Continual demands from the market means continual development and improved products for vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers. Customers want cars to be more comfortable and for the driving experience to be as stress-free as possible. To achieve this, extensive research on new designs and regular testing during manufacturing must be performed in order to ensure that design specifications are conformed to. Inherent in these processes are quality control procedures.
Brüel & Kjær systems provide quick and easy interfaces for engineer and technician operation – whether it is a simple application or a complete turnkey solution. The range of products span the entire measurement chain – from transducer to post-analysis and reporting – allowing for all validation and conformance checks to be performed on one platform for both production and R&D. If faults are discovered, the results can be easily saved and retrieved from a common database.
Pilot series validation
Faster production means faster delivery to customers. We furnish vehicle manufacturers with easy-to-use tools that ensure high-quality, reliable data including Sonoscout, is a highly portable system that quickly records NVH data and validates results immediately using an iPad.
Investigate Squeak and Rattle
Brüel & Kjær’s LDS vibration test platform supports industry-standard QA practices for squeak and rattle vibration testing as well as array-based noise source identification and sound engineering technologies for detection, validation and improvement of squeak and rattle performance.
HEV battery testing
To ensure that hybrid vehicle batteries can withstand rough road conditions, manufacturers are subjecting them to extensive “shake and bake” testing. Our LDS Vibration Test Platform delivers the raw power of medium to high force shakers, power amplifiers and controllers.
Pilot series validation – Automotive Test Manager
If a more extensive pilot series testing at several contact points is needed, the Automotive Test Manager system covers the full testing envelope in a compact, easy to use package that can be configured to match the current testing/reporting specifications.
