Testing Steering Linkages

Testing Steering Linkages

This testing system is used to determine the friction forces and moments, including the ‘stick slip effect’, inside and outside the test axis. 

The multiaxis solution described here consists of: 

  • a horizontal testing machine with Fmax 20 kN 
  • testControl regulated drive axes (axial, lateral force and torsion) 
  • 3 manually adjustable axes, allowing the widest possible range of 
  • steering linkage configurations to be accommodated 
  • testXpert software for control of the 3 axes 
  • complete safety housing to CE standards 
  • universal multi-hole plate for mounting equipment

Drive axes: 

1.  Tensile/compression. Axial 20 kN 

2.  Torsion 100 Nm 

3.  Tensile/compression lateral 1 kN´


Manual axes: 

4.  Lateral force: axial position 

5.  Passive clamping: vertical  position 

6. Passive clamping: horizontal position
