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 the entire drivetrain of wheeled vehicles. With a number of load units, the torque is applied directly to the wheel hubs and thus loads the entire drive unit. Depending on the vehicle type, the vehicle can be lifted or the drive train can be set in rotation without moving the vehicle by using special test hubs with additional bearings.
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.
