Servo Hydraulic Test Centre


  • endurance strength investigation of complete vehicles, vehicle structures and components
  • investigation of vehicle comfort characteristics
  • determination of material parameters
  • material property identification
  • quasistatical crush testing for analysing of body-in-white deformation and specimen deformation behavior (e. g. FMVSS 214)

Technical Data
