Tracked vehicle performance test rigs (wheel hub test rig)

The functional testing of military vehicles still largely takes place on outdoor proving grounds. However, part of this test content can be better carried out on complete vehicle test benches from RENK:

  • Function tests
  • Performance tests
  • Quality checks
  • Noise tests
  • Brake tests
  • Emission measurements
  • Leakage tests

While tests in rough terrain are often random due to the environmental conditions, a reproducible test program on a test bench provides immediately available and reproducible results.

Hub test benches are perfect for testing entire tracked vehicles. With these, the torque is applied directly to the drive wheels and thus loads the entire drive unit. Depending on the vehicle type, the vehicle can be lifted or the tracks can be decoupled from the drive wheels.

With test benches from RENK, processing times and costs can be reduced in the development, production and maintenance of military vehicles with even higher quality assurance.
