Mecmesin has more than 35 years experience in helping automotive OEMs and their component suppliers with their force and torque testing requirements. Our test systems are used to perform a wide range of tests on all types of interior and exterior vehicle materials and components including tensile, compression, peel/adhesion, wire terminal strength and torque tests.
Around the world many automotive OEMS and tier one and two suppliers already use Mecmesin test equipment to:
|Adhesives strength; structural use and interiors||Seating compression tests|
|Airbag connector pull strength (pull-test weld to break)||Soldered flexi-circuits tensile test (component pull-off)|
|Brake pad attachment shear strength||Spring testing|
|Car bumper deformation testing||Stall torque of motorcycle engines|
|Car window sliding force (glass/rubber friction test)||Steering rack torque measurement|
|Compression testing the membrane buttons of a key fob||Tensile tests on vehicle interiors e.g. fabrics and interior trims|
|Connector pull test on fuel-injection components||Test the force to open the door|
|Dashboard controls testing (switch, stalk, and membrane, push and twist effort)||Vehicle door opening/closing effort|
|Determining the break-back force of door mirrors||Window and sunroof winder torque|
|Interior cord, plastic toggle fasteners and webbing tie-down bonds||Windscreen flexure and strength|
|Puncture, tear and peel of HGV curtains, straps and restraints||Wing mirror fold test|
|Seat belt release effort under tension||Wiring harness terminal testing (crimp strength)|
|Seat operating efforts (headrest, recliner, etc)|
