  • IQC Brake Test System
    The IQC Brake Rotor/Drum Test system is designed for. 100% Resonance Frequency Inspection. Brake Rotors/. Drums are required to pass a series of tests to validate. that the modal parameters of a rotor/drum are within. product specifications. The Signalysis IQC System. brings traditional NVH
  • Load Cell Application - Brake Evaluation
    As common test among major automotive manufacturers, brake testing isn't only required by government regulation, it is also a safety measure that any consumer would definitely want undertaken before putting a vehicle into use. Brake system testing is normally carried out during various stages
  • Brake Rotor Testing Using Capacitance Sensors
    , and the safety of others. Most don't realize the extensive design and testing that goes into braking systems to insure we stop in time. Take the brake rotor for example (see figure 1). Under normal operating conditions it is subjected to extreme temperatures and forces, which causes rotor distortion
  • Abrasion test results/Lab Report
    of 30 degrees, (3) a mechanical. brake to control platform, and (4) a standard sandblast cabinet. Crushed walnut shell, AD-3B (-12+20 mesh) is. used as the blasting medium. Each 100 hour test is started with 50 pounds of new crushed shell and the same. abrasive when fresh is less abrasive after 100
  • Torque measuring in calibration lab on the test bench
    . According to the report, 60 percent of the recalls were the result of mechanical defects. At 17.3 percent, vehicle brake systems are frequently affected. An example from April 2009: an incorrect torque was the probable cause of a recall, in which 10,000 owners were obliged to return their compact cars
  • Measuring Forces Where the Direction of the Load Changes
    An aircraft manufacturer needs to measure the force a pilot must apply to the brake pedal to stop an airplane. To do this, a load cell is affixed to the brake pedal's upper surface. A test technician then applies a force with his/her foot. Another load cell is sandwiched between the brake shoe
  • Diagnosing ABS - Some You Just Don't Forget
    The vehicle came in with the complaint that the ABS could be felt working through the brake pedal at very low speeds. I carried out a short road test to verify the complaint and, sure enough, the ABS would cut in at very low speeds; in fact, just before the car came to a stop.
  • 2000 Buick Park Avenue-- Luxury ride eats snow drifts for breakfast
    I remember driving my parents '73 Caddy in the snow and having a pretty good time fishtailing around corners and doing donuts in empty parking lots. Needless to say my parents weren't with me. A weeklong test drive of the 2000 Buick Park Avenue Ultra in some wintry Cleveland weather gave me
