SHOW NEWS: Weiss’s MAST/climate chamber combination

LinkedIn +

One of the topics under discussion at Weiss Umwelttechnik is the testing system that consists of a Multi-Axial Simulation Table (MAST) and a climate chamber.

Inside the 10-20m3 climate chamber, temperatures ranging from -30°C to +90°C may be set, and a one Kelvin/min rate of temperature change may be reached. The MAST in the middle of the climate chamber is moveable on three separate, parallel axes in translation and rotation. In this way, movement, vibration, and acceleration in every direction can be simulated. The walls of the chamber are made of an elastic material that prevents mechanical stress caused by the movement of the MAST during testing from being transferred onto the climate control components.

Weiss says that, with the aid of this testing system, automobile components can be tested for their resistance to environmental factors in combination with acceleration and vibration. This should leave the OEMs’ customers equally well prepared to drive over potholes in winter as through a tropical region with a full trunk!

Weiss is exhibiting on booth 1230 at Automotive Testing Expo 2015 Europe, which continues at Messe Stuttgart, Germany, until Thursday 18th June.
