Automotive Testing Expo Europe exhibitor Additium Technologies has developed its new E-Launcher electrical impact test system, which is based on linear motor technology.
Linear propeller technology has continued to evolve and improvements in digital power electronics control have made linear motor-based propellers an affordable option offering several advantages.
Additium’s E-launcher, which can be provided in two sizes, is said to offer a number of advantages over existing systems. This includes better control and therefore much better impact speed accuracy; higher repeatability as the system is less influenced by external factors; and lower acceleration during propulsion, protecting impact shapes from high force peaks. It is also easy to operate and maintain, has low noise and occupies less space.
The E-Launcher can be combined with the multifunctional positioning and support frame and different impactor modules, to perform a number of tests including free-flight headform tests; lower legform tests (EEVC, Flex-PLI, PDI); upper legform tests; guided headform tests; bodyblock tests; headform pendulum; FMH; ejection mitigation tests; and misuse tests.
Visit the company at booth 1418 at Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2016. The show takes place May 31 to June 2.
