Dürr test stands increasingly growing in importance – even for “autonomous driving”
Puettlingen, December 2015 – The product line “Commercial Vehicle Testing” of Dürr Assembly Products comprises testing facilities for chassis geometry measurement, headlamp aiming, setting of driver assistance systems and roll/brake/ABS tests for commercial vehicles. Dürr Assembly Products has the appropriate solution for all vehicle sizes and axle numbers including large trucks and small vans, buses and tractors.
Thus, for example, x-wheel truck d, the test stand for contact-free chassis geometry measurement has proven its superiority over established, contact-based systems within a very short period of time, setting new market standards. Featuring contact-free x-3Dprofile measuring technology, this worldwide unique system is able to handle the high complexity resulting from the number and location of axles. x-wheel truck d does not require any modifications to be made to the measuring facilities fitted to the tires and frame. Renowned OEMs are already benefiting from the major advantages offered by this testing system in terms of quality, flexibility and cycle times.
Supplemented with systems for the secure and cycle-time-optimized configuration of driver assistance systems such as ACC and LDW, it allows customers to precisely calibrate sensors and cameras using equipment provided by Dürr Assembly Products. This application is of special importance given the rising number of driver assistance systems being fitted to modern commercial vehicles – particularly with regard to “autonomous driving”.
Increasingly stringent testing requirements
The large variety of different vehicle types is also a key factor with respect to axle numbers and loads: Dürr Assembly Products offers customized roll/brake and ABS testing facilities for all commercial vehicles. Despite the increasingly stringent testing requirements, the systems are reliable and easy to operate and maintain. One example is the newly developed multifunction x-road medium truck test stand which supplements the range and is used for vehicles with a maximum axle load of four tons.
The broad range and innovative new developments in Dürr Assembly Products’ Commercial Vehicle Testing product line was on display at the “Innovation Day” on December 17, 2015. In Puettlingen (Germany) the visitors were able to view the x-wheel truck d chassis geometry test stand in action. In addition, the new test stands for DEUTZ-FAHR tractors were showcased. Immediately after the “Innovation Day”, these test stands were installed on the customer’s site. One of the highlights of the event was the live demonstration of the roll test stand with a tractor.
