Moog has developed a three-channel electromechanical test system to simulate loads on the seat back and benches of vehicles. The system has been installed at a car seat manufacturer in Asia that manufactures complete seating systems and interior components for automotive and transport companies.
The test system is based on the Moog Electric Linear Actuation Solution that incorporates Moog’s innovative brushless servomotor and ball-screw technology, a state-of-the-art servo drive and user-friendly commissioning software that is easy to set up, maintain and move around in the test lab, while saving energy and providing clean operation. This is especially important when testing is performed inside a car. In addition to seats and benches, other applications can be tested with this solution such as: car doors and panels, car accessories, assemblies, gear levers, pedals, and seatbelts.
The Moog test system consists of three electric actuators, a portable test controller with three channels, three servo drives, and test software. All of the components are optimized to work together to provide the highest levels of performance and accuracy. All core products are designed and built by Moog using technology that is proven to be reliable in the most rugged applications.
