Analyses and Tests
- Quality Laboratories equal to OEM standarts.
- The latest technology, special design test equipments
- Fully automated and computer-controlled system
- Chemical analysis
- Hardness control
- Microstructural analysis
- Corrosion test
- Rotating and oscillating torque control
- Durability test
- 3-axis wishbone endurance test: Wishbones are subjected to similar road condition tests in three axis. Bumps and potholes, left and right turns, gas and brake commands can be installed on the system. All results can be compared with the results of the original product.
- Ball pin production with optical system using 100% dimensional inspection and eddy current crack control: the size of the entire body and for each ball pin crack control can be done and all these checks can be completed in just 7 seconds. Go and no go gauge controls for wishbones and track control arms: The quicker and most precise dimensional measurement control.
Metrology laboratory, which is adequate to measure and control every dimension and geometrical feature, contains 3D CNC measurement tool (CMM), surface roughness control tool, tool presetter and a diversity of conventional measurement and control equipment.
Material-Metallography laboratory contains Dual Channel (Iron/Aluminium) Spectrometer which is able to analyse up to 19 elements, Metallographic Sample Preparation equipments, 500X Optical Microscope, Piece Structure Analysing and Visualization Programme, Solidity Measurement devices, Pull-Press Testing devices.
Cataphoresis laboratory, which controls the convenience of cataphoresis covered products with respect to customers’ specifications, it contains also Incubator, Ash Oven, Impact Test Device, Precision Balances, Ph Control Equipments, Conductivity Control Equipments, Salt Test Device (Corrosion test) and other Chemistry Laboratory Equipment. The processes are kept under control with periodical checks by professional engineers.
Durability Test Laboratory
Durability equipments are specified based on product groups. Lifetime tests are conducted by taking reference international standards, customer specifications or orginal part requirements. Besides, ball Joint and tie rod end durability testing is taken place inside Cooling Cabinet under -40 degrees climate conditions. As a result of a project performed in 2013, corrupted village roads, urban, suburban and highway road conditions were simulated and required datas were collected, then transmitted to the wishbone triaxial testing device to reach OEM inspection standarts.
