-mobility test benches for electric transmissions and components, our state-of-the-art multiaxial wheel tester (MARP), and the HSU5, the optimum solution for measurements in the high-speed range.
The core component of our test rig is a high-performance drive module. In combination with the drive bearing module and the receiving module for the test object, it combines to a complete test system.
The base for the receiving module is optionally fixed, inclinable and swiveling and available for single or multi-machine operation with or without cross table. Various optional modules complement the modular system. A receiving module for electric motors and one for coaxial test objects extend the possibilities of the test bench. An acoustic cabin for the drive module and an air conditioning cabin for the receiving module for the test object are also possible.
In addition to e-mobility components, tests of conventional car transmissions can similarly be performed due to the modular design of the test stand. The appropriate frequency converter and measurement technology, automation and a highly dynamic control perfect the system.
The state-of-the-art multi axial wheel tester (MARP) shows the strength of ZF Test Systems in the area of hydropulse testing technology.
The extraordinarily high level of machine rigidity and the unique adjustment dynamics of the MARP test bench allow extremely realistic simulations of test piece characteristics. As a result, completely new areas in the dynamic response and in the qualification of measured values can be tested.
While conventional systems can analyze dynamic events only up to approx. 10 Hz, the highly dynamic hexapod concept of the MARP test bench where six sensors analyze the test piece simultaneously makes it possible to simulate events up to 50 Hz and thus provides a wide variety of new applications.
The unique force measuring platform of the MARP allows tests of the endurance strength of wheel studs, rims, wheel bearings, brake systems and tires, in addition to wheel-and-tire assembly testing. The MARP enables, for example, simulations of the vehicle weight and speed and of lateral, braking and driving forces.
The quality standards for vehicle tires are continuously increasing. In addition to established test characteristics such as low speed uniformity, balance and tire geometry, quality assessment at high speeds is gaining importance. ZF is staying abreast of this trend and has launched HSU5, its optimum solution for measurements in the high-speed range.
ZF is the market leader for high speed uniformity measurements in manufacturing. The new generation of the HSU test bench is already well-established on the global market. This is not surprising given that the HSU5 developed by ZF is a true all-rounder: Apart from high-speed measurements with a maximum speed of up to 200 km/h, the test bench also enables reliable measurements in the low-speed range.
The HSU5 is based on the standard assemblies of the modular ZF Final Finishing equipment and is compatible with all other test rigs systems in this series. This offers significant benefits to our customers with regard to spare-parts stocking, maintenance and the multifunctional use of measuring rims.
