Air Spring Test System

Apply precise loading in six degrees of freedom to rolling stock air springs to evaluate durability and measure stiffness, multi-axial response and damping characteristics. These robust multi-axial systems employ state-of-the-art MTS controls, application software and hydromechanical technologies to improve the noise, vibration and handling aspects of rolling stock ride quality.

Applications

  • Uni-axial stiffness
  • Multi-axial response
  • Damping measurement
  • Durability

Test Specimens

  • Air Springs
  • Air Bags
  • Elastomeric Components
