AUTOMOBILES & AUTOMOTIVE COMPONENT TESTING

 

Automobiles are complex mechanical systems made up from thousands of automotive components. From ergonomics, acoustics, electromagnetic, material physics, lasers automations, and other advanced technologies, each automotive component must work efficiently and flawlessly with one another as any slight defects could affect the overall performance of the automobile and potentially compromise the automobile’s quality and even put the safety of the driver at risk.  

Over the years, as safety and quality controls of automobiles and automotive components become stricter around the world, automakers and automotive component manufacturers must ensure that performance requirements and safety standards are met.
