About Mechanical and Shock Vibration Testing

The comfort of a firm, stable, and road-smoothing ride is important for automotive consumer satisfaction. Automobile component and OEMs understand the importance of a quiet and comfortable ride in building customer satisfaction and brand loyalty.

Mechanical shock and vibration testing subjects automotive components and subassemblies to vibration testing using sophisticated vibration control techniques to determine performance and service life. From instrument panels and rear-view mirrors inside the car to air-bag sensors to fuel injection pumps in the engine compartment, automotive components are tested to a range of real-world vibration patterns and levels.

Mechanical shock and vibration testing can determine if components or complete structures will fail under actual road conditions. Additionally, testing identifies noise-making mechanisms responsible for annoyances such as squeaks and rattles.

TÜV SÜD combines broad automotive testing expertise with state-of-the-art equipment including servoelectric actuators (SEA), hydraulic mechanical vibration machines, and environmental chambers to identify problems and help component manufacturers meet OEM requirements and improve satisfaction.
