Even though the automotive industry has been exposed to immense change like hardly any other sector in recent years, one fundamental fact has not changed. Alternative drives, new vehicle concepts or car sharing models go back or forth: The fault tolerance of customers continues to be close to zero. This is why our solutions, implemented as independent test modules or customer-specific test systems, are and will remain a constant in the quality management of our automotive sector customers.
New functions, new test systems
Ultrasonic parking sensors in the bumper, power windows and mirror adjusters in the door trim, weight class-dependent triggering torques for airbags or electric tailgates – just four examples of how automobile manufacturers are constantly implementing new technical features in vehicle components or assemblies. As specialists in the fields of testing and inspection, we are constantly faced with new and complex tasks that we solve creatively and cost-consciously together with our customers and partners.
Application report: Flexible test system without a workpiece carrier
In response to a request from the automotive sector, Berghof Testing has developed a new concept with which components can be checked for correct assembly and position at the end of the assembly line, flexibly and independent of the version. Compared to the original checking, Berghof has dispensed with elaborate conveyor technology based on workpiece carriers. The significantly simpler mechanical design saves production space, changeover effort and time, testing time and therefore costs.
